    2-hold 'mute' & 'select' simultaniously until light blinks twice(approx 5 secs)
    3-type the code 11758

    Never give up! Contact me first. Always available and online.

    Some older receivers don't have newer brand names listed. You can find codes on www.directv.com/remotecodes or ask us as you did. I have a Vizio and 10864 works perfectly. The others are 11758, 10885, 11499, and 11756. All the best!!

    With the tv code that give you partial control programmed, try the following: 1. tv 2. press and hold MUTE & SELECT for two blinks 3. enter 993 4. press SELECT If you still don't have vol control, I suggest searching tv codes by vol command, like so: 1. tv 2. press and hold MUTE & SELECT for two blinks 3. enter 991, wait for two blinks 4. enter 1 5. press VOL UP 6. keep pressing and releasing CH UP, if and when the tv vol changes 7. press SELECT to lock in code.
