    you will need to reprogram your remote.
    press, and hold the tv mode button till all the mode lights come on, then release.
    press and release the big power button
    slowly press the channel up button repeatadly until the tv turns off
    now press the # button to lock in the code.

    this should work for you. if it does not, let me know the tv and receiver model and I will instruct you further.

    Press and hold the clear tv button at the top of the remote until the other clear buttons light up.
    The tv button should be blinking.
    While it is blinking, press in the code and then the # button.
    The tv button should blink off at this point.
    Try the power button and volume buttons to make sure that they function.
    Once you've verified that they do, press the SAT button to get it back in satellite mode and the functions should still work. Use this page to find the codes that are most likely to work.
