Programming DirectTV remotes


Any suggestions on how to program my DirectTV remote to my 7yrs. old, 42" AKAI HD TV??
I've tried all of the codes on screen.

    What model is the remote?  Model number is on top front corner.

      Thank you for your response, litzdog911.

      The model# for the remote control is: RC66. The Model# of the TV is: PDP4225M.


      I have been able to get the remote to activate On/Off on the TV using code#: 11675.

      No response  from any of the other codes from the list on the TV screen.

    You can also search by volume


    move switch to TV


    1. Press and hold MUTE and SELECT (LED flashes twice)

    2. Enter 991 then 1

    3. Press VOL UP


    once you see the VOL bar on your TV press SELECT to save


    Note that not all functions will work with all TVs.  if there is no code, then you will need to get a more advanced universal remote control
