Remote doesn't turn on or off TV


The codes only work for the volume for my old 32" CRT Samsung TV. When I called in Tech could not help. They said to call Samsung which I did. Samsung asked me the manufacturer of the HD DVR receiver. I gave them the model HD-20-700, but that did not help them. They said that once they had the manufacturer's name, they could help. I just don't know. 


Also, I have a Sherwood Newcastle R-765 Audio-Video Receiver that the remote does not seem to be able to work. Can you help me with that issue?

    many top brands of tv don't have working commands mapped to the tv on & off keys, in those cases use the middle power key in the tv device for both on & off powering of tv. Its upto the code you use and model of tv if the TV ON & OFF  will work or not. No where is it promised that these keys work with every brand of tv out there, sorry.

    I have a similar (ish) problem I have an old Philips TV. When I program the remote (for my whole home dvr), I have the slider switch at the top of the remote all the way to the left. I select the make of the TV, but the model is is not offered. I chooese one, it workd for volume/mute and power off, but it won't power it on. Any thoughts?

    I have the same issue except I can do it but I have to use the slider in the tv position for the tv and Direct TV mode for the receiver. Brand new TV. I had to auto search for the code. Maybe there are more than one.
