RC73 Genie remote setup code for TCL Roku tv

I just got a TCL Roku TV (model 40FS3750) from Costco and tried to set it up to work with my RC73 Genie Remote.  However none of the codes for the TCL tv brand worked properly (volume does not work, although the tv turns on/off); also there are no codes for Roku.  I found on the forum that Dynex worked with the RC72 remote; and after some experimentation found that the Dynex DXR32TV code worked for me (the DXR32 did not work). 

Has anyone else had this issue or found a better code that will work with my particular TCL Roku model and the RC73 Genie Remote?

Hopefully in the future DirecTV will update their codes to work with the new TCL Roku TV models.

Works on SHARP 50" 4K LC-50LBU591U. Code 10885! Also, this is great info also shared on a prior post:
"One thing you may want to do after this is to go to the Roku settings > power > select input (I did satellite) so that every time you turn the tv on it goes to satellite. Then I don't need to use the roku remote to watch tv-only need to use it to set to streaming of other inputs" Enjoy black Friday shoppers!

Best to post on their facebook/twitter page or email them directly as they don't read these posts and they never said their remotes will work with all TVs.

Had the same problems. Tried RCA codes.  They did not work but Vizio codes 3 or 4 worked

Thank you SOOOOOO much for this.  Spent 30 minutes talking to support without any success.  I saw this after I hung up, found they Dynex TV in the TV list on the Receiver (Menu>Settings) and voila, it can now control the power and volume!!! You were a lifesaver.  Thank you!!

This worked great for me too (after hours of trying codes).

One thing you may want to do after this is to go to the Roku settings > power > select input (I did satellite) so that every time you turn the tv on it goes to satellite. Then I don't need to use the roku remote to watch tv-only need to use it to set to streaming of other inputs

Same here. Success using the Vizio codes for 40" TCL Roku TV. For anyone else, just select the last option titled "I don't know my model" and cycle through the Vizio codes. The third one on the list worked for me.

Purchased a 65" TCL Roku 8/24/17. The tip on the Vizio code was perfect. 10885 programmed the Direct TV Remote RC73 to my tv. Power and volume work perfect! Thanks again!

We purchased a Hitachi 55" with Roku and after several calls to DirecTV and Hitachi couldn't figure out the Genie Remote. Thank goodness a nice tech at DirecTV hinted to me to go to google and get on the forums to see if anyone had any ideas and I found you. I would never have come up with this! So I tried the Vizio I don't know my model and the third worked for me as well. My husband was ready to return the TV but now we can keep it. Thank you so much!

None of the RCA or Dynex codes worked. One of the Vizio codes did with remote RC72 as well.  Maybe the RC73 remote is newest? Just wanted to confirm RC72 works with Vizio codes.

Thank you.....my husband tried for days and couldn't get a code for the TCL 32" from Walmart. After reading your post, and days of grabbing the wrong remote to turn it up, I tried your way and I think it was the 5th code that worked. Thanks again!

You all are awesome!!!! After almost 45 minutes on phone with a tech they decided to send me a new remote I knew that it wasn't remote but I just agreed to get them off phone. I then started searching this forum andsaw that al ot of you used a dynex code. I think it was the second code and all works.  My tv is a TCL roku smart tv and works great with dynex code thank you all!!!!
