Does anyone know of a code for this Emerson TV? I have tried all different combinations of codes in the manual for tv's, dvd players, and tv/dvd combos to no avail. Any help would be greatly appreciated as my directv remote won't control this tv, and the original emerson remote is broken, so i can't learn in a code. This is a "One For All" URC 8820. Thanks.

The exact setup code is TV 1886. The newer version 8820N has this code. The older 8820B00 does not have this code, or anything similar. The only UEI remotes with TV 1886 are the OFA URC-8820N, 10820N, and RCA RCRP05B.

BTW, from hifi-remote.com, the TV/DVD combo is made by Funai, and uses NEC1 132.224.

I can control the TV portion of this combo unit, but not the DVD. Is there a universal remote with codes for both the TV and DVD functions? A DISH network remote control DVD code would be okay, or one for the RCA RCR312WR universal remote control. The combo unit itself has only STOP-PLAY-EJECT - no fast forward, reverse, or pause. Thanks in advance!

The three remotes listed in the second post will all work for both TV and DVD.

Probably the RCA RCRP05B is the easiest to get-- $20 at Best Buy, Walgreens, etc. This remote will do all the basic functions out of the box, including FFWD, REV, and pause. Some funtions, like Top Menu, Display, and Menu Return will need to be added manually by entering in 5 digit EFCs. We'll tell you how.

Thanks for the instant reply. I'll give that one a try, since my current RCA remote only works the TV and not the DVD. I'll be back for help adding the other functions as soon as I find/buy the remote. Won't be for awhile, though - probably after Labor Day.

Finally found the RCA RCRP05B here in Dayton. I entered the TV 1886 code and I can now turn the unit on and off, raise and lower the Volume, and Play, Pause, and Stop the DVD. But that's all I can do.

I would love to add a few functions manually by entering in 5 digit EFCs, if you could tell me how to do that. FFWD and REV for the DVD would be nice, but changing the Input for the unit - from TV to DVD or VIDEO1 or VIDEO2 - is my top priority.

Thanks in advance!

Use the 994 Command Keymover (one device mode) to assign the following EFCs.  In the list below, I've also shown the functions which are built in to the remote on TV 1886.  Where the function name and button label aren't an obvious match, the button label is also shown.  So Rew and Fast forward should work now without modification.

These are the only functions I know.  You can search for others by systematically testing all EFCs between 00000 and 00255.  Of course, the unit needs to be in a state for which a command makes sense.  For example, sending Menu Return when the unit isn't showing a Menu may not get any response even though it is a valid command.  Go slowly while testing.  There is a low but non-zero chance that a IR command will open a service menu.  If that happens, you'll want to depower the unit before sending any other IR commands.

Test by tapping (don't hold) Setup, and then entering the 5 digit EFC. When the last digit is entered, the IR command is sent.  Hold the last digit to keep repeating the signal.

Thanks again for the detailed instructions. I can enter TV code 1886 and gain control of a few DVD functions, but some of the ones you say will work do not work for my Emerson LD200EM8 TV/DVD combo unit. I can use POWER, VOLUME, MUTE, MENU, PLAY, PAUSE, and STOP to control the DVD; and the UP, DOWN, RIGHT and LEFT arrow keys function during the DVD MENU selection. The ASPECT key works in TV mode, but will not change the screen size while watching a DVD.

But no matter what I do, I cannot use FFWD or REV. I tried programming the codes using the 994 Command Keymover (one device mode), but to no avail. The one thing I did notice while using the RCA RCRP05B is that the TV light on the remote blinks when controlling the DVR functions. I had expected the DVR light on the remote to blink - indicating the remote is in the DVD control mode. If I press the DVD remote button once - to put the remote in DVD control mode - then none of the buttons control the DVD.

So, I am slight better off than before, because I can use the PLAY, PAUSE, and STOP functions remotely - without having to walk to the unit.

However, I want to add/clarify some information - just to make sure I'm not trying to do something that is impossible. This Emerson LD200EM8 TV/DVD combo unit only has physical buttons for STOP, PLAY, and EJECT. There are no additional ones, i.e., no FFWD or REV buttons on the unit itself. Could that be why I cannot use these functions? I'm not the original owner of this unit, but find it hard to believe that Emerson sold a unit with a factory remote that did not have these functions.

Additional help would be appreciated.

Of course, I don't know if your unit is capable of FFWD and REV. Other users with the same model number have seen that capability, but sometimes manufacturers change things.

To clarify, IR signals are just flashes of light, and there is nothing intrinsic to the signal to indicate that it should control a TV or DVD. Remotes do usually organize the table of IR protocols, device numbers, and function numbers into pages of setup codes that are most likely to work with a given kind of component. When the TV button flashes, it doesn't indicate that the signal will be accepted by a TV; instead it means that the signal is defined on the TV setup code. TV 1886 will always flash the TV light unless VPT or channel lock have been set.

Anyway, to get FFWD or REV, please also try setup codes TV 1864 and Video (DVR or DVD) 2194. These setup codes use the same protocol and device numbers, but some of the function numbers are different. Try every button- not just the transport buttons. Don't worry if the it takes two setup code to control everything-- we can combine them into one setup code.

If that doesn't work, invest 30 mintues or so in trying all 256 possible IR signals. Instructions in Post #7

Here's the manual.  It clearly shows that FFWD and REV are supported.

Thanks again for the great information. I'll keep experimenting and report back [although it won't be for a few weeks].
