I bought an AVion from ShopNBC and was told that Protron makes the TV. If you have any way I can get the code for this TV,I would appreciate it. It's frustrating with the 2 remotes. I am trying link it up with direct TV remote. Can you help. Ryan

I found this forum recently while looking for information on Protron TV's. Because of the information I gathered, I bought a Protron PLTV-26 from Sears and am very pleased with the picture quality, sound quality and looks. Being disappointed with the bulkiness of the remote which came with the TV, I decided to input codes into a universal remote. On my second try, I found a code that works. It is 002. Hope it works for you.

The codes used in universal remotes are not "universal", in other words you can't use a code that works in a Zenith remote in an RCA remote, etc, so without knowing what the brand and model number of the universal remote that you are using, the code that you posted is worthless.

The PMDVR8 is a relatively well known remote, so this is useful info.

So, to summarise, the Protron PLTV-26 television can be controlled using a Philips PMDVR8 universal remote with setup code TV/002.

Nope. My area of expertise is "One For All" remotes, I really don't know much about other brands.

I've been reading this thread for the last year or so, trying all of the 'codes' and so far, none have worked with my Cox HD/DVR controller and my 32" Protron TV (from ShopNBC). I think that Shop NBC sucks for not forcing Protron to give out the codes and, even though I love the TV (though the speakers are terribly tinny) Protron's idea of customer service must have been learned from the Japanese around 1960 when their level of manufacturing was about the level of 'wind up mice'. Protron folks has zero, nada, zip concern for anyone, otherwise the SOB's would have posted their codes on their web site. I just did a Google search and found their web site (it wasn't easy) although the name is simple enough (www.Protron.com) and left them an email message asking them to both create a 'click' on their web site telling us the darn codes as well as posting to this forum all of their codes.
We'll see what they do and I'll do a follow up.
I don't know squat about codes but, it seems that each TV should have only one set of codes, whether 2,3,4,5 or however many numbers. The darn things should not be secret so that this long of a forum has to exist, just to find them.

Follow up on the Protron 32" TV code problem. I never heard back from Protron.com and having little luck with Cox helpdesk. If anyone has broked the 'code' for the 32" Protron TV using a Cox HD/DVR Remote control (4 digits), please advise.

By accident, I just found a web site that has (apparently) codes for every imagineable TV, including about 8 for Protron. I haven't tried them all yet, but will, and if I have any luck, I'll update this.
