Help needed to find Proview TV remote codes.

I just purchased a 32" Proview LCD TV, Model RX326. At the same time I upgraded my regular Comcast Digital Cable service to their Hi Definition service, which came with a new Cable box and remote.
The instructions for the remote came with setup codes for many different TV brands, but nothing for the Poview. Does anyone out there know what the code is for a Proview RX326, or where I can find it?

Thanks in advance for any help or suggestions.

Proview customer support line is 1 877-532-8176. Call and complain.

I phoned Proview Nov 12th, when I purchased my Rx326 and was told they have NOT YET DEVELOPED a universal code. I asked when???? They said 3 weeks. It's Jan 17th, and now (almost 9 weeks) and still no code. Keep bugging them so they will get on the ball. I suggest once weekly.

I hope someone will post the code here as soon as they get it out, but don't count on it. Keep calling. Talk about returning the TV to get their attention. The instuctions say not to return to purchaser, BUT If you purchased yours at Costco (like I did) you CAN return it (Computer equip is 90 days, but TV's can be returned much longer....sometimes even up to a year if the reason is a good one (like no universal code). PROVIEW KNOWS THAT. Tell them you purchased from COSTCO. Tell them you want to keep the unit, but this is making you reconsider. Complain, complain. That's the only way we can get this code developed.

That's my 2 cents.

Are you serious? You want to call and complain to PROVIEW that your universal remote doesn't have a code for their TV set! What possible control do you think that Proview has over the codes that are in your universal remote? I also have to fault the Proview C/S for stringing you along here, it was totally irresponsible of them to let you believe that they had the power to create a code for your universal remote and that they would somehow be able to magically send the code through the airwaves into your remote.

Now, there is a code available for JP1 users here:
[Link: hifi-remote.com]

For the technically inclined, this code uses the NEC1 protocol with a device code of 8.

For people with "One For All" remotes, or any other UEI remote, that don't have JP1, this device code matches several existing DVD and Cable setup codes, so if you're willing to program all the buttons manually, I can post the codes that you would need, just tell me which OFA remote you have.

Assuming that your remote has a code for the Proview, follow these steps:

1) Look up the code in the manual and write it down
2) Check the manual to see what the procedure is to program a setup code into the remote (it's different for every brand of universal)
3) Follow the procedures outlined in step 2 and enter the code found in step 1.

Of course, if your remote doesn't have a code for the Proview, you're SOL without JP1.

There's no such thing as a universal remote that will control RF devices.

here's a copy of an email that was sent to me by one of Proview's customer service rep. hope it helps.




The only codes available to use with some universal remote controls:004,0004 or 1004.

If these codes dont work ,you will have to use your original remote control to operate the TV only.

Thank You,

Customer Service

Might be best to work from the other end -- check in with the manufacturer of the remote.
