Alright, I bought a new Sony KDLV40XBR1 that comes with a RM-YD002 Remote Control, however the codes in the Manual do not work with my cable box.

My cable service provider is Time Warner
The codes in the manual are 209, 210, 211 and all 3 do not work

I have a Scientific Atlantic 8300HD w/DVR, is there anywhere I can get more information about this so I can use my TV Remote and not that crappy time warner P.O.S?

All I can say is that original equipment remotes are notoriously limited in their ability to control other devices. You might try all of the other codes, but they probably won't work either, which of course means you have to use the crappy Time Warner POS.

It may have something to do with the fact that the codes were probably supplied for analog cable boxes and won't work on newer HD boxes. Which is unfortunate since yours is a current TV with all those capabilities built in.

I'm guessing I should look into a universal remote as almost all of my AV equipment is Sony, all except the HD DVR Cable Box and my speakers. I have the TV, HD DVD, and Sony receiver (str-de998) I was hoping to control everything with one remote, it sounds like I'm stuck with that crappy time warner remote huh?

Yup. You can get a OneForAll 6820 or 8820 on line for about $15-20. Check them out. They have learning capabilites and will usually control most everything, and also they can access advanced/discrete codes.

This would get you into a one-remote operation for a reasonable price.
