Try the App on your TV:

 

Menu > Help > System Set-up > Program your UV Remote

I need the same help with a TV I just got. The method described in the guide of the remote doesn't work, neither does your suggestion to use the in-guide app. Any other info, like a specific code for us to input?

How about a Harmony remote?

Re: Programming U-Verse remote for TCL tv's?

I programmed my Harmony 300 using the TCL remote and it works fine. I used an RCA remote code to program my Tivo series2 remote to control the TCL's power and volume. I have not been able to find any way to program the uverse remote to control the TCL. I tried the codes for RCA tv's, but none of them would power the TCL on/off. They did make the power light flash, though. I hope they fix it soon.

Re: Programming U-Verse remote for TCL tv's?

I have a 24" TCL Model LE24FHDD20, and after much diligence in entering codes manually, I finally found that 1000 works. It was listed under RCA codes, so I'm not sure if any of them would work for other TCL TVs or not, but it's worth a try.  :smileyhappy:

If JackiGirl's code doesn't work, look on the plate on the back for the actual manufacturer, many times it's listed.  Then you can look under that brand's codes, possibly the way JackiGirl found the code.

 

Another way to find out about the brand, google it and there might be some links that explain who the manufacturer is.  :smileywink:

I purchased a TCL 40", and none of the avbove codes work. I have tried ALL of the codes for the following TV's:

 

RCA via TV Help

Samsung via TV Help

RCA as published in Uverse support Remote Codes PDF 

Samsung as published in Uverse support Remote Codes PDF

RCA HDTV as published in Uverse support Remote Codes PDF 

Samsung HDTV as published in Uverse support Remote Codes PDF

 

I hope an update is made to either the remote or to TCL TV's to allow them to work together!

Doc_Hawk,
You do not say your model number. I saw model LE40FHDP21TA & looked it at Logitech.com to find it supported with a Harmony remote. You can get a model 200 at Radio Shack for $20 or model 300 -$30 - code free programming

Re: Programming U-Verse remote for TCL tv's?

Thanks for the followup. I have a TCL L40FHDF11TA 40-Inch 1080p 60 Hz LCD HDTV. I am hoping for a remote code that works with the Uverse standard black remote, not a Harmony since that does not solve the problem of having to use two remotes to control the TV and cable.

Re: Programming U-Verse remote for TCL tv's?
I understand that you may have reasons not to go for a Harmony - Many people do. Needing two remotes is not one of them.

The Harmony is designed to handle Many Many multiple devices. Go here to see the list -
http://myremotesetup.com/EasyZapper/New/Main.asp

When I went to look up your model of TLC I could not find the listing. I finally realized it is TCL. LOL

But, I digress -
Harmonyy models 200 and 300 are similar to the u-verse remote - they handle one activity ( watch TV) and multiple devices (including U-verse STB) - 3 devices on the 200 and 4 devices on the 300.

Moving up to more expensive remotes adds more devices and activities.

Activities is a feature you do not see on most remotes.

If you program the watch TV activity, when you activate it, it turns on appropriate devices, sets to appropriate inputs and has an appropriate button map.

Same for programming Watch DVD - but each step is completely different. Appropriate to each activity.

These activities are start up from scratch (off). So, if you were watching TV and wanted to watch a DVD you would power down (all the TV stuff with one button) & hit the watch DVD button to turn all that up.

If it gets stuck because a step failed you press help & it does one step at a time & asks after each step if it is ok.

Get a Harmony. You will love it.

Thank you!  I have a 40" TCL and the RCA 1000 code worked for me as well.

Re: Programming U-Verse remote for TCL tv's?

As another user suggested, I used the Menu -> Help -> Setup function.  As you are, I am sure by now aware, TCL is not listed as one of the manufacturers, but I did a Google search and saw that in 2004 TCL and Thomson collaborated to make one corporation.  My TV had Thomson listed and there were 2 codes, 1000 and 1383.  The first one worked perfectly for me.  Good Luck!

Re: Programming remote for TCL tv's - Try Looking for THOMSON as the MFR instead of TCL

As another user suggested, I used the Menu -> Help -> Setup function.  As you are, I am sure by now aware, TCL is not listed as one of the manufacturers, but I did a Google search and saw that in 2004 TCL and Thomson collaborated at one point, to make one corporation.  I am not sure if every TCL TV has the same manufacturer list, but check for Thomson and try those codes. My TV had Thomson listed and there were 2 codes, 1000 and 1383.  The first one worked perfectly for me.  I hope that helps everyone looking for TCL remote codes!

Back to TCL L32HDF11TA... I tried the codes (above) and it did not work for me.  Does anyone else know a code that would work?

Hi escodude,

 

I was doing research on TCL, and it appears that they sell their product under the RCA name in North America, so hopefully there is an RCA equivalent code for your TV. Here are the following codes that I have found for all RCA TVs for the standard black remote for U-verse:

 

1000,1002,1041,1042,1046,1133,1134,1161,1162,1169,1170,1269,1288,1289,1295,1321,1326,1347,1358,1359,1442

Hi David T,

 

Thanks for your response.  I tried the code and unfortunately none of the codes worked... I went through the list twice just in case I missed press the code.

Here is a recommend for an RCA RCRP05BR 5 remote that it sounds like you can program to work for you. When I was trying to find the reference I saw the Amazon price was $8.80 -

Re: Programming remote for TCL tv's - Try Looking for THOMSON as the MFR instead of TCL

This may be one of the TVs that our remote sadly does not have any programming information on. We definitely try to get as many devices in there as possible, but sadly, it is not possible to get them all. The information aviewer provided seems to be a great low cost solution.

David T & aviewer, 

 

Thanks a bunch for your help.  I'll look into those universal remotes.
