I need to program my Verizon STB remote to control the volume and On/Off of a Toshiba Regza 42rv530u. There are 42 possible remote control codes listed for Toshiba TVs. I called Toshiba and they said I have to call Verizon for the code (?!). (See email response below.)
Does anyone know which code or codes below will work with a Toshiba Regza 42rv530u?
Codes listed in Verizon remote manual.
0087, 0181, 0183, 0677, 0859, 0872, 1172, 1183, 1283, 1292, 1383, 1683, 1731, 3015, 3022, 3023, 3051, 3052, 3053, 3055, 3059, 3062, 3066, 3072, 3074, 3078, 3080, 3087, 3089, 3093, 3147, 3167, 3168, 3169, 3171, 3173, 3182, 3187, 3188, 3207, 3214, 3220
Email response from Toshiba, same a telephone conversation.
"Thanks for writing!
We appreciate your interest in Toshiba.
Regrettably, we do not have any information about what code number or even whether or not a universal remote will work one of our products. That is, we do not know if the frequency on which our products operate will "translate" into a code number in another brand's remote or an after-market universal remote. Our remotes are pre-programmed at the factory to work our products automatically, so there is no "code number" by which they operate or need to be set up.
Other remotes will have codes for different brands of products. In the remote's instructions, if "Toshiba" is listed under the product that you're trying to control, then the codes given for Toshiba would each need to be checked in order to see which, if any, are the frequency to which your particular product will respond. If there is no response, then I recommend you contact the manufacturer of the remote to see if they have another code that will work or a search method to find a working code.
Please write back if I can assist you further."

My suggestion would be to spend 10 minutes of your day and try the codes until you find the one that works. Sure beats the 20 minutes you probably spent typing that post and calling Toshiba.

Use the "auto search" feature of the remote to see get the code.
In the manual, it's under "WHAT IF NONE OF THE CODES WORKED"
Here's a summary:
program the TV, use code 922
then Press Fast forward.
Keep pressing fast forward until your tv turns off (go slow, if you go to fast you can use rewind to go back a code).
when it turns off, the remote found the code, press OK to save it.
