The alternate solutions is to buy a universal remote with a 'learn' function. These tend to be a bit more expensive than cheapest universal remotes, however they have the ability to 'learn' codes from an existing remote if the none of the built in codes work. this allows you to construct a remote to your 'liking', and even mix and match commands from various devices.
Sylvania tends to be a problem, because it is simply a brand name. Over the past 20 years, the Sylvania Brand has probably been owned/used by at least half a dozen companies, and even the current owner (Osram) seems to 'rent' the name out for consumer electronics products. Originally it was part of General Telephone and Electronics (GTE), then it became part of Philips, Osram now owns it, but if it isn't somehow related to a light bulb, it probably is the Sylvania name being 'leased out'. At the moment Sylvania Consumer Electronics are actually made by Funai, a Japanese Company.
So the other thing to do is try the codes for Funai on the Verizon remote and see if any of them work.
