Have Virgin Media found a TiVo remote control code for Technika TVs yet?

Hi.

 

I've been searching this forum for a compatible code for my Technika TV to be controlled by my TiVo remote and it seems like all the answers to the different posts on this subject have been inconclusive.  I've spent ages using the CLEAR/TV > 0999 > Ch up/down method, but this just leaves me infuriated.

 

Surely by this time Virgin have found a compatible code for us?!  Smiley Sad

 

Thanks.

Hi Graemereaper,

 

Thanks for coming by.

 

At present there isn't any new codes that can be tried.  The codes usually are provided by the Manufacturer of the TV set.  We do try and update this as often as we can.

 

It may be worth contacting Technika to see if they have any additional codes to try.

 

I'm sorry that you haven't found the correct code as of yet.  Keep us posted on how you get on. Smiley Happy

Thanks for your reply, but this has been an issue for quite a while.

It really shouldn't be up to individual customers to contact a manufacturer about TiVo codes. I would think that a massive global organisation such as Virgin would be able to find a member of staff to spend 5 minutes contacting the manufacturer on behalf of the many customers who seem to have this problem.

Also, there is no such company as Technka. It's the name Tesco put on their TVs.

Re: Have Virgin Media found a TiVo remote control code for Technika TVs yet?

I'm going to take a punt here in an effort to help. I don't agree that VM should go chasing TV manufacturers for codes. There are thousands of TVs being produced each year, both branded and OEM and the task would be colossal.  In most cases a common set of codes are at the core of the products and most people find the code they want from the list.

 

However looking at the Tesco support site there is a remote control from Technika which is sold as a universal remote and has the following codes for operation of Technika TVs.

 

You have nothing to lose by trying all of these.

 

1014, 1490, 0214, 0119

 

They are NOT the same as the codes in the TiVo list.

 

Let us know if the punt paid off.

Thanks for that. Unfortunately, after trying those codes, none of them work. I appreciate the effort though.

Oh well. maybe it wouldn't hurt for you to file an enquiry to Tesco Support here. Take you two minutes.

I think "thelion" was genuinely trying to be helpful. UMC UK distribute Technika branded TVs. Look at this list from their web site. If you can locate your TV use the universal remote code (not the Sky code). Who knows.

Thanks. I wasn't trying to be nasty. I genuinely wasn't sure if it was a statement or a question.
