Virgin remote won’t control TV in my TV bed

Spoiler
I have a virgin V6 box in my living room which is working perfectly fine (the remote is able to control the TV itself - volume and on/off). 

My 2nd box is in my bedroom and is connected to my TV but my TV is part of the bed and the bed has its own speakers. 
When I got the box installed by an engineer he was unable to connect the remote to the TV. I have tried multiple times too. Does anyone know why or how I can make it work please? 


Thanks

Hi if your virgin remote is also controlling the TV in your living room, it can't control more than one TV, unless the bedroom TV has the same code as the one its already paired with it is impossible. Regards Micky

Okay fair enough, you need the codes from somewhere for sharp TVs, I seem to remember my Sony had a list of them in the settings, I don't know if sharp have that or can supply a list.

Re: Virgin remote won’t control TV in my TV bed

There's a list of TV codes here VM TV Remote Code List 

This page also explains how to pairing-tv-remote 

You can also try the following.   Using your remote press HOME > Help and Settings > Help > Set up Remote.  Follow instructions there it should give you a series of codes to try.  You can also put 0999 in place of the code and press channel up until the TV turns off, then press ok.

Thanks for responding. Unfortunately I’ve tried all the codes and I set it the automatic codes too where I just keep pressing a button on the remote. The engineer also tried this but nothing worked. 
Thanks

Unfortunately I’ve tried all the codes on the TV. It was very long winded!
