I have the Atlas DVR 1055 remote (for my motorola cable box) and I just got a new tv, the LG LN57.

At the top of the Atlas remote, you can choose AUX, DVD, AUD, TV, and CBL.

I want to leave it in CBL all the time, and code it so that some of the buttons control the new TV.

So, the little red C button I want to turn the LG tv on and off.
And I want Vol+, Vol- and Mute to all control the volume on the tv (not on the cable box).

Years ago I already did this for my previous Samsung TV, but I just tried to do it for the LG and it's not working (possibly because I am missing a step).

I tried doing this and coding the mute button to 00009, a code I got from here, but it didn't work.

Two possible problems, I'm doing it wrong or missed a step, and/or I don't have the correct codes for this LG LN57.

thanks

Usually, people use the Volume Punch Through feature to control the TV's volume.  In short:
Setup until 2 blinks-993 (2 blinks)--Press TV.

Regarding reassigning buttons with the 994 Command, it is important to distinguish between an OBC (also called function) number and an EFC.  The spreadsheet you've linked to lists OBCs for many LG TV functions.  UEI (the maker of Atlas and many other remotes) wanted to allow people to customize their remotes but without letting other companies copy their remote database.  So they chose to encode the OBCs.  You need to convert OBCs into EFCs before manually programming the remote.   The JP1 community was able to decipher the EFCs, but the algorithm isn't easily done mentally.  The straightforward process is to use RemoteMaster and one of the many LG upgrades.  Or you may be able to use the Lookup Tool to find common EFCS.

So the OBC for Mute is 9, but the corresponding EFC is 00057, assuming the remote is using one of the standard LG setup codes.
Power is 00053.

Ah ok, thanks!!

I really should have written down how I did it back on the Samsung.

Here's how I did it now:

first I did 991 to set the remote to my new tv. The instructions for Newer Remotes that use 5 digit setup codes didn't work. The instructions for 4 digit did work.

then I did 993 to do volume punch through, but it only appears to have worked for Vol+ and Vol-, not mute.


I tried those mute and power codes with 994, but they didn't work. I'm guessing this tv uses 4 digit codes. I don't really know what I'm looking at in this code lookup thing :|

Ah... I was trying to do Program Effective Function Code (EFC) for a single device using those mute and power codes you said (00057 and 00053), and it wasn't working.

But, I just realized that since I set the TV part of the remote to my new tv using 991, and the power and mute buttons work there (when I press TV on the remote), what I should be trying to do is Copy one key to another device.
...
Ok yeah, I used that just now and was able to copy the mute button over. But the power button won't copy over to the "C" button (it's a little red button with a C on it). I assume that's because the power button is like a "special" button that you can't copy that way.

So I'm going to try to program the TV C button to also be a power button (00053), and then try to copy that C button over to CBL

...yup, got 00053 onto the C button for TV

...But it won't copy over. Neither the power button, nor the new power button I made will copy over. Instead of 2 blinks at the end of the process, I just get 1 solid light.
...
Ok, so now I tried Assign Effective Function Code (EFC) from another device with 00053 and it worked! woot!

Now I want to add some smart tv buttons, but I don't know what the codes are for it.

The buttons I need are from the Magic Remote:

Up, Down, Left, Right, OK (middle click on roller), Back, and Smart. And Pause for netflix...


Can the Atlas "learn" the codes by pressing some code and then pointing the Magic remote at it and pressing the desired button? I don't know how to do that...
