    So, here is the deal. I own a rental property and the local TV/phone/internet company (ATMC) came in and installed all new digital converter boxes. Between then and when I got the property one of the TVs had gotten fried. So I replace the TV with a new one.

    One slight problem, the remote that came with the digital converter box, which is the only remote that can actually change channels, isn't programmed for the new TV. So I looked on motorola's website to find a owner's guide or manual that will explain how to program the remote for a TV. http://www.motorola.com/Video-Solutions/US-EN/Products-and-Services/Video-Consumer-Premise-Equipment/All-Digital-Set-Tops/DTA100_US-EN

    This product page is absolutely useless for my purposes. So I look-up the model number of the converter. I find a lot of useless jargon about how to set this thing up with a TiVo or a SwingPlayer, but NOTHING on how to configure the converter's remote control.

    Can any one either direct me to a page that I can use, or tell me how to configure the remote?

    Or I may have ti theorize that ATMC PURPOSEFULLY put in these God damn digital converters just to tick me off, and decided not to call me back on how to configure the remote control.

    Hi Senryi,
    I too have had problems connecting with the DTA100. In my case they are the inverse of yours as I am attempting to control the DTA100 via my TV's control. While looking for the IR codes for the device I ran into the page that you linked to and also to the one below:
    http://www.mtctech.net/cablevision Documents/DTA User Guide.pdf
    It's a little hard to read but I believe this is what you are looking for.

    Good luck!

    if that solved your problem, good for you!!

    You should mark this thread solved, as it may help another person find it, when searching here at TSG, for a similar problem.
