A replacement SD remote (IRC 600) would be cheaper than a Harmony. Around $40 new, but may be cheaper if you shop around or are willing to get used.

Shaw Direct Remote trying to use with a ONN ROKU TV

Hi everyone, wonder if anyone else has ran into this, I bought an ONN ROKU TV at Walmart (40") and I have tried to get my Shaw Direct TV remote to control it but after trying all the Shaw Direct directions still can't get it to operate it. I did get tne access code by the "checking the codes" method, got the 5 digits put them in...no go.

So I am at a loss on what to do or if it's even possible to marry up an ONN ROKU TV to a Shaw Direct Remote.

However I also have a Hisense Roku TV and I did get my Shaw Direct Remote to operate it as it's codes are in the Shaw Direct's Manufacturer's Codes Manual. Seems odd that both being Roku TVs that the ONN can not be programmed....at least by me.

Anyone's help much appreciated, the reason I am trying to do this is to get down to one remote as the ONN remote can not change Shaw Direct channels and its small and not very user friendly.
Thanks for any possible help...even if you know the ONN can't be programmed just let me know.

It's not the Roku that's having the problem; it's the TV manufacturer's access. The Shaw boxes have been notorious for decades for concealing their proprietary codes, and generally the one sure way to get them is to use a learning remote.

I have been playing with remotes and made a device that decodes the raw IR data from a remote.


I found that, for my TCL Roku TV, the included Roku remote transmits different data than the TCL code I programmed into the Shaw Direct remote, despite fully controlling the TV, including navigating the Roku menus and apps.

Which code did you use for your Shaw Direct remote?

My remote manual doesn't list any TCL devices (quite an old remote). I managed to find the code by using the "scanning" feature of the remote to try all of the codes until one matched.
