Your TV is made by Daewoo and is distributed by Daytek. If you call the 800 number on the warranty card you will reach Daytek.
So, what you need to know is this:

#1. A lot of new products won't have a website available. That does not say anything to their quality or the company, just that you've bought a new product and you're one of the first purchasers.

#2. A lot of times if you buy a "no name" TV, you're actually getting components inside the TV that are made by brand name manufacturers. For example, "Prima" uses LG panels in some of their plasma TVs (as well as Daytek). How do I know this? Because I'm the authorized service provider for Daytek, and Prima and quite a few other "no name" TVs, and I've been working on LCD and Plasma since they came out, as well as having worked in the electronics repair industry for over 20 years. I own an Insignia 42" LCD and am quite happy with it.

#3. Most new products that have remote controls will not have codes available for them no matter what brand of universal remote you buy. You have to wait for the people who make the universal remote to have time to make a code for this new brand of TV. This can take up to a year for cable companies, and cheaper universal remotes may never get the code. Expensive universal remotes may be able to have their firmware updated through the internet, so adoption of new codes for new products may happen faster.

#4. Stores like Walmart and Costco are excellent places to buy products like this because they usually have a "no questions asked" return policy if you get the TV back to the store within the stores time limit for returns (some stores are 15 days, some are 30 days, phone the store and ask them). I had purchased a 40" Digistar LCD TV from Walmart what had a flickering problem, I took it back the next day without any problem at all. Then I bought a 42" Insignia Plasma TV from Future Shop that I wasn't happy with. I took it back 3 days later and had no problem at all. As long as you know the stores policy for returns and follow the policy, you won't have any problems either.

#5. Try to avoid buying big-ticket items from smaller stores unless you know their return policies. Some smaller stores will not accept returns on LCD monitors, TVs or plasma TVs but instead require you to handle any problems through the manufacturer.

#6. Best bet it to call Daytek and ask them if they know of any universal remotes that work on that particular model.

Need a smart antenna to go with the Digital TV converter box

Recently I purchased 3 RCA digital TV converter boxes. When I installed it on my 36 inch Toshiba TV, the reception kept going out. We tried adjusting the rabbit ears antenna to no avail. The instruction manual stated that if the reception did not improve with adjusting the antenna, we would need to purchase a "Smart Antenna".
Please tell me what kind (brand names, types, etc )of antenna that is and approximately how much it will cost.

Thank you for any help you can give me on this.

First, you don't need a Smart Antenna, the manual is simply stating that your converter will use one if you have it. Any standard antenna will work, so there is no need for a coupon to pay for a new one, whether indoor or outdoor depending on your location and distance from each channel transmission tower. Since you don't give details of what antenna you are using, I will assume you have rabbit ears for each converter. Rabbit ears are notorious for poor reception and any metal or persons nearby will change the reception quality. I would recommend a roof mounted external antenna with splitters for the 3 converters if you have the option. If not, use an amplified internal antenna and mount it closest to the channel towers you will watch most and as high as possible. If you can find a smart antenna, which is an amplified indoor/outdoor antenna with a control cable for changing the direction of reception, for a decent price, you can use that but keep in mind that to use the control feature you will need one for each converter. Also, check antennaweb.org for information on digital channels in your area and their direction and distance. Antennaweb.org will also tell you if any digital channel in your area uses VHF frequencies. If they don't then a UHF only antenna will work fine.

Programming Your RCA Universal Remote.

The RCA universal remote may already be set up to operate your brand of TV, VCR, or Cable Box. It is pre-programmed with following codes: TV-000, VCR-000, Cable Box-000, and AUX is programmed with VCR code 037. For brands that require programming, there are two ways to program: Using Code Lists or Code Search. Use Code Search if the code lists are not available or if the codes from the lists do not operate a device.

Programming a Device using Code Search: 1- Manually turn ON your device (TV, VCR, Cable Box) 2- Press and "HOLD" CODE SEARCH 3- Press and release the device button you want to set up (TV, VCR, Cable Box) However, if you are using AUX for a device, press and release AUX first and then the device button for the type of device to be programmed (TV, VCR, or Cable). The selected device button will flash once. 4- Release CODE SEARCH. 5- Press OFF/ON repeatedly until the device turns off (you may have to press up to 100 times at a rate of once per second). 6- Once the device turns off, press and release ENTER. 7- With the device on, press any other button. If the device responds, no further programming is required. If the device does not respond, repeat steps 1-6.

Programming a device using the Code Lists: 1- Find codes for each device and brand below. 2- Press and "HOLD" CODE SEARCH. 3- Press and release the TV, VCR or Cable button you want to set up. If programming AUX for a device, press and release AUX first and then the device to be programmed (TV, VCR or Cable). When the selected device button flashes proceed to the next step. 4- Enter the three digit code from the TV, VCR or Cable Box code lists. 5- Release CODE SEARCH. 6- With the device on, press another button, for example CHANNEL UP. If the device responds, no further programming is required. If the device does not respond, repeat steps 1-5 using another code number from the lists.
