Just bought a RCA 50 inch LED model RLDED5099-UHD and can not program the Rogers 1056B03 remote control to turn off/on TV and sync with HD box. Tried both auto scan and manual methods with negative results. Anyone have any suggestions.

I know that "RCA" TVs can't always be pogrammed for the DTA50 remote because they're not RCA anymore, just various Chinese manufacturers usin the name. Mave you looked here?
I know it's a pain, but I have to use both the Rogers remote and the TV remote on a couple of my TVs to get all the functions. Even on my Samsung Smart TV I have to use the Samsung remote to switch from TV speakers to external and of course all the smart features. About the only way around this could be one of those Harmony universal remotes that can cost as much as a TV.
You can get a basic level Harmony remote (still fully programmable and updateable) on Amazon for $45.
Curtis makes my RCA and I'll give them a call or drop by their offices, which are nearby, and see if they can help. Failing that I'll try the Harmony. I have a Sony home theatre system that will not program as well and perhaps the Harmony remote will solve my problems. Thanks.
The harmoney.. from the basic or the highest.. usually have alot more luck. As they dont store all the codes, etc.. when you set up the programming via the PC, it has a full database (usually more extensive it seems) and downloads the specific codes it needs.
As well, you can set up programming MACROs on it.
You can do a task of 'watch bluray' and set it up.. so it does stuff in steps.
Turn on surround sound
Change to input X on the surround sound
Even set volume to a specific level.
Turn on bluray
Turn on TV
Then at those points.. you can often set up then WHAT is being controled primarily at that time.. but even have it split up.
So when its done that macro... it ends with the BLURAY under control so you can do your menus, etc.. but the volume control, controls the surround sound.
