    Hi there,
    I have MCE 2004 brand new and can't get it to control directtv's Philips set top box with the codes provided. Plus it won't learn the button's either. It just sits and goes through the press button 1, release button 1 circle over and over again.
    It is picking up a signal (light goes on) . Just the codes don't work and it won't learn
    Any ideas???
    Thanks

  2. After having the same problem....

    The Philips box (DSX 5500 and 5540, or something like these) uses a 'toggle' bit, so basicly, if you press a button twice, it will send 2 different commands (which is why it cannot learn) I am working on getting or developing a fix - DirecTV told me just to get a new box, but I dont want to pay to replace my investment (and Philips make MCE remotes) Duh
