Universal Television Remote

Hey guys and girls,

The title is pretty self explanatory, I need to find a Universal remote that supports a Fluid Television. I know it is not a popular brand and it is really hard to find any information on it, I don't know what the frequency of the stock remote is so if any one has any idea's on it, I could really use the advice!

Thanks!

you could find out HERE if there are codes for your TV brand at all...then you'd have to browse the remote control manufacturers sites to find a model that supports your tv.

Sorry, never heard of it. I'm afraid, if it's not popular enough, nobody bothers to include its codes into their program. So all you could do, would be try a programmable remote which supports a code search (basically they try out all codes they can send...but chances are rather slim. You might even want to contact circuit city for a replacement.

Sorry I can't be of more help.

I don't see any information on that one so its hard to pin point if that is true or not.

Pick one. If it isn't already in the database (yes a computer and internet connection are required for setting them up) it doesn't take much to program/configure it yourself,

Harmony's are quite expensive I would be better off buying a new television for those prices.
