    On my Philips TV remote, the power button only switches the TV OFF, not ON. To switch it on, I have to press "Channel up" or "Channel down".

    According to the instruction manual, this is how its supposed to work. But I'd really like to be able to switch it on and off using the same button on my learning remote.

    Is there an IR code which will switch the TV both on and off? Or am I stuck with two separate buttons?

    (The TV is a Philips 32PW6332 widescreen).

    If it's a 2002 model or newer, try this.

    Thanks for that. Unfortunately my tv is an older model.

    I think the newer ones have a combined on/off button, and your attachment lists the discrete codes. The problem I have is that I've only got the discrete buttons - I need a combined code!

    Thanks anyway,

    Chris

    If you're using a JP1 compatible remote, you can create a "virtual" ON/OFF button using a special protocol called "ToadTog". With this, the remote will keep track of whether the TV is already ON or OFF and send the appropiate command when you press the POWER button. And even if the remote and TV get out of sync, it will only take 2 presses of the POWER button to bring them back in sync.
