I purchased a BD-HDD Combo but have so far failed to make it

Customer Question

I purchased a BD-HDD Combo but have so far failed to make it operate. My television set is a UMC 40" LCD TV and is not listed in your user manual and therefore I do not know which code to enter.
Can you help please.

Thank you for your question, my name is ***** ***** I look forward to assisting you.
Please note, a rating is only needed when we are finished.
To confirm, the issue is you cannot get the remove from the Combo to also operate your TV, is this correct?
And if so, please give me the full model of the Combo and the TV.

I have checked up on it and the issue is your TV is not a very common model and as such the remote has not programming to work with it, this is why it will not operate it.
Your best solution is to get this universal remote such as this one
This will allow you to control both devices and is very simple to set up
You can see an overview of it here
If you would like any additional information or assistance, please do not hesitate to let me know.
