Good day all,
This is my first time posting on the forum. In fact I registered just to let people know of a discovery I've made.
Last month I purchased a Roku Streaming Stick +, took it home, set it up with my RCA HD TV and started viewing. The only issue I came across was with registering the Stick's TV power/volume control feature. For some strange reason, the stick's remote could not recognize my television. Despite being a well-known brand like RCA. I decided to leave it because it really wasn't a great inconvenience to use two remotes. That is until last night it occurred to me, that oftentimes television manufacturers make multiple brands of televisions in a single factory, and just use various branding licenses.
So a quick Google took me to this Consumer Reports link that does some breaking down of just who owns what in the HDTV market. See below.
Reading on, I saw a handy chart at the bottom that simplifies things a bit. Notice it states that the brand ProScan is owned as a budget arm of RCA. All it took was one attempt to get the remote to pair to a ProScan TV rather than an RCA TV and I was set. Works perfectly.
So hopefully this little guide from CR can help you to find the sub-brand of TV associated with your TV's manufacturer. It helped me to whittle down the amount of remotes sitting on the coffee table.
