Programming LG remote 6710V00151W (with Insignia NS-PDP42)

[qanda]This thread is about the Insignia NS-PDP42. Click here to see full specs[/qanda]I have an Insignia 42" LCD TV, model NS-PDP42. This was an out-of-the-box purchase and had no remote control. After doing the necessary research, I bought a remote unit that is intended for this TV
Not for the life of me can I figure out how to get the remote to work the TV. The TV manual describes how to program DVD’s, VCR’s etc., but not how to pair the TV with a new remote control. The remote control is a LG 6710V00151W. As the link above shows, it’s compatible with the NS-PDP42.

Any suggestions to resolve this annoying issue :doh: will be much appreciated.
