Tip & How-To about Televison & Video
A simple method I've developed to keep my remote codes handy for my universal remotes is this:
- Write the name of the device and it's code as small as possible on a piece of paper. (Or if your handwriting isn't so good print it out in a small but legible font.) Like so:
TV - 1234
VCR - 5678
DVD - 9876
- Take this small piece of paper (fold if necessary) and put it inside the battery compartment of the remote. Now if for some reason your remote should forget it's programming due to bad or replacement batteries, you've got all the codes right there to reprogram the remote instead of having to hunt down the code book which you can never find.

Direct Code Entry lets you enter a code from the accompanying
code list for your brand of device. It's not as easy as the other
methods, but it's potentially the fastest method
TIP: Each device key is associated with a type of device-
the TV is preset to search for TVs, SAT•CBL•DTC for satellite
receivers, cable boxes or digital TV converters, DVD•VCR
for DVD players, and DVR•AUX for DVRs. To program a
device key for a different type of device, see the Changing a
Key's Device Type section.
1. Manually turn on the device you
want to contro
2. Find the Code List that came with
the remote. Locate the section for
the type of device you're trying to
program, and find your brand in
that section. Circle the codes for
your brand and keep them handy.
3. Press and hold the device key you want to program (the
POWER key illuminates).
While you're holding down the device key, use your other
hand enter the first five-digit code for your brand in the
code list (the POWER key turns off after the first digit).
4. When you've finished entering
the five-digit code, keep holding
down the device key and look at
the POWER key.
Is the POWER key
YES: You're done! You've programmed this device key.
NO, it blinked four times and turned off: You have
either entered a code number that is not in the code lists
or missed a step in the code entry procedure. Try step 3
Test the remote with the device to make sure the device
key is programmed with the correct code for maximum
functionality. If some features don't work, try a different code
in the list.
Remember to enter the code for future reference in the box
provided in the Code Retrieval section of this manual.
If your brand isn't listed in the code list, use one of the Code
Search methods to program the remote control. (Refer to the
Auto and Manual Code Search methods.)
If you release the device key any time during the Direct Code
Entry procedure, the POWER key blinks four times, and the
process is exited. The last programmed code under the
device key is retained
