Code Number for Remote Programming

The remote control on this dvd broke and I would like to use the remote control of my cable box (Scientific Atlanta Model: Explorer 8300HD)to control it but I am unable to find the proper code to program the cable box remote. Any idea which other dvd code may work? Second option: Any other universal remote which may have the proper code capability? Thanks!!! Ismael

Here is the link for the 8300 user manual if you need it; here is manual for the dvd player Not sure but try 438 or 445 as a code for your dvd, 445 most likely to work. (here is the link i got that from); if this doesn't work then find a universal remote that you can get hold of easily near you and tell us the model number, we could probably tell you if it will be compatible with both machines and what the codes are. Hope this helps :)

Cable box remote doesn't work when tv is turned on.

I am having this same problem with our Mitsubishi LCD Flat Panel TV, Model LT-46246 ans our Scientific Atlanta remote cable box, same model as yours. We cannot use the remote at all to change the channel. I called Mitsubishi and they said they have never heard of this. I find this incredibly hard to believe. Time Warner, our cable provider says that it is not the box because it works when not hooked up to the TV. What a pain. I would love to hear if anyone else is having this problem or has a fix for it.

Code For Scientific Atlanta Explorer 1840 Cable Box

Try this first:

1. Press and hold SELECT and CBL until all mode keys blink twice.
2. Press 9 7 7. All mode keys blink three times. Then, after a few seconds the CBL key
blinks twice.

This put's the remote back to default. If you need more help let me know.

Set top box and remote control

My remote wasn't working until I programmed it to work with itself ... (how odd it wasn't done already).

"CBL" button and ""OK/SEL" held down simulataneously for 3 seconds ... then "001" for the Scientific Atlanta. If the unit turns off, you're in business.
