Hi. I have the Chamberlin openers (2 of them). I also have remotes, and a keypad mounted outside. Finally, I have homelink in every one of (3 of them) my cars.Here's the problem I have. I can either get the keypad to work, or my remote transmitters to work, but not both of them. It seems that when I program the touch pad, my remote stops working, but the touchpad works fine. If I program the remote (and subsequently the homelink in the cars), then the remotes and homelink transmitters work, but not the touch pad. Please help!!!

Download the owners manual in PDF, and search for homelink. The instructions are somewhat long, so this would be an easier route.

The outline is train a remote to the visor ( so the homelink gets the base code ) and then train the button on the homelink to the opener ( the visor has a different shared code, so it is a 2 step process ).
Takes about 5 min to do. Also make sure you do not have more than 6 remotes on the door you are programming, else it will push the 1st one off ( usually the case with Chamberlin, your mfgr could be more or less )
Hope this a Homelink. Put new batt in garage door remote. Park outside garage. #(1) Press & hold 2 outer buttons on Homelink. Release ONLY after light starts to flash. Don't hold for longer than 30 sec. Don't repeat to program the other 2. #(2) Hold the remote 3 inches from Homelink. #(3) Press & hold the Homelink buttom & the remote button at the same time. #(4)The Homelink will begin to flash slowly then rapidly. After the Homelink flashes rapidly release the buttoms. #(5) Press the just trained Homelink button if the light stays on constantly, programming is complete..... To program the other 2 links DO NOT REPEAT #1
You must have an older vehicle or the homelink has reverted to an earlier technology and you will have exactly the situation you describe. You will just have to use the remotes that came with the opener.
The only way to program Homelink without a garage door opener remote is if you have a keypad that allows access to your garage. I tried EVERYTHING and then realized I had the keypad which is wireless; I simply unscrewed the battery operated keypad from its location and held it 1"-3" from the Homelink buttons in my car. I then punched in my code and held the enter button on the keypad at the same time as the Homelink button I wished to program. It worked flawlessly. Good Luck!!!!
Yes. But you need a remote transmitter that is programmed to open the Lift Master. Then you just follow the instructions in your home link and it should work.
Press the homelink outside 2 button at the same time and hold till fast blinking (all erased). Then press homelink button1 and hold while aiming the transmitter (2 inches away) and pressing appropriate button on the remote. Continue to hold both till fast flashing seed on the homelink. Release both. Then hold the next button on the homelink you want to program, aiming the remote again, and pressing and holding the appropriate button on the remote, until fast flashing, and then releasing again, ......
Both the older genie and a newer chamberlain (3-4 yrs old) both run on 390Mhz frequency. sounds like you will have to change your receivers on both operators (365LM 315Mhz) then get 3 button remote so you can program both doors on one remote.
