Sentry really big universal remote

Is it possible to program my new Sentry "Really Big Universal Remote" to our Direct TV satellite? The 3-digit codes given in the directions do not seem to work. I called Direct TV and got their 4-digit codes, but cannot get them to work either...maybe I'm using incorrect process to enter the 4-digit codes. Any suggestions?

Programming Universal Remote with RCA Sound System

You don't say whether you tried using the code search function to find something that works. As for the lack of a "sound system" button, you should be able to select any button other than TV to find a code.

You have to program the remote control to synchronize with TV. If you wish to get moredetails; codes, three digits, four digits or five digit ones, check this link. Pull up older posts there. Setup code list and setup instructions to some popular model remote controls are given. Select the 'Timeslide' option from the drop-down list by the 'Sidebar' at the display window. It will make search easy.

Need 3 digit code(s)

Hi JB,
Here is an upto date list from sentry who manufacture your remote:
RMC10 Code List
This is a PDF file and should open automatically.
For the Toshiba TV code list you will need page 8.
But if none of the codes work, there are instructions on how to get the remote to search for a code on pages 1 and 2.

Sentry really big universal remote

Ya it does work with the codes given.. Just make sure you are close to the tv or product you are wanting to program -- other equipment can interfer ... hold search code button down until it stays on then press tv/sat or what ever u want to program then put in the code then power button, item should shut off-- if it doesn't work then try the next code for the brand of tv/sat/vcr u have.. here is the web site with the manual on it..3 different models of this remote just select the one u have from the list on the left.

Remote codes for sentry rmc10 really big universal remote

This is the way to enter any device using the rmc10 really big universal control.

1. Turn the device one that you want to program. (The tv, dvd, vcr, etc.)
2. Press and hold the CODE SEARCH button until the red light remains lit.
3. Press and hold the device you want to find (example TV, VCR etc.) Release it quickly. It wil blink once.
4. Continuly press the CH+ button until the device turns off. This may take a lot of time and many clicks.
5. Once the device turns off, press the MUTE button. This stores the code.
6. Press the ON/OFF button and the device should come on.

There you have it! Save this information so you will have it next time.
