Re: jumbo universal remote

I found that on the back of the 2205 it said that the unit was made by Funai. I looked in the Innovage book and found that the codes for Funai DVD are 231 and 233. 233 worked on mine. Good luck.

How to reprogram a universal remote control?

    • 1 Find the brand of the universal remote you own on Internet sites like (see Resources below).
    • 2 Click on your universal remote brand on the website to find the code list for that remote.
    • 3 Check to see if your remote is preprogrammed to operate your TV, VCR, or Cable Box using the following codes: TV - 000, VCR - 000, Cable Box - 000, AUX - use VCR code 037.
    • 4 Manually turn on your device. Hold down the "Code Search" button on your remote, then press and release the device button you want to set up until it flashes.
    • 5 Push the power button repeatedly until the device turns off, then hit "Enter."
    • 6 Press any other button while the device is on to see if the device responds. If it does, you don't need to do any other programming. If it doesn't, repeat steps 4-6.

Need code number

I tried a Panasonic 4-unit universal remote (about $8 at Wal-Mart), and the code that works for it (sort of) is 0998. I say "sort of," because on the DVD side, you can only advance forward and backward from one chapter to the next (you can't "scan") and on the VCR side, you can't fast forward or rewind at all. So I'm returning the remote and looking for a "real" Toshiba D-VR610 remote. But I suppose this universal remote could be better than nothing, at least for the DVD functions.
