It is not possible to put this remote into learning mode until after you hook it up to the computer.

The ease of this remote is to be able to hook it to the computer to program it. Its simple and easy, all you need is your device model numbers and its good to go.

I have a Sharp tv im trying to program a lg universal remote. I have no codes and can i even do that?

Universal remotes usually have a "Learn" capability.

First you need to figure out how to get into learn mode.

Then you face the Learning Remote IR LED to the current Remote LED. You select the Key or Button one the learning remote that you want to pick up, Then click the similar button on the current remote that is Teaching. The IR signal is picked up by the learner and indicates it has been received correctly.
Then the next key is done

Good Luck

Windows 7 doesn't recognize remote

Do you have the software disc for the remote? If not, go to the Logitech website and download it for your model. You might need drivers from the program to work with Win 7. I'm running mine without any problem.

Sanyo TV Code for Dish remote 21.0 IR/UHF PRO only operates TV Power and Volume Functions.

Hello Witt Thomas,

I can understand the concern and wanting the remote to work the TV Menus. It is possible with our remotes, however it depends on the TV itself. I've seen instances where there are 2 TV's in one house, and 1 will do it, while the other won't.

If you have tried all of the remote codes, and none work, the only other options we have available are to try a powr scan, or teach the remote. This link can provide the steps on how to teach that model of remote control!

Let me know if you have any other questions.

We own the Logitech Harmony 550 universal remote and recently purchased the Insignia NS-L32Q-10A for some reason we can't get the Logitech to work with the Insignia, any suggestions?

Does the device not respond at all?

You can try learning the commands from the original remote to ensure that they are correct.

1. In the software, click 'Learn IR' next to the icon for the device. 2. Go through the list of commands and learn the ones you think you will need by clicking 'Learn'.

The important commands of course are the power commands and input commands. Also channel and volume commands.

Hope that helps :)

Logitech Harmony One remote is controlling 2 TiVOs at once.

Please try learning the some commands from one of the original remotes for thr tivo. If this fixes the problem, i suggest that you learn all commands from that remote.

Launch the Logitech Harmony Remote software and login to your account

1. Click on the Devices tab
2. Click on the Learn IR button for the device you want to learn command(s) to.

**NOTE: When learning new commands, there are three different options available:
-You want the Harmony Remote to learn a single command that is already listed in the software
-You want the Harmony Remote to learn more than one command at a time
-You want the Harmony Remote to learn a new command, which is not listed in the software

You want the Harmony Remote to learn a single command that is already listed in the software
a. Click on the Learn button next to the command you want to learn - Proceed to Step 5

You want the Harmony Remote to learn more than one command at a time
a. select one or more commands by clicking on the check box next to the command(s) you want to learn and then
b. click on the Learn Selected Commands button
c. Proceed to Step 5

You want the Harmony Remote to learn a new command, which is not listed in the software:
a. Scroll down to the button of the page
b. In the Learn a New Command box click on the text MyNewCommand
c. enter the name of the command you would like to teach.
d. Click on the (Learn New Command) button
e. Proceed to Step 5

5. Follow the onscreen directions for learning commands, plugging in your Harmony remote when asked and lining up your original remote to the Harmony as illustrated on the screen.
6. When a command is successfully learned, a check mark will appear next to it. If learning more than one command, the software will then prompt you to learn the next command.
7. The commands that were learned should now be identified as from "Your original remote" and highlighted in turquoise.
8. When you have finished teaching the commands, click Done button to save your changes
9. Click on the Update Remote button to update your remote

If this does not work, try :

To teach commands for your Device that did not work properly in normal mode:

1. Click the Devices button on your home page.
2. Select the Device you wish to learn commands to.
3. Select Learn Infrared Commands.
4. Click Custom. The page will reload.
5. Select the boxes for commands you would like to teach, and click Learn Selected as Raw.

NOTE: When teaching each command, press the button on the original remote for as long as required to control the device. The commands will be learned with the exact format that is sent by the original remote.

If you have any trouble teaching the commands in RAW, complete the following steps:

1. Verify you are pointing the original remote at bottom end of your remote, and are holding the remotes 2-4 inches apart.
2. Minimize the amount of light that could interfere with the learning process by covering the distance between the remotes. Block out sunlight, or turn off the lights.
3. Check that you have installed new batteries in the original remote you are trying to use to learn commands. If the batteries are low, the signal coming from your original remote may be too weak for the remote to detect.
4. Be sure to hold down the button on the original remote for at least 1-2 seconds, otherwise the signal may be too short for the remote to process.
5. If you continue to have trouble teaching the commands, start with the remotes 2 inches apart. Then try again with, slightly increasing the distance each time (2.5 inches, 3 inches, etc).
6. Vary the angle at which the original remote is pointing at the bottom of the remote.
7. Ensure the device's original remote is sending infrared (IR) commands.

NOTE: The original remote is sending RF or UHF commands from the original remote if it will control the device from another room, through a wall).

Logitech harmony 550 volume problem

I would call or email in to logitech and suggest that they copy some of the learned commands for your bose system into your harmony remote account.

The commands they add are learned from other customers and they will only copy the best ones. Give it a shot.
