The remote will have a DASH or DOT key to let you enter the digital channel numbers directly,
as in: for digital channel 53.2, you'd enter "5" "3" DASH "2"

To program digital channels into a FAVORITEs list, you'd have to provide the Mfr/model
of the remote control itself...

I want to save the channels and turn my antenna to another direction and scan I loose the channels that I had can I save them some how?


The only way that I solve this issue is to write down the channels available from one direction on paper. Do the scan in the second direction. Return the antenna to the first direction and then manually add the rest of the channels. Depending on the TV, you either type in the channel number with the remote control or find a Add Channel option in the TV Channel sub-menu.

At least with my TV that doesn't have an Add Channel option in the Channel section, going to a digital channel with the remote doesn't store the channel number if the signal isn't strong enough for the tuner to resolve. Analog channels can be added when the signal is poor.

If you know all of the local channels in each direction from AntennaWeb ( http://www.antennaweb.org ) or TvFool
( http://www.tvfool.com ), you can use that documentation to add the channels at each antenna direction.

I hope this helps. If you use an electronic antenna rotor with a remote control, you may be able to program turning the antenna automatically when you change the channel. Check the documentation for the device to program this.

(Note: on my TV that adds channels only when I type in the channel number, recorded digital channels can disappear from the list if if I visit a channel with poor signal strength. Until the antenna is directed towards that transmitter, I can't add the channel back into the list.)

Why does the channel up or down sometimes not work?


It sounds to me like you have a fault in the tuner circuit. I suggest you take it on for service.

I am trying to program the RCA ColorTrak Plus TV to my satellite receiver and I get nothing but snow


You will need to get a "regular" Universal remote and program it for that particular model of TV. You will need to access the on screen setup menu for the TV and then have it scan the channels. Make sure your DTV box is on and connected with the coaxial cable. If the "TV Input" button on your DTV remote works and you can get it onto the Video Channel, You can connect your DTV receiver with the RCA Cables (Red, White and Yellow) and get your picture that way. If you access the on screen menu, you will need to scan for Analog and Digital channels as the receiver transmits in Analog. hope this helps.

How do you program a Dish Network Remote to control a DirecTV receiver?


  • 1 Turn on the electronic device for which you'll be using your remote control. You will have to do this manually by pressing the "On/Off" button on the device.
  • 2 Locate either the "Code Search" or "Setup" button on your remote control. Which one you have will depend on the remote control.
  • 3 Hold that button for anywhere between five and 10 seconds. The light on your remote should then turn on. Depending on your remote, the light will either blink or remain on after you release the button.
  • 4 Press the corresponding button on your remote for your device that you are programming. In other words, if you want to program your remote to your television, you would press the "TV" button.
  • 5 Use the numbers on your remote to enter the three- or four-digit code for that particular device. The codes for your remote control will be found in the manual. Don't worry if you have lost the manual. You can find codes for practically every remote control on the market on the Internet. Visit the website of the manufacturer of the electronic device (TV, DVD player, among others) or log onto the "Universal Remote Control Codes" website. Once you have entered the code using the remote, you should notice that the light on your remote has turned off.
  • 6 Point your remote towards the device and attempt to turn the device off. If you can do so, you have programmed your remote correctly.
Programming Without Remote Control Codes
  • 1 Repeat Steps 1 through 4 found in Section 1.
  • 2 Begin pressing the "Up" channel button found on your remote. You will probably have to do this a few hundred times (or anywhere between five and 10 minutes). Once the channel changes, your remote will be programmed. Turn the device on and off using your remote to finish programming.
  • 3 Use the "Power" button if the channel button did not program your remote control. Again, you will probably have to press the "Power" button a few hundred times. Once the device that you are programming your remote to has turned off, you will know that you have programmed the remote control correctly.

Can i access my digital channels on cabel without a box? I dont want to have to type in sub numbers, can my remote be programed for that?


Local digital channels should be available from the cable TV line from the wall. Your TV has to have a digital tuner. You can do a channel set-up scan with the TV. Then do channel up and down or channel # access to get to desired channel.

I am trying to set up the "favorite channels" function on my harmony 880 remote and I keep getting an error message that the channel numbers are not valid. On my TV, for example, NBC is 05-1 (that's what I...


I have seen channel designations like this when using a satellite TV provider. From what I know (which is not a lot, I'm afraid) is that some affiliates offer analog and digital and digital sub channels so an example would be:

05 (main analog channel)
05-1 'digital' (depending on the receiver)
05-2 'digital sub channel'
05-3 'digital sub channel'
etc

So, you may want to try just putting in the main channel '05' when using the Logitech software to program your favorites. Below is a link to a good post on the Logitech forum that tells how to program your favorites. Hope this helps!
