1Remove the battery cover and insert new batteries into the remote. Press the "Power" button on the television to turn it on.
Press the "PRM" button that is in the lower left corner of the remote control. You should see the signal indicator light come on.
Click the DTA800 TV Codes link in the resource section to view a list of program codes for the converter box. Enter the 3-digit code for your television by pressing the number keys on the keypad. Press the "OK" button when finished. You should see the indicator light turn off.
Point the remote at the television and press the volume keys on the remote control. If the volume for the television changes, the remote has been programmed successfully.
Enter another 3-digit code for your television if the first code fails to program the remote
The RCA Universal Remote has 17 different codes for Emerson televisions. These codes are 011, 026, 027, 028, 029, 030, 031, 032, 037, 042, 053, 064 065, 067, 075, 076 and 079. There are 18 different Emerson VCR codes. These codes are 008, 009, 010, 013, 015, 020, 023, 027, 034, 041, 042, 047, 057, 062, 065, 067, 068 and 070. There are no codes for Emerson cable boxes.
You have a limited number of TV brands that can be controlled by this remote as DTV converter boxes are just basic function devices. If your TV is not on the list, then it cannot be controlled. If your TV brand is on the list, look for the 3 digit codes next to your TV brand. You may have to try all the codes if one does not work. You should have the list on a separate leaflet that came with your converter box. Press PGM on the remote. Enter the 3 digit code with the number keys. Press OK. Test by pressing the volume button and see if it works. If not try another code next to your TV brand from the list. If you lost the leaflet then here is a link online to see this information: http://www.1800customersupport.com/productdocuments/DTA800_code.pdf
I'm assuming you have the DTA800 box.
If it's an newer Zenith TV(LCD/PLASMA/DLP) it might be that the RC300 does not have the codes for the newer models, but if it's a picture tube TV(CRT) and the zenith codes given to you in the code list are not working try the code search procedure(scans and transmits all codes one at a time)you will have to turn your TV on to continue with this procedure. If you don't have a users manual you can download one from rca.com/accessories/universalremotes. You can also try the codes listed for LG, they could work.
