Getting Started-Overview
Activating Component Commands –
Simple, Easy, Intuitive
Once you’ve programmed
RF30 for your Components,
all you have to do to operate a specific Component is
first, press the MAIN button.
This will display Page 1 of
the MAIN menu on the LCD
touch screen. Page 1 of the
MAIN menu displays seven
Components, plus FAV
(Favorite Channel). Then,
simply select the
Component you want to
operate by pressing the
desired Component display
button on the LCD Touch
Screen. As an example, if
you press the TV display
button, the display label at
the top of the screen will
change from MAIN to TV,
and all the buttons on RF30
will work your TV. To oper-ate
another Component,
simply press the MAIN
button again to return to
Page 1 of the MAIN menu
and select the next
Component you want to
operate.
If you don’t see the
Component you want to
control on Page 1 of the
MAIN menu, just use the
PAGE ( ) ( ) display buttons
at the bottom of the screen
to bring up Page 2 of the
MAIN menu which displays
an additional eight
Components.

Basic Setup - Overview
Pre-Programmed Code Method
Overview &
Pre-Programmed Code Method
7
There are two ways to program the RF30:
• The Pre-Programmed Code Method
• The Learning Method
The Pre-Programmed Code Method allows you to set up
all the buttons at once, so it’s the fastest and easiest of
the two methods. The Learning Method allows you to
transfer functions from other remotes (old or new), one
button at a time.
STEP 1:
STEP 2:
STEP 3:
The pre-programmed 3-digit
codes are found in the back of
this Manual on page 44. The
codes are listed by Component
category (i.e., TV, VCR, DVD,
etc.), then by brand name. For
instance, if you want to locate
a code for a Sony TV, first
locate the TV category, and
then look for the Sony brand.
Now, turn on the Component
you want to program... let’s say
your TV to start. Look up your
TV’s manufacturer setup code
from your reference list.
Press and hold the MAIN and ENT
(Enter) buttons at the same time
for approximately 3 seconds, until
the word “SETUP” is displayed at
the top of the LCD touch screen.
This signals that you are now in
setup mode.
Once you have located the
3-digit code (or in some cases,
several code numbers) for the
Component that you want to
operate with your RF30, write
them ALL down on a piece of
note paper. It’s important that
you write down all the codes
because only one code is going
to work for you.
IMPORTANT:
You now have 30 seconds to perform
the next step while you are in SETUP
mode. If you don’t press a button
within 30 seconds, SETUP will disappear from the screen, signaling that
you have exited setup mode and you
will need to start over.

STEP 4:
Press the P-PRO button to select
the Pre-Programmed Method.
The screen will then display the
seven Components (and FAV) on
Page 1 of the MAIN menu.
To display Page 2 of the MAIN
menu that lists an additional
eight Components, simply press
the ( or ) Page buttons at the
bottom of the screen.
DEVICES
STEP 6:
Press the Component button
you want to program. For
example: If you want to setup
the TV Component button,
press the TV Component button. The display at the bottom
of the LCD screen will flash
“FROM - TABLE”.
In this step you verify the type
of component you plan to
operate with this component
button. For example: If you plan
to operate the TV component
with the TV button, simply press
the TV button once again.
However, if for example you are
setting up AUX to operate a
second DVD Player, you would
first need to press AUX in Step
5, and then DVD in Step 6.

STEP 5:
NOTE:
If the Component fails to turn off after you have entered
all the code numbers listed for your brand, you can scan
through all the other code numbers that are pre-loaded
into the RF30 for that Component (in this case TV) by
using the UP or DOWN buttons on the screen. (There is
a chance that your Component was actually manufactured
by another brand.) However, most of the code tables are
so large that it is usually faster to use the Learning Method
on Page 15.
STEP 7:
STEP 8:
Point the RF30 toward the
Component you want to
program, (in this example, TV),
and punch in the 3-digit code
that you wrote down for that
specific Component. Use the
Number buttons 0-9 on the
remote to punch in the code.
If the 3-digit code number that
you just punched in is correct,
the Component will turn off. If
the Component does not turn
off, continue entering code
numbers from your list until the
Component turns off. Some
brands have several possible
code numbers.
When the Component turns off,
press the ON button to turn the
Component back on. Now you
can test the Volume and
Channel buttons (for TV), or
PLAY and STOP (for VCR and
DVD) to make sure they all
work. If any of the buttons do
not work properly, you need to
UP & DOWN
BUTTONS
find a new correct code. For
example, maybe your Sony TV
turned off with code number 147,
but the volume controls did not
work properly. If this is the case,
try the next code number listed
for that Component until you find
a perfect match.

Learning Method
The RF30 can actually ‘learn’ commands from other remote
controls (old or new), one-button-at-a-time, so it will never
become obsolete. RF30 is the last remote you’ll ever need!
Just follow these simple steps:
STEP 1:
STEP 3:
STEP 4:
Line-up the RF30 with the other
remote control, head-to-head,
one or two inches apart.
Press the LEARN button on the
LCD screen. The top of the
screen will change to “LEARN”
and display the seven
Components (and FAV) from
Page 1 of the MAIN menu.
Select the Component you want
to teach commands to by
pressing that Component button
on the LCD screen (in this
example, TV). The top of the
screen will change to “TV”.
STEP 2:
On the RF30, press and hold the
MAIN and ENT (Enter) buttons
at the same time for approximately three seconds, until the
word “SETUP” is displayed at
the top of the LCD touch screen.
This signals you are now in
SETUP mode.
To display Page 2 of the MAIN
menu that lists an additional
eight Components, simply press
the ( or ) Page buttons at the
bottom of the screen.
NOTE: If you want to teach any command to a Component button, press the
Component button once the top of the
screen displays “MAIN”, by pressing the
PAGE button. The top of the screen will
change to "READY". Then go to STEP 6.
IMPORTANT:
You now have 30 seconds to perform
the next step while you are in SETUP
mode. If you don’t press a button
within 30 seconds, SETUP will disappear from the screen, signaling that
you have exited setup mode and you
will need to start over.

Press any button on the RF30
that you want to teach a
command to. The top of the
screen will change to "READY"
and the bottom of the screen will
display the button you pressed.
Press and hold the button on the
other remote control that you
want to ‘teach’ to the RF30 until
the LCD display on the RF30
changes to either “GOOD” or
“FAILD”. If the “GOOD” label
appears on top of the display
and “SAVED” flashes on the bottom, you were successful. If
the “FAILD” label appears on
top of the display, try ‘teaching’
the same button to the RF30
once again by repeating STEPS
5 and 6.
Now, continue to teach the RF30
any other commands from your
old remotes by repeating STEPS
4 through 6 (to go back to STEP
4, simply press MAIN once).
Once you have completed
teaching all the button
commands to the RF30, return to
normal operation by pressing the
MAIN button twice.
Test all your new commands. If
any of them don’t work, try the
Learning Method again, following these suggestions:
• Move to another room. Plasma
TVs, sunlight, halogen or quartz
lighting can interfere with the
learning process.
• Even though the old remote
seems to be working fine, put in
fresh alkaline batteries.
• Gradually vary the distance
between the remote controls.
Some additional Information
regarding the Learning Process:
• Learned functions override any
existing pre-programmed
functions on the remote control.
• All buttons can be learned
except for the PAGE, MAIN and
LIGHT buttons.
• Learned functions are
automatically erased when a
new function is learned on the
same button.
• Learned functions are retained
even after a different Setup
Code Number is programmed
into the remote.
• To return to an original preprogrammed function, a learned
function must be erased.

NOTE: If you don’t see the display button
you would like to teach on the LCD
screen, use the ( or ) PAGE buttons at
the bottom of the screen.The only
buttons you can’t teach are the PAGE and

STEP 8:
Try 1”, 2” and so on, up to
4 feet.
• Try tapping the button on your
old remote instead of pressing
and holding it during the
learning process.

SimpleSoundTM is a dynamic feature that gives you total
volume control over all the Components in your system,
even those without their own built-in volume control, such
as TiVo, DVD and VCR... saving you the hassle and
inconvenience of constantly needing to switch between
Component modes on the remote. With SimpleSoundTM,
you can set the RF30’s volume control buttons to always
control the sound in your system, even when you’re in
VCR or DVD mode, without switching back to AUDIO or TV.
Even more exciting, SimpleSoundTM is what is called a
‘Punch Through’ feature and is not limited strictly to volume
control. Click and enjoy!
STEP 1:
In a basic home entertainment
system, the sound may come
from your TV. In a more
advanced system, the sound
may come from your audio
Component such as a Surround
Sound Receiver or Home
Theatre system. So, first, you
need to identify which
Component you want to use in
your system for sound.
STEP 2:
Press and hold the MAIN and
ENT (Enter) buttons at the same
time for approximately 3 seconds,
until the word “SETUP” is
displayed at the top of the LCD
touch screen. This signals that
you are now in setup mode.

PROGRAMMING A “RESS & HOLD” MACRO:
Another option for Component button macros is to only
send the macro if the button is pressed and held. This is
setup by entering a delay as the first step of the macro.
The amount of delay determines how long the user must
press the button before the macro is sent. The advantage
of this option is that a normal press of the COMPONENT
button will simply switch Components without sending
the macro command.

the TV speakers, AUDIO for
systems with surround sound
receivers). The bottom of the
display will flash “SAVED”.
STEP 6:
Repeat STEPS 4-5 until all your
Components operate the volume
perfectly.
Press the MAIN button twice to
return to normal operating mode
and test your SimpleSoundTM
settings.
NOTE:The Punch Through feature is not
limited to volume and can also be applied
to channel selection or other functions. If
you find yourself switching to a particular
Component frequently to use a group of
controls, consider using Punch Through for
another group, as listed here:
VOL - Volume Up,Volume Down and
Mute
CH - Channel Up, Channel Down,
Previous Ch and Channel (0-9)
buttons.
PLAY - Play, Stop, Pause, Rewind and
Fast Forward
VOD - Guide, Menu, Info, Exit, Up,
Down, Left, Right, Select
Simply perform the steps outlined
above, but in STEP 4, press one
of the control options (CH, PLAY or
VOD).

The Optional PowerBlasterTM
(for ‘barrier-free’ RF control)
[Sold separately]
Of all the fabulous RF30 features, this is probably the most
exciting. When used in combination with the optional
PowerBlasterTM, the RF30 becomes an amazing remote
control powerhouse that sends multi-directional RF (Radio
Frequency) signals that pass through walls, doors and
floors - both indoors and outdoors.
This changes everything! It enables you to control
Components that are completely out-of-sight, up to 100’
away. The PowerBlasterTM picks up RF30’s radio frequency
signals from any direction, regardless of distance, so RF30
doesn’t need to be pointed directly at any Component.
Just imagine - no more pointing! Now you can close your
entertainment center doors, hide your Components, and
still control them with ease. Control outdoor speakers on
your patio. Control your Components anywhere!
The PowerBlasterTM converts radio signals to standard
infrared commands and sends them out via a built-in front
blaster to Components in the same cabinet space.
One of the best things about this is - nothing has to be
done to the RF30 for this feature to work. Every time you
press a button on the RF30, it sends both a standard IR
(Infrared Command) AND an RF (Radio Frequency) signal.
If you install the PowerBlasterTM kit, it will automatically
receive RF30’s radio signals and translate them into the
infrared commands that control your Components.
NOTE: The RF30's radio signals will not control Components
directly. You must have a PowerBlaster TM to receive the
RF30's radio signals. Components that came with “no
pointing” radio remote controls cannot be operated by the
RF30 unless the Component can be switched to standard IR
(Infrared Control) via its internal menus. Some remote
control ceiling fans are radio only and cannot be operated
by the RF30.
Self-adhesive “flashers” (included in the PowerBlasterTM kit)
affix to the front panels of your Components. The flashers
relay infrared commands to Components out-of-sight of the
PowerBlaster’s front blaster. The flashers plug into
PowerBlaster’s rear flasher line output jacks. Each flasher
has a 10’ cable to easily reach Components on nearby
shelves.
THE POWER BLASTER
THE POWER BLASTER
The RF30 sends radio signal to the PowerBlasterTM, which
is a radio receiver.

Frequently Asked Questions
Warranty
What is a “macro” button?
Universal Remote Control’s MastercontrolTM RF30 is
covered against any manufacturers defects or
workmanship for a period of one year from the date of
purchase if purchased from an authorized Universal
Remote Control dealer. Units purchased from online
auction sites or other unauthorized resellers have no
warranty. This warranty does not cover the following
items:
A “macro” is a button on the RF30 that you setup to make
a lot of things happen when you press it. For example, to
watch a DVD in most home theaters requires several
remote controls and many button presses (power up the
TV, power up the surround sound, power up the DVD
player, set the TV to the correct video input, set the
surround sound to the correct audio input and finally;
press play on the DVD player remote control).
Instead of pressing all of those buttons one at a time, the
RF30 enables you to setup one button that does all those
steps automatically with one press. For more information
on how and why you should setup macro buttons, watch
the Quick Setup DVD Program Guide or refer to pages
26-29 in this Manual.
If the batteries run out, will I lose my settings?
No. The RF30 stores all of your settings in non-volatile
FLASH memory. You could remove the batteries for
months, replace them at your convenience, and the RF30
would still remember your settings.
Who can I call for more answers?
The Universal Remote Control Technical Support and
Customer Service staff are ready to answer any questions
you might have.
- Damage from misuse, neglect, or acts of nature
- Products that have been modified or incorporated
into other products
- Products purchased more than 12 months ago
- Units purchased from unauthorized dealers or
companies
