Tip: This remote is already programmed to operate many Samsung-branded TVs
and DVD players, RCA-branded VCRs, Tivo-branded DVRs, DIRECTV-branded
satellite, and Sony-branded audio receivers. Just press the corresponding key—
DVD for a DVD player, TV for a television, VCR•AUX2 for a VCR, SAT•CBL•DTC for
a satellite receiver, DVR•AUX1 for a DVR, and AUDIO for an audio receiver.
Step 1: Install your batteries
Your universal remote requires three AAA alkaline batteries (not included).
Testing the Code for Maximum Functionality
Auto Code Search
The Auto Code Search goes automatically through all the codes for the device
you’re trying to control. When you find the one that operates your device, you
can stop the search and store that code.
TIPS: Each device key is associated with a type of device—the TV is preset
to search for TVs, SAT•CBL•DTC for satellite receivers, digital TV converters,
or cable boxes, DVD for DVD players, DVR•AUX1 for DVRs, AUDIO for audio
receivers, and VCR•AUX2 for VCRs.
To program the DVR•AUX1 or VCR•AUX2 keys for a different type of device, see
the Reassigning the DVR•AUX1 or VCR•AUX2 key section.
To control combo devices, like TV/DVDs and TV/VCRs, you need to program each
key separately. Each key will control that part of the combo device.
If the original remote control that came with your device has separate ON and
OFF keys (instead of a single POWER key), the Auto Code Search might not work
with that device. Try the Direct Code Entry method described later in this manual.
To exit without saving a new code at any point in the Auto Code Search, press
the EXIT key.
1. Manually turn on the device you want to control.
2. Press and hold the device key you want to program
(the POWER key illuminates). While you’re holding
down the device key, use your other hand to press
and hold the remote’s POWER key at the same time
(the POWER key turns off).
To install the batteries:
1. Remove the battery compartment cover.
2.
Insert the batteries, matching the (+) and (–) marks
inside the battery compartment.
3. Push the battery cover back into place.
Battery Precautions:
• Do not mix old and new batteries.
• Do not mix alkaline, standard (carbon-zinc) or rechargeable (nickel-cadmium)
batteries.
• Always remove old, weak or worn-out batteries promptly and recycle or
dispose of them in accordance with Local and National Regulations.
3. Wait until the POWER key comes on and stays on.
Then release both keys.
Step 2: Program your remote
To use this universal remote with your home entertainment system, first you need
to program it to control your devices. There are four ways you can program the
universal remote to operate your devices:
•
•
•
•
The Auto Code Search goes automatically through all the codes for the
device you’re trying to control. It’s the easiest method, but it can sometimes
take longer than some of the other programming methods.
The Brand Code Search searches through the codes for select brands of
devices. It’s not as easy as the auto code search, but it can be faster.
The Direct Code Entry lets you enter a code from the accompanying code
list for your brand of device. It’s not as easy as the other methods, but it’s
potentially the fastest method. Note: Direct Code Entry is usually the best
method to use for audio devices.
The Manual Code Search lets you manually go through all the codes for
the device you’re trying to control.
2. Repeat the Auto Code Search Method from the beginning. When your device
turns off, do not stop searching. Instead, with the unit now off, continue to
press the SLOW key every 5 seconds until the unit turns back on.
3. Once the unit turns back on, press the SKIP BACK key on the remote every 2
seconds until your device turns off again. When your device turns off again,
press the OK key.
4. Test the key’s functionality again by attempting to control a variety of the
device’s functions. If the code that has been stored controls the majority of
the device’s functions, programming is complete. If the code stored does not
give maximum functionality, try another code.
Brand Code Search
Did your device turn off?
YES: Go to step 5.
NO: Press SLOW again. The remote tests the next
batch of 10 codes.
Keep pressing SLOW every 5 seconds until your device
turns off.

programmed this device key.
NO: Press SKIP BACK again. The remote tests the
next code in the batch.
Keep pressing SKIP BACK every 2 seconds until your
device turns back on. When it does, press OK.
Note: If you accidentally press the SKIP BACK key after
your device turns on, press the SKIP FWD key. Then,
wait two seconds to see if your device turns off again.
NOTES: Throughout the programming of each key, be sure to keep the remote
pointed at the IR sensor of the device you are currently programming the
remote to control.
Test the remote with the device to make sure the device key is programmed
with the correct code for maximum functionality. If some features don’t work,
try a different code. See the “Testing the Code for Maximum Functionality”
section below for more information.
During the Auto Code Search, the remote ignores keypresses that aren’t part
of the search.
The search times out after two minutes (the POWER key blinks four times and
the last programmed code under that device key is retained).
The POWER key blinks four times when the remote has gone through all the
codes. The remote exits the Auto Code Search. If your device hasn’t turned off

Manual Code Search
The Manual Code Search takes you one-by-one through all the codes for the device
you’re trying to control. When you find the one that operates your device, you stop
the search and store that code.
TIPS: The Manual Code Search method may take a long time because the remote
searches through all of the codes in its memory one-by-one. If your brand is listed in
the Brand Codes or the Code Lists, first try the Brand Code Search or the Direct Code
Entry method.
Each device key is associated with a type of device—the TV is preset to search
for TVs, SAT•CBL•DTC for satellite receivers, digital TV converters, or cable

Codes from the Code Lists include basic functionality for each component they
control. Once you have programmed in the code for your specific component,
you can customize the universal remote to include certain functions from your
original remote(s) that were not embedded in the preset code. Your universal
remote has the ability to learn and store commands from your original remote(s)
under the mode(s) of your choice. The universal remote can store up to 50 key
commands.* Only one original remote can be learned under any one mode (e.g.,
the universal remote can learn commands for one TV remote, one VCR remote,
etc.).
* Some learned signals require more memory than others. In these cases,
fewer key commands can be learned.

Any sequence of commands that you regularly perform (up to a maximum of 15
per macro) can be stored as a Macro under one of the 1–8 number keys (up to 8
macros).
Programming a Macro
Important: Before you start, make sure your remote is programmed to control
your devices and that you’ve learned all the keys you want to learn from your
original remotes.
1. Press and hold the MACRO key until the POWER key
turns on and remains on. The remote is now in Macro
Programming mode.
Learning From Your Original Remotes
1. Place your original remote and the learning remote on a flat surface as
shown below. Point the top of your original remote at the top of the learning
remote. The IR LED on the original remote should be pointing directly at
the learning remote’s learning sensor, located on the top of the remote. The
remotes should be 1–2 inches apart.
Using a Macro
• Make sure the original remote is in the same mode as the universal remote
so that the Learned key is assigned to the correct mode.
• To exit Learning mode at any time, press the SLEEP key.
2. Wait until the POWER key comes on and stays on. Then release both keys.
The remote is now in the Master Clear mode.
Once you’ve programmed the remote to control your devices, you may want to
record the codes for future reference. If you used the Direct Code Entry method,
this is easy. Just find the codes you entered and make a note of them in the
boxes below. If you used one of the Code Search methods to program your
remote or if you used the Direct Entry method but don’t remember the code, you
will need to retrieve each device’s five-digit code. Retrieving the actual code and
writing it down will save you time if you ever need to program the remote again.
If the codes are recorded, you can use the Direct Entry method to reprogram
your remote to control your devices, which is quick and easy.
6. To learn another key for this device mode: Repeat steps 4 and 5 for the
key you want to learn.
To learn keys in a different device mode: Repeat steps 2–5 for the next
device mode.
To save learned keys and exit learning: press the SLEEP key on the
learning remote.
2. Press the EXIT key. The POWER key blinks once, then remains on.
3. Press the number key (1–8) where the macro you want to delete is stored.
The POWER key blinks once, then remains on.
•
•
Make sure you have connected the device to your TV properly and selected the correct
input. (See your devices’ Owner’s Manuals for proper connection procedures.)
Make sure the remote is in the correct mode by pressing the corresponding device
key (TV, SAT•CBL•DTC, DVD, AUDIO, DVR•AUX1, VCR•AUX2). This tells the remote
which device to operate.
Menu access isn’t supported for all brands. You may need to use your original
remote control to access menu functions for some devices.
Problem: The Learning process cannot be completed successfully.
•
•
•
•
•
Replace batteries in both the learning remote and the original remote.
Make sure the distance between the remotes is approximately 1–2 inches.
Do not conduct the Learning process near an incandescent lamp.
The learning remote’s memory capacity may be full (50 Learned commands).
The original remote may not be compatible with the Learning procedure.

4. Press the OK key to confirm the Macro Clear operation. The POWER key
stays on for 2 seconds, then turns off. The selected Macro is deleted.
Note: If you do not press the OK key within 15 seconds (or if you press a
different key), the POWER key blinks four times and turns off. The remote exits
macro deletion mode, and no changes are made to existing Macros.
5. Repeat steps 1-4 for any other existing Macros to be cleared.
Troubleshooting
Care and Maintenance
• Keep the remote dry. If it gets wet, wipe it dry immediately.
• Use and store the remote only in normal temperature environments.
• Handle the remote gently and carefully. Don’t drop it.
• Keep the remote away from dust and dirt.
• Wipe the remote with a damp cloth occasionally to keep it looking new.
• Modifying or tampering with the remote’s internal devices can cause malfunction
and invalidate its warranty.
Problem: The remote does not operate your device.
2. Press the number key (1–8) you want to use for this
macro. The POWER key blinks once, then remains on.
Note: If you do not press a macro number key within 15
seconds (or if you press a macro number key that already
has a macro programmed), the POWER key blinks four
times and turns off. The remote exits macro programming
mode, and no changes are made to existing Macros.
3. Press the device key for the first device you use in the macro. The POWER
key blinks once and remains on.
4. Press each key you want to use in this Macro, in the exact order the keys
would be pressed if you were executing the sequence yourself. The POWER
key blinks each time a key is pressed. Continue this process for all keys to be
included in the Macro sequence under the given component mode.
Important: If you are using different devices in this macro, you must press
each device key before you start pressing the keys for that device. For example,
if you’re turning on the TV, then playing a DVD, you must press the TV key,
then POWER, then DVD, then PLAY.
5. Once you are finished programming the Macro, press the MACRO key to save
it. The POWER key illumination turns off, and the Macro is now ready to use.
Notes: To exit Macro programming at any time, press the EXIT key. The POWER
key blinks four times, then turns off. No changes are made to existing Macros.
If you press a key that has a Learned function, the Learned function is assigned
to the Macro sequence.
If you program all 15 keys into a Macro, the Macro is automatically saved after
the 15th keypress.
The commands within a Macro must be programmed in sequential order. A
delay of 0.5 seconds is used between sending each command in a programmed
Macro sequence.
You cannot program a Macro within a Macro.

Make sure the remote is in the correct mode by pressing the corresponding device
key (TV, SAT•CBL•DTC, DVD, AUDIO, DVR•AUX1, VCR•AUX2). This tells the remote
which device to operate.
Remove any obstacles between the remote and the device. Make sure you’re aiming
the remote at the device’s IR sensor.
Make sure the batteries are fresh and are properly installed. Replace the batteries
with three new AAA batteries, if necessary (see the Battery Installation section).
Problem: The remote can’t be programmed to operate your device.
•
•
•
•
If you are testing the remote while programming it, you may be too far away from the
device or at a wrong angle. There must be an unobstructed path between the remote
and the IR sensor on the device. Move closer and make sure you point the remote at the
device you’re trying to control.
If you’re using the Direct Entry programming method to enter the codes for your
brand and the unit is still not functioning properly, try the auto, brand, or manual
search method.
To control combo units, like TV/VCRs or TV/DVDs, you must program the
individual corresponding device keys to control each part of the combo unit. Once
programmed successfully, the TV key controls the TV functions, and the DVD or
VCR•AUX2 key controls the DVD or VCR functions.
Make sure the batteries are fresh and are properly installed.
Problem: The remote doesn’t perform commands properly.

Make sure device is ready (for example, the DVD player has a disc loaded).
You may have pressed an invalid key for the mode the remote is in.
If you’re trying to enter a channel number directly, try pressing the ENTER key after
entering the channel number as this is a requirement of certain models and brands.
There is a possibility that a programmed code may only be able to control some of
your device features (for example, only turns a device on and off). To confirm that
the device key is programmed with the correct code for maximum functionality, test
the device. Attempt to control a variety of the device’s functions with the remote. If
some of the features of your devices don’t work, try programming the remote with a
different code in the list using the Direct Code Entry Method, until you find the code
that allows the remote to control the majority of your device’s functions. Different
codes can provide different levels of functionality.

Tip: This remote is already programmed to operate many Samsung-branded TVs
and DVD players, RCA-branded VCRs, Tivo-branded DVRs, DIRECTV-branded
satellite, and Sony-branded audio receivers. Just press the corresponding key—
DVD for a DVD player, TV for a television, VCR•AUX2 for a VCR, SAT•CBL•DTC for
a satellite receiver, DVR•AUX1 for a DVR, and AUDIO for an audio receiver.
Step 1: Install your batteries
Your universal remote requires three AAA alkaline batteries (not included).
Testing the Code for Maximum Functionality
Auto Code Search
The Auto Code Search goes automatically through all the codes for the device
you’re trying to control. When you find the one that operates your device, you
can stop the search and store that code.
TIPS: Each device key is associated with a type of device—the TV is preset
to search for TVs, SAT•CBL•DTC for satellite receivers, digital TV converters,
or cable boxes, DVD for DVD players, DVR•AUX1 for DVRs, AUDIO for audio
receivers, and VCR•AUX2 for VCRs.
To program the DVR•AUX1 or VCR•AUX2 keys for a different type of device, see
the Reassigning the DVR•AUX1 or VCR•AUX2 key section.
To control combo devices, like TV/DVDs and TV/VCRs, you need to program each
key separately. Each key will control that part of the combo device.
If the original remote control that came with your device has separate ON and
OFF keys (instead of a single POWER key), the Auto Code Search might not work
with that device. Try the Direct Code Entry method described later in this manual.
To exit without saving a new code at any point in the Auto Code Search, press
the EXIT key.
1. Manually turn on the device you want to control.
2. Press and hold the device key you want to program
(the POWER key illuminates). While you’re holding
down the device key, use your other hand to press
and hold the remote’s POWER key at the same time
(the POWER key turns off).
To install the batteries:
1. Remove the battery compartment cover.
2.
Insert the batteries, matching the (+) and (–) marks
inside the battery compartment.
3. Push the battery cover back into place.
Battery Precautions:
• Do not mix old and new batteries.
• Do not mix alkaline, standard (carbon-zinc) or rechargeable (nickel-cadmium)
batteries.
• Always remove old, weak or worn-out batteries promptly and recycle or
dispose of them in accordance with Local and National Regulations.
3. Wait until the POWER key comes on and stays on.
Then release both keys.
Step 2: Program your remote
To use this universal remote with your home entertainment system, first you need
to program it to control your devices. There are four ways you can program the
universal remote to operate your devices:
•
•
•
•
The Auto Code Search goes automatically through all the codes for the
device you’re trying to control. It’s the easiest method, but it can sometimes
take longer than some of the other programming methods.
The Brand Code Search searches through the codes for select brands of
devices. It’s not as easy as the auto code search, but it can be faster.
The Direct Code Entry lets you enter a code from the accompanying code
list for your brand of device. It’s not as easy as the other methods, but it’s
potentially the fastest method. Note: Direct Code Entry is usually the best
method to use for audio devices.
The Manual Code Search lets you manually go through all the codes for
the device you’re trying to control.
2. Repeat the Auto Code Search Method from the beginning. When your device
turns off, do not stop searching. Instead, with the unit now off, continue to
press the SLOW key every 5 seconds until the unit turns back on.
3. Once the unit turns back on, press the SKIP BACK key on the remote every 2
seconds until your device turns off again. When your device turns off again,
press the OK key.
4. Test the key’s functionality again by attempting to control a variety of the
device’s functions. If the code that has been stored controls the majority of
the device’s functions, programming is complete. If the code stored does not
give maximum functionality, try another code.
Brand Code Search
Did your device turn off?
YES: Go to step 5.
NO: Press SLOW again. The remote tests the next
batch of 10 codes.
Keep pressing SLOW every 5 seconds until your device
turns off.

programmed this device key.
NO: Press SKIP BACK again. The remote tests the
next code in the batch.
Keep pressing SKIP BACK every 2 seconds until your
device turns back on. When it does, press OK.
Note: If you accidentally press the SKIP BACK key after
your device turns on, press the SKIP FWD key. Then,
wait two seconds to see if your device turns off again.
NOTES: Throughout the programming of each key, be sure to keep the remote
pointed at the IR sensor of the device you are currently programming the
remote to control.
Test the remote with the device to make sure the device key is programmed
with the correct code for maximum functionality. If some features don’t work,
try a different code. See the “Testing the Code for Maximum Functionality”
section below for more information.
During the Auto Code Search, the remote ignores keypresses that aren’t part
of the search.
The search times out after two minutes (the POWER key blinks four times and
the last programmed code under that device key is retained).
The POWER key blinks four times when the remote has gone through all the
codes. The remote exits the Auto Code Search. If your device hasn’t turned off
yet, try a different search method.

The Manual Code Search takes you one-by-one through all the codes for the device
you’re trying to control. When you find the one that operates your device, you stop
the search and store that code.
TIPS: The Manual Code Search method may take a long time because the remote
searches through all of the codes in its memory one-by-one. If your brand is listed in
the Brand Codes or the Code Lists, first try the Brand Code Search or the Direct Code
Entry method.
Each device key is associated with a type of device—the TV is preset to search

Volume Punch-Through
Volume Punch-Through allows the VOL and MUTE keys, when pressed in
SAT•CBL•DTC, DVD, DVR•AUX1 or VCR•AUX2 modes, to “punch through” to
either TV or AUDIO, whichever was accessed last. Volume Punch-Through occurs
automatically and allows you to control the volume without exiting the current
mode. (If the DVR•AUX1 or VCR•AUX2 key has been programmed with a TV or
AUDIO code, volume can punch through to these devices as well.)
Note: Volume Punch-Through does not occur in cases where the component
code has its own volume/mute controls, such as some satellite receivers.
Advanced Punch-Through
Volume punch-through as described above occurs automatically. Advanced punchthrough lets you specify one device for all volume commands for each non-audio
mode (SAT•CBL•DTC, DVD, DVR•AUX1, or VCR•AUX2). You can specify either the
TV or AUDIO device (or an AUX key operating a TV or Audio device).
1. Press and hold the device key whose volume commands you want to send
to the TV or audio device. The POWER key turns on.
2. While holding down the device key, press and hold the VOL up key. The
POWER key turns off.

Learning
Codes from the Code Lists include basic functionality for each component they
control. Once you have programmed in the code for your specific component,
you can customize the universal remote to include certain functions from your
original remote(s) that were not embedded in the preset code. Your universal
remote has the ability to learn and store commands from your original remote(s)
under the mode(s) of your choice. The universal remote can store up to 50 key
commands.* Only one original remote can be learned under any one mode (e.g.,
the universal remote can learn commands for one TV remote, one VCR remote,
etc.).
* Some learned signals require more memory than others. In these cases,
fewer key commands can be learned.
Before First-Time Learning
Before you start learning keys for the first time, clear any stored learning
information that might be in the remote. This lets you begin with a clean slate.
1. Press and hold the EXIT key (the POWER key illuminates). While you’re
holding down the EXIT key, use your other hand to press and hold the
POWER key (the POWER key illumination turns off).
3. Press ENTER to start changing channels with your TV.
Code Retrieval
3. Press the OK key to confirm the Clear operation. The POWER key remains on
for 2 seconds, then turns off. All Learned functions for all components are
now cleared; all other programming remains intact.
TIPS: All TV codes start with the number 1; all VCR and DVR codes start with
the number 2; all DVD player codes, the number 3; all audio device codes, the
number 4; and all satellite receiver, cable box, and digital TV converters, the
number 5.
To exit the Code Retrieval Mode at any time, press the EXIT key.
If you press an invalid key during the Code Retrieval process, the remote will
not respond. If you do not press a valid Code Retrieval key (TV, SAT•CBL•DTC,

macros).
Programming a Macro
Important: Before you start, make sure your remote is programmed to control
your devices and that you’ve learned all the keys you want to learn from your
original remotes.
1. Press and hold the MACRO key until the POWER key
turns on and remains on. The remote is now in Macro
Programming mode.
Learning From Your Original Remotes
1. Place your original remote and the learning remote on a flat surface as
shown below. Point the top of your original remote at the top of the learning
remote. The IR LED on the original remote should be pointing directly at
the learning remote’s learning sensor, located on the top of the remote. The
remotes should be 1–2 inches apart.
Using a Macro
• Make sure the original remote is in the same mode as the universal remote
so that the Learned key is assigned to the correct mode.
• To exit Learning mode at any time, press the SLEEP key.
2. Wait until the POWER key comes on and stays on. Then release both keys.
The remote is now in the Master Clear mode.
Once you’ve programmed the remote to control your devices, you may want to
record the codes for future reference. If you used the Direct Code Entry method,
this is easy. Just find the codes you entered and make a note of them in the
boxes below. If you used one of the Code Search methods to program your
remote or if you used the Direct Entry method but don’t remember the code, you
will need to retrieve each device’s five-digit code. Retrieving the actual code and
writing it down will save you time if you ever need to program the remote again.
If the codes are recorded, you can use the Direct Entry method to reprogram
your remote to control your devices, which is quick and easy.
6. To learn another key for this device mode: Repeat steps 4 and 5 for the
key you want to learn.
To learn keys in a different device mode: Repeat steps 2–5 for the next
