USING LEARNING
The Potenza ST Universal Remote Control includes a
Learning feature (not available on all models) so you
can add functions that are unique to your home
entertainment devices (e.g.,VCR Tracking Up or Down).
However, there are some considerations.
Learning Precautions
• Your original remote controls must be in working
order for learning to work properly.
• Learned keys are mode-specific, so each one can
store a unique function for each mode.
• Do not use the following keys for learning: Device
Keys, SETUP, Record (•), Tune-In Keys.
• Learning capacity is approximately 16 to 25 keys,
depending on the code being learned.
• Certain device functions are not learnable including
multi-frequency types, some high frequency ones,
and other unusual formats.
• For optimum learning, avoid high levels of ambient
light such as natural sunlight or energy-efficient
fluorescent lights.
NOTE:
Please have your original remote controls
handy before programming learning.
Programming a Learned Key
NOTE:
If more than 15 seconds pass between key
presses, the remote exits programming.
1.
Press and hold SETUP until the last-selected
mode key blinks twice, then press 9 7 5.
NOTE:
2.
3.
If the LED displays one long flash instead,
either your batteries are low, or the Potenza ST
Universal Remote Control has a memory fault.
Press a mode key once (i.e., VCR, DVD, AUD,
TV, or STB) to assign a mode for learning.
Press the desired key on the Potenza ST once
to store the feature to be learned.
Some features might not be available.

and/or key or press and hold SETUP until the
active mode key LED blinks twice to exit
programming.
NOTE:
6.
Deleting a Single Learning Key
This process returns the key to its original programming
for the mode you select. You can also delete learned
programming by teaching a different function to the key
(see “Programming a Learned Key” on page 13)
NOTE:
If more than 15 seconds pass between key
presses, the remote exits programming.

PROGRAMMING CHANNEL CONTROL LOCK
By default, the remote control’s channel-control
capabilities are locked to the set-top box. The affected
keys* are 1 through 0, CH+, CH-, and LAST. This will
guarantee that you do not inadvertently change a
channel on your TV or VCR. However, you can
de-activate this feature to allow full access to these keys
in the TV and VCR modes.
*NOTE: This feature does not affect the AUD mode.
Some features might not be available.

PROGRAMMING MACRO KEYS
The Potenza ST Universal Remote Control includes two
macro keys (located directly below the MUTE and LAST
keys). Macro keys allow you to set up key macros to
activate certain keys in a specific order. For example, you
can set up a key macro to change the channels on your
TV, raise or lower the volume, and start recording on
your VCR, all with the touch of one key. If you want to
change the macros stored in a previously-programmed
macro key, you’ll need to clear the key first (see
“Clearing a Macro Key” on page 20).

RE-ASSIGNING DEVICE KEYS
The Potenza ST Universal Remote Control can be set up
to control a second device of an already-assigned type.
For example, to have the unit control a TV, a set-top box,
and two audio devices (for example, two audio
receivers), re-assign the unused VCR key to operate the
second audio device as follows:
NOTE:
VCR is preset at the factory to control an RCA
VCR. Performing the steps below will overwrite
those settings.
1.
On the remote control, press VCR once; it will
blink once. Then press and hold SETUP until
the VCR key blinks twice.
2.
Enter 9 9 2. The VCR key will blink twice.
3.
Press AUD once, then press VCR once. The VCR
key will blink twice.
The VCR key is now ready to be programmed for your
second audio device. See “Programming Device
Control” on page 8. To re-assign other device keys,
repeat these and substitute the key sequence using the
following chart:
NOTE:
Only one device can be assigned to an unused
device key at a time.

When a re-assignment is done, the selected device key
(e.g., AUD) will blink twice to confirm your choice. At
that time, you will need to program device control (see
“Programming Device Control” on page 8).
CLEARING CUSTOM PROGRAMMING
The Potenza ST Remote Control contains a Custom
Programming Reset program. You can use it to remove
all custom programming, except your setup codes and
reassigned device keys.
IMPORTANT: Executing this program will erase all custom
settings for Volume Lock, Learned Keys,
Tune-In Keys, and Channel Lock. However,
your device programming remains.

On the remote control, press and hold SETUP
until the last-selected device key blinks twice.
2.
Enter 9 8 0. The last-selected device key
blinks twice, pauses, and blinks twice again to
confirm that all custom programming is
cleared.
