There are two ways to program a universal remote: direct code entry and automatic code-search.
Direct Code Entry (Recommended)
Step 1: Locate the code list that was included with your remote. If you no longer have the code list, then open your remote’s battery compartment and look for a sticker, which should be located under the batteries or on the underside of the battery cover. The sticker contains the model and version numbers, as well as a URL address for online help with finding your remote’s device codes. Versions will be noted as “CL3,” “CL4,” or “CL5.” Make a note of which version you have and then replace the batteries and cover.
Step 2: Click on the appropriate link below to find device codes and step-by-step programming information for direct code entry:
GE Universal Remotes
Philips Universal Remotes
Step 3: Follow either the instruction manual that came with your remote or the online step-by-step instructions found at the links noted in Step 2.
Automatic Code Search
Some universal remotes are equipped with an automatic code-search function that searches through all the codes stored in the remote and locates the best code for your device. It’s best to consult your remote’s instruction manual. If you no longer have your GE or Philips manual, visit Jasco online support to search for a downloadable copy.
