Awesome it worked and only took about a minute...so easy. Thank you for posting these excellent instructions!!
Great News!! We can program most Philips Universal Remotes with Automatic Code Searh. Here's how it works on most of our remotes.
Programming with Code Search
1. Manually turn on the device (TV, VCR, etc.) to be controlled.
2. Press and hold Code Search button until the red indicator stays on. Release the Code Search button.
3. Press and release the desired mode button (TV, VCR, etc.). The red indicator blink, then stays lit.
4. Press the Channel Up button repeatedly (up to 300 times) until the device could be controlled changes channel. The red indicator blinks, then stays lit. If you accidentally overshoot the code required, press the Channel Down button to backtrack through the library until the device changes channel. Pressing Channel Up changes direction to forward again. Press and release the Mute button to install the code.
The above assumes that you want to store the VCR you want under the VCR but, Cable codes under the CBL, etc
Note: if the device does not have a chat channel at a button, you should Play (VCR only) or Power instead.
Here is a Code List on PDF that shoud be universal for most remotes. It worked for me.[Link: remotecodelist.com]
Hope this helps you out, good luck.
