Universal remotes condense the function of multiple remote controls into one.

One for All universal remotes are a type of remote control that can be used on a number of devices, including televisions, VCRs and digital cable boxes. The remotes are programmed to control certain devices through the use of codes. The codes entered into the remote differ depending on the type and manufacturer of the device. As long as you know what kind of device you need to control, programming the remote for the device is simple.

1

Look up the codes for the device you wish to program in your remote control's manual.

2

Manually turn on your device, and press the button for the device you wish to program on the remote.

3

Press and hold the "Setup" button until the light on your remote blinks twice, then release the button.

4

Enter one of the codes for your device into the remote's keypad. The remote's light should blink twice, indicating that the code was entered correctly.

5

Aim the remote control at your device and press the "Power" button. If the device turns off, you have entered an appropriate code, which will automatically save to your remote. If the device does not turn off, repeat steps 2 through 4 using a different code.
