4.  When you’ve fi nished 

entering the fi ve-digit code, 
keep holding down the 
device key and look at the 
POWER key. 

 

Is the POWER key on? 

 

YES: You’re done! You’ve 
programmed this device 
key.

 

NO, it blinked four times and turned off: You have 
either entered a code number that is not in the code 
lists or missed a step in the code entry procedure. Try 
step 3 again. 

In most cases, the keys on 
this remote perform the 
same functions as the keys 
on your original remotes 
once you’ve programmed 
this remote to operate your 
devices. Many keys on this 
remote have other functions 
as well.
Device keys (TV

SAT•CBL•STRMDVD•VCR

DVR•AUX) put the remote 
in the right mode to control 
your device.
GUIDE•HOME and MENU 
access the same features 
as the keys on your original 
remotes.
Arrow keys act as 
navigation keys for 
streaming media players as 
well as in menu and guide 
systems for other devices.
CLEAR exits remote 
programming; it also 
performs the same 
functions as on your 
original remotes.
CHAN and VOL keys act 
as channel and volume 
controllers.
The INPUT and — (dash) 
key has three functions: (1) 
it toggles through all the 
video sources connected 
to your TV; (2) when the 
remote is in VCR mode, this 
button toggles between 
VCR and the TV input; (3) 
when you’re entering digital 
channel numbers directly, 
this button lets you separate 
the main channel number 
from the sub-channel 
number (such as 59.1).

Battery Saver
Your universal remote control saves battery power by 
automatically turning off if any key is pressed for more 
than 60 seconds. This saves your battery life should 
your remote get stuck in a place where the keys remain 
depressed, such as between sofa cushions.

Congratulations on your purchase of this 4-device RCA 

Universal Remote Control. This remote features a library 

of codes with the latest devices of all major brands, with 

support for streaming media players as well. The navigation 

keys have been redesigned to function seamlessly with the 

more sophisticated menu and guide systems found in today’s 

home entertainment devices.

SAVE THIS MANUAL AND THE CODE LISTS!

Remote controls can sometimes lose their programming 

when you change the batteries. Make sure you keep the 

manual and code lists in a safe place so that you can 

reprogram the remote if you need to.

Tip: This remote is already programmed to operate 

most RCA-branded TVs, VCRs, DVD players and satellite 

receivers. Just press the corresponding key—DVD•VCR 

for a DVD player, TV for a television, SAT•CBL•STRM for a 

satellite receiver, DVR•AUX for a DVR.

Your universal remote requires two AAA alkaline batteries 

(not included).

To install the batteries:

1.   Press and push the 

battery compartment 

cover to remove it.

2.   Insert the batteries, 

matching the batteries 

to 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.

To use this universal remote with your home entertainment 

system, fi rst you need to program it to control your devices. 

There are four ways you can program the universal remote 

to operate your devices. Try them in the order listed here:

•   The Brand Code Search searches through the codes 

for select brands of devices. 

•   The Direct Code Entry lets you enter a code from the 

accompanying code list for your brand of device. 

• 

The Auto Code Search goes automatically through all 

the codes for the device you’re trying to control. 

•   The Manual Code Search lets you manually go 

through all the codes for the device you’re trying to 

control.

Auto Code Search
The Auto Code Search goes automatically through all the 
codes for the device you’re trying to control. When you fi nd 
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•STRM for satellite receivers, cable boxes 
or digital TV converters or streaming media players, 
DVD•VCR for DVD players, and DVR•AUX for DVRs. To 
program a device key for a different type of device, see 
the 
Changing a Key’s Device Type section. 

To exit without saving a new code at any point in the 
Auto Code Search, press the CLEAR key.

1.  Manually turn on the device you 

want to control. 

2.  Press and hold the device key you want to program. 

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.

3.  Wait until the POWER key comes 

on and stays on. Then release 
both keys.

4.  Keep the remote pointed 

directly at the front panel 
of the device you want to 
control. Press PLAY on the 
remote and wait 5 seconds. 
The remote is testing a batch 
of 10 codes on your device.

Testing the Code for Maximum Functionality
1.   Try a variety of the device’s functions with the remote. 

If some device features don’t work, go to the next step 
to try a different code.

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 PLAY key every 5 seconds until the unit turns 
back on. 

3.   Once the unit turns back on, press the REVERSE key 

on the remote every 2 seconds until your device turns 
off again. When your device turns off again, press the 
STOP 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.

 

Did your device turn off? 

 

YES: Go to step 5.

 

NO: Press PLAY again. The remote tests the next batch 
of 10 codes. 

 

Keep pressing PLAY every 5 seconds until your device 
turns off. 

5. When your device turns off, 

press the REVERSE key on 
the remote and wait at least 2 
seconds. The remote tries the 
last of the previous ten codes. 

 

Did your device turn on?

 

YES: Press the STOP 
key. You’re done! You’ve 
programmed this device key.

 

NO: Press REVERSE again. The remote tests the next 
code in the batch. 

 

Keep pressing REVERSE every 2 seconds until your 
device turns back on. When it does, press STOP.

Note: If you accidentally press the REVERSE key after 
your device turns on, press the FORWARD 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 turns off, and the last programmed 
code under that device key is retained).
The POWER key blinks four times and turns off 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.

Testing the Code for Maximum Functionality
1.   Try a variety of the device’s functions with the remote. 

If some device features don’t work, go to the next step 
to try a different code.

2.   Repeat the Brand Code Search from the beginning. 

When the device turns off for the fi rst time, don’t 
press the STOP key, which would store the same code. 
Instead, with the unit now off, continue to press the 
POWER key repeatedly until the unit turns back on.

3.   Once the unit turns back on, you have found another 

code that operates the device. Press the STOP 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
The Brand Code Search goes through only the codes for one 
of the select brands listed in the accompanying code list. If 
your brand of device is listed, this search can be very quick 
and easy. 

TIPS: Each device key is associated with a type 
of device—the TV is preset to search for TVs, 
SAT•CBL•STRM for satellite receivers, cable boxes 
or digital TV converters or streaming media players, 
DVD•VCR for DVD players, and DVR•AUX for DVRs. To 
program a device key for a different type of device, see 
the 
Changing a Key’s Device Type section. 

To exit without saving a new code at any point in the 
Brand Code Search, press the CLEAR key.

1.  Manually turn on the device you 

want to control. 

3.  Press and hold the device key you want to program. 

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.

4.  Wait until the POWER key comes 

on and stays on. Then release 
both keys.

6.  Keep the remote pointed directly 

at the front panel of the device you 
want to control. Press POWER on 
the remote and wait 2 seconds. The 
remote is testing a single code for 
your device’s brand.

 

Did your device turn off? 

 

YES: Press the STOP key to store the code. You’re 
done! You’ve programmed this device key.

 

NO: Press POWER again. The remote tests the next 
code for your brand. 

 

Keep pressing POWER every 2 seconds until your 
device turns off. When it does, press STOP.

2.  Find your device’s brand in the 

Brand Code list section of the 
accompanying code list. Circle 
the number for your brand and

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 Brand 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 turns off, and the last programmed 
code under that device key is retained).
The POWER key blinks four times and turns off when the 
remote has gone through all the codes. The remote exits 
the Brand Code Search. If your device hasn’t turned off 
yet, try a different search method.

Direct Code Entry
Direct Code Entry lets you enter a code from the

NOTES
Remember to enter the code for future reference in the 
box provided in the Code Retrieval section of this manual. 
If your brand isn’t listed in the code list, use one of the 
Code Search methods to program the remote control. 
(Refer to the Auto and Manual Code Search methods.)
If you release the device key any time during the Direct 
Code Entry procedure, the POWER key blinks four times, 
and the process is exited. The last programmed code 
under the device key is retained.

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 in the list.

Manual Code Search
The Manual Code Search lets you go one-by-one through 
all the codes for the device you’re trying to control. When 
you fi nd the one that operates your device, you can 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, fi rst 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•STRM for 
satellite receivers, cable boxes or digital TV converters 
or streaming media players, DVD•VCR for DVD players, 
and DVR•AUX for DVRs. To program a device key for 
a different type of device, see the 
Changing a Key’s 
Device Type section. 
To exit without saving a new code at any point in the 
Manual Code Search, press the CLEAR key.

1.  Manually turn on the device 

you want to control. 

2.  Press and hold the device key you want to program. 

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.

3.  Wait until the POWER key comes 

on and stays on. Then release 
both keys.

4.  Keep the remote pointed directly at the front panel of the 

device you want to control. Press POWER on the remote 
and wait 2 seconds. The remote is testing a single code 
for your device.

 

Did your device turn off? 

 

YES: Press the STOP key to store 
the code. You’re done! You’ve 
programmed this device key.

 

NO: Press POWER again. The 
remote tests the next code for 
your device. 

 

Keep pressing POWER every 2 
seconds until your device turns off. 
When it does, press STOP.

 

TIP: Because there are so many codes, you may have to 

press the POWER key many times—possibly hundreds of 

times.

NOTES
Throughout the programming of each key, keep the 

remote pointed at the IR sensor of the device you are 

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 Manual 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 turns off, and the last programmed 

code under that device key is retained).
The POWER key blinks four times and turns off when the 

remote has gone through all the codes. The remote exits 

the Brand Code Search. If your device hasn’t turned off 

yet, try a different search method.

Testing the Code for Maximum Functionality
1.   Try a variety of the device’s functions with the remote. 

If some features of your devices don’t work, go to the 
next step to try a different code.

2.   Repeat the Manual Code Search and Entry Method 

from the beginning. When the device turns off for the 
fi rst time, don’t press the STOP key, which would store 
the same code. Instead, with the unit now off, continue 
to press the POWER key repeatedly until the unit turns 
back on. 

3.   Once the unit turns back on, you have found another 

code that operates the device. Press the STOP key.

4.   Test the key’s functionality again by trying a variety 

of functions. If the code controls the majority of the 
device’s functions, programming is complete. If the 
code stored does not give maximum functionality, try 
another code.

Changing A Key’s Device Type
Each device key is associated with a type of device—the 
TV is preset to search for TVs, SAT•CBL•STRM for satellite 
receivers, digital TV converters or streaming media players, 
or cable boxes, DVD•VCR for DVD players or VCRs, and 
DVR•AUX for DVRs. To program these keys to control a 
different kind of device, you have to reassign them fi rst.

Reassigning the DVD•VCR Key to Control a VCR
The DVD•VCR key defaults to control a DVD player. If you 

want the DVD•VCR key to control a VCR, you must reassign 

it.
1.   Press and hold the DVD•VCR key. The POWER key 

turns on. Keep holding down the DVD•VCR key.

2.   While holding down the DVD•VCR key, press and 

release the number 2 key on the keypad. The POWER 

key turns off.

3.   Release the DVD•VCR key. The POWER key blinks four 

times and then turns off. The DVD•VCR key is now set to 

control a VCR.

4.   Follow the directions in the auto, brand, direct entry, or 

manual code search to program the DVD•VCR key for 
your VCR. 

Reassigning the DVR•AUX Key To Control Other 
Devices
The DVR•AUX key defaults to control a DVR. If you want the 

DVR•AUX key to control a different device (an additional 
TV, DVD, satellite, digital TV converters or streaming media 
players, or cable box, for example), you must reassign it.
1.   Press and hold the DVR•AUX key. The POWER key 

turns on.

2.   While holding down the DVR•AUX key, press and release 

the number key on the keypad for the device you wish to 

control (see the chart below). The POWER key turns off.

DVR•AUX KEY CONTROLS:

Additional TV

press 1

VCR or DVR

press 2

Additional DVD

press 3

Additional satellite, digital TV 
converters or streaming media 
players, or cable box

press 5

3.   Release the DVR•AUX key. The POWER key blinks four 

times and then turns off. The DVR•AUX key is now set 

to control the device type you selected.

4.   Follow the directions in the auto, brand, direct entry, or 

manual code search to program the DVR•AUX key. 

Code Retrieval
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 fi nd 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 fi ve-digit code. Retrieving 
the actual code and writing it down will save you time 
if you ever need to program the remote again (e.g., if 
programming is lost when you change the batteries). 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.

1.   Press and hold the device 

key (TV, SAT•CBL•STRM, 
DVD•VCR, DVR•AUX) whose 
code you wish to retrieve. 
The POWER key turns on. 
Keep pressing the device key.

2.   While holding the device key down, press and hold 

the INFO key. The POWER key turns off. After holding 
down both keys for three seconds, the POWER key 
turns back on.

3.   Release both keys. The POWER key remains on.
4.   Starting with the number 1 key, press and release each 

number key on the keypad in the following order: 1-9, 
then 0. The number that causes the POWER key to 
blink is the fi rst number of the code. As you fi nd each 
number of the code, write it down for future reference.

Note: All TV codes begin with the number 1; all VCR 
and DVR codes begin with the number 2; all DVDs, the 
number 3; and all satellite receivers, digital TV converters 
or streaming media players, and cable boxes, the number 
5.

5.   Repeat step 4 until you have retrieved all fi ve numbers 

in the code. After the fourth number is retrieved, the 
POWER key blinks briefl y, then turns off.

TIP: To exit the Code Retrieval Mode at any time, press 
the CLEAR key.
Note: 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•STRM, 
DVD•VCR, DVR•AUX, INFO, CLEAR), Code Retrieval times 
out after 15 seconds. The POWER key blinks four times, 
and then turns off.

IMPORTANT

Because this remote controls more than one device, 
you must fi rst “tell” the remote which device you wish 
to operate. That means, if you wish to operate your TV, 
you must fi rst press the TV key to put the remote in the 
TV Mode. The remote stays in that device mode until 
you press a different device key. For example, if your 
remote is in TV Mode and you want to operate the DVD 
player, you must press the DVD key to change device 
modes.

Problem: The remote does not operate your device.
•  

Make sure the remote is in the correct mode by pressing the 
corresponding device key (TV, SAT•CBL•STRM, DVD•VCR, 
DVR•AUX). 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 two 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•VCR key 
controls the VCR or DVD functions. 

•  

Make sure the batteries are fresh and are properly installed.

Problem: The remote doesn’t perform commands properly.
•  

Make sure the remote is in the correct mode by pressing the 
corresponding device key (TV, SAT•CBL•STRM, DVD•VCR, 
DVR•AUX). This tells the remote which device to operate.

•  

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 OK 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 confi rm 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 fi nd the code that allows the remote 
to control the majority of your device’s functions. Different 
codes can provide different levels of functionality.

Problem: The POWER key does not light when you press a 

key.
•  

You may have pressed an invalid key for the mode the 
remote is in. 

• 

Make sure the remote is in the correct mode by pressing the 
corresponding device key (TV, SAT•CBL•STRM, DVD•VCR, 
DVR•AUX). This tells the remote which device to operate.

•  

Make sure the batteries are fresh and are properly installed. 
Replace the batteries with two new AAA batteries, if 
necessary (see the Battery Installation section). 

Problem: The remote will not change channels on device.
• 

Make sure the remote is in the correct mode by pressing the 
corresponding device key (TV, SAT•CBL•STRM, DVD•VCR, 
DVR•AUX). This tells the remote which device to operate.

•  

Press the OK key after you enter a channel number.

•  

Remove any obstacles between the remote and the device. 
Make sure to aim the remote at the IR sensor on the device.

Problem: The device’s menu does not appear on the TV 

screen.
•  

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•STRM, DVD•VCR, 
DVR•AUX). 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.
