    I have the RCAH02BR Universal Remote: the instructions that came with the device says to enter a 4 digit code, but the above instructions say a 3 digit code. The code list included with the remote doesn’t go past S, so Toshiba codes don’t show on my list. These code list show a 3 digit code and a 4 digit code, but the 4 digit codes are all preceded with a zero. I can’t tell which codes I should use. This has been very frustrating to me. I would take it back but the encasement is not suitable for returning it.

    1 – Click the setup button that is to the top left of the Sanyo remote control.
    2 – The light at the top will begin flashing.
    3 – On the top right is the TV or DVD button.
    4 – Hold the TV or DVD button down and put in the code that you found.
    5 – Now, make sure the codes and programming worked.
    6 – Change channels on the TV.
    7 – Try to turn the DVD player on.
    8 – If all of this is working with the Sanyo remote it is configured correctly.

    Ruth Miller,
    Unplug or turn OFF all components.
    Turn one component ON at a time.
    Once all components are ON and are working, then try your remote again.
    If you still have issues, try changing the batteries.
    Turning OFF DirecTV and back ON should not erase all the codes.

  8. I somehow turned off the SatelliteTV (DirecTV) and the DVR, and I don’t know how to turn them back on to sync with the RCA remote. The TV is TCL Roku.
