To program a remote, you can only use the TV, VCR, or Cable box codes for your particular device brand to operate your combo unit. Some Cable box brands like- Jerrold and Scientific Atlanta can only be programmed using the code-search method by using the channel UP key rather than ON/OFF during the code search. You should try using the code-search method first and if it doesn’t come in handy, then give it a try to code search list.
