The past few days were spent programming TV remotes!!! Who would have ever thought that it could be so difficult.
First, I ordered a second universal remote for the living room. I had used this remote for a long time at my parents house and it controlled everything I owned. It worked great, only I had some difficulty programming my DVR/Cable Box combo that I got from Cablevision. I went online and ordered a better remote with learning capabilities.
Playing around at the website, I realized that I could call OFA and they could update my remote over the phone, so after a 5 minute call, I got the original remote working. Figures, right?
So the new remote came in and it’s awesome! Aside from controlling my stereo and cablebox, it learns from other remotes. so I programmed it to work my projector too. Now, I only need one remote to work ALL the electronics in my house… Including my bedroom..
In case you want a cool remote, I recommend the following:
All in One URC-6131 (6-device, TiVo function buttons, $10)
All in One URC-6960 (Kameleon, 6-Device, Learning-able, $34)
