Programming the RCA RCR460 NaviLight4 Universal Remote Control
Your universal remote can operate a variety of brands of components. In order for your universal remote to control your components, you need to program the remote with the codes that match the components (See Code Lists enclosed). These codes enable the remote to communicate with your components. Each brand and each component has its own “language,” and, by programming the correct codes into your remote, you tell the remote to “speak the same language” as your components.
There are four methods you can use to program your remote control to operate your components: Brand Code Search and Entry, Direct Code Entry, Manual Code Search and Entry, and Auto Code Search and Entry. Most components can be programmed in one of these four ways. Try them in the order listed.
In order to control combo units, like TV/VCRs, TV/DVDs or TV/VCR/DVDs, you must program the individual corresponding component keys to control each part of the combo unit. Once programmed successfully, the TV key controls the TV functions on your unit, and the DVD or VCR·AUX key controls the DVD or VCR functions, respectively. There is a specific section in the Code Lists for combo units. The codes in this section should be tried first, using Direct Code Entry on the TV and DVD or VCR·AUX keys. If this is unsuccessful, follow the normal programming methods for both the TV and the DVD or VCR·AUX keys.
VCR·AUX Key: The VCR·AUX key defaults to program a VCR. If you want the VCR·AUX key to control a component other than a VCR (an additional TV or DVD, for example), it is necessary for you to preprogram the VCR·AUX key. See the section entitled “Programming the VCR·AUX Key To Control a Component Other Than a VCR” on page 7 of the user manual.
- To exit without saving at any point in the Brand Code Search, press and release the GO BACK key.
- Throughout the programming of each key, be sure to keep the remote pointed at the IR sensor of the component you are currently programming the remote to control.
Brand Code Search and Entry
If your brand is listed in the Brand Code List (See Code Lists enclosed), you may be able to program your universal remote by searching through only the Code Lists for that specific manufacturer. Brand Code Search and Entry can be the quickest method to program your remote, if your component (TV, DVD, VCR and satellite receiver or cable box) is one of those brands listed.
If your brand is not listed in the Brand Code List, use one of the other programming methods that follow.
Follow these instructions to program your remote using the Brand Code Search and Entry method. Example used is for TV component set up.
- Manually turn on the component you want the remote to control.
- Locate the Brand Codes in the Code Lists and keep it handy.
Note: If you press an invalid key during the Brand Code Search, the remote does not respond. If you do not press a valid Brand Code Search key (TV, DVD, VCR·AUX, SAT·CBL, ON·OFF, GO BACK, and number keys 0-9), the search times out after two minutes. When the search times out, the name of the current component blinks four times and turns off. The last programmed code under that component key is retained.
- Press and hold the component key (TV, DVD, VCR·AUX, SAT·CBL) you wish to program. (To program the VCR·AUX key to control a component other than a VCR, see page 7). The component name illuminates and remains on.
