Universal Remote Codes


Remote Codes

Universal remote codes are the three-digit codes attached to the remote controls of various manufacturers. Usually, a remote control device made by a particular manufacturer will only work for controlling a particular device, for example, television or DVD player, of that particular manufacturer. To provide a simple example, in the normal circumstances if you have Sony television, you need a remote control device of Sony to operate the television. Suppose you also have a videocassette recorder (VCR) of Sanyo, a DVD player of Samsung, and a music system of Philips. In the normal case, you need four remote control devices to operate all these machines. How easy it would be if one remote control could operate all these devices? The idea of universal remote control was born out of precisely this line of thinking.

Satellite Internet has made it possible for people who live in remote locations to receive high speed internet. There many deals available to interested consumers for satellite internet.

The presently available remote controls can be divided into three basic types: lower end remote controls, mid level remote controls, and higher end remote controls. Lower end remote controls do not have the facility of universal remote control. That is, if you purchase a lower end remote control, it can be used only for a particular device manufactured by the same manufacturer. But most of the mid level remote control and all the higher end remote controls have this facility to be converted into universal remote controls. You need the code of another manufacturer's remote control to enable its functionality in your remote control.

Take the above example of Sony TV, Sanyo VCR, Samsung DVD player, and Philips music system. If the remote control of Sony is a higher end product, you can convert this remote control into a universal remote control to operate all the devices you have. For that, you need the universal remote codes of the remote controls of other devices provided by their respective manufacturers. So if you know the codes of Sanyo, Samsung, and Philips remote controls, you can feed that codes to Sony remote control, and make it a universal remote control.

Universal Remote Codes

A remote control of a particular manufacturer will have a universal remote code. This code will be available in the user manual of that remote control. For example, the code of a particular type of remote control of Kenwood is 004, while that of Motorola is 003. A company may manufacture different types of remote controls, in which case they have different codes different models.

Converting a mid level or higher end remote control to a universal remote control requires some kind of technical knowledge and expertise. Sometimes it can become a really time-consuming process. People with interest in electronics will be successful in doing this through trial and error method. Some of the higher end mobiles will have a slot to connect data cable of a computer. For such remote controls, one can program the remote controls using some specifically designed software for this purpose. Mid-level remote controls require expert programming from the user side. An ordinary user might not be able to perform this kind of a programming. It is better to get the help of a skilled technician in such cases.

The most vital information to convert a normal remote control to a universal remote control is its universal remote code, which will be provided in the user manual. But most people fail to keep the user manuals, which contain other useful information also. If you also fall in this category, no need to worry. Universal remote codes of most of the companies are available on the internet. Just perform a Google search and you will have a number of websites that provide universal remote codes.
