How to Program Spectrum Universal Remote Controls: 

Pre-Programmed 3-Digit Code Method

If the 3-digit code you just entered is correct, the component will turn off. If it didn't turn off, continue entering code numbers listed for your brand until the component turns off.
  1. Turn on the component you want to program (TV, VCR, DVD or AUX).
  2. Press the COMPONENT button (TV, VCR, DVD or AUX) to be programmed and OK/SEL button simultaneously for 3 seconds. The component LED will light for 30 seconds, which indicates that the unit is ready to be programmed.
  3. Point the remote control toward the component and enter the 3-digit code assigned to your brand.
  4. After you've entered the correct code and the component has turned off, press the POWER button to turn the component back on. Now test the VOLUME and MUTE buttons for the TV (or PLAY and STOP buttons for VCR and DVD) to make sure they all work. If any of the functions don't work as they should, repeat from Step 3 using the next 3-digit code listed for your brand.
  5. Once you've found the correct 3-digit code, save it by pressing the same COMPONENT button one more time. The component LED light will blink twice to confirm that the code was successfully stored.
  6. Now, program the rest of your components by repeating Steps 1-5.
If the pre-programmed method didn't work, or if the code tables don't list your brand, use the auto-search method.

Auto-Search Method

  1. Turn on the component you want to program (TV, VCR, DVD or AUX).
  2. Press the COMPONENT button (TV, VCR, DVD or AUX) to be programmed and OK/SEL button simultaneously for 3 seconds. The component LED will light for 30 seconds, indicating the unit is ready to be programmed.
  3. Point the remote toward the component and press the CH+ or CH- button one step at a time or keep it pressed. The remote will emit a series of ON/OFF commands. Release the CH+ or CH- button as soon as the component turns off.
  4. Test functions. (Same as for 3-digit code programming method). If any of the functions don't work as they should, repeat from Step 3 using CH+ or CH- buttons to find the correct code.
  5. Save the code. (Same as for 3-digit code programming method).

Now, repeat the auto-search method for those components you couldn't program earlier with the pre-programmed method.
