TV.ManualsOnline.com has manuals available for most manufacturers and models of universal television remote controls. Some manufacturers, including Philips, have manuals for all of their specific models available on their websites.
Owners can find product information, device code lists and step-by-step instructions for programming and operation of most universal remote controls at several web locations, including RemoteCentral.com and TechChannel.Radioshack.com. Remote control manufacturers may use different methods of storing program codes, which can produce different codes to operate the same device, depending on the remote control manufacturer and model. The correct manual, or programming instruction set, is required for the universal remote to function properly.
