The General Electric universal remote control codes are the codes used in tandem with the GE universal remote to operate various consumer electronics devices. The Jasco-owned GE universal remote control offers two distinct methods of programming it for use with consumer electronics devices.
These methods are the manual input of codes by a user and the use of the Code Search function, which is automatic. Manually entering the device codes is potentially the quickest way to accomplish the programming process. However, doing so requires an accurate list of codes from which to choose. The Code Search function tests each code from the remote's database until it locates the right one. In some cases, this may require testing up to 250 codes. GE universal remotes are identified by version numbers that determine the codes used for devices.
