The Philips universal remote can be programmed with a device code or by following the code search procedure on the remote itself. The device code is located inside the user's manual, but the code search allows users to program the remote without the manual.
The Philips website offers users the ability to find the proper code by selecting their device type. The codes are also listed in the user's manual. However, for users without access to a manual, the remote can be programmed by using the code search function. Once activated, users must select their specific device. Pressing the channel up and down buttons followed by a press of the mute button to save the code sets the remote for the device.
