Sounds like the Philips has a fairly long bit length... but when learning many remotes detect the frequency and code protocol only once at the beginning, so if that changes in the middle to some other protocol they can't go any further.
Maybe they had a higher-end version with macros? Although honestly, in this day and age and with the technology available, hard buttoned remotes are stillástuck firmly in the early 90s for no good reason.
Again, thanks for the reply. Sorry about the delay in responding.
I believe you are correct about the Philips bit length, and inability to switch protocol.
You are also correct about the technology side of this issue. we all know Philips does make the higher end remotes, with customized programming, but for that I use the Harmony remotes in the household.
In this instance, I was merely hoping for a "back up/secondary" remote for one of the kid's rooms. (Since it seems they are always asking "where's my remote?").....
