1. When I bought the remote during a weekend visit
to my girlfriend's house, all I did was learn
keys for the DVD player (Philips DVP642), and
for the DVD Recorder (Liteon-5001).
When you did this, you may have nearly filled the learning memory yourself, depending on how many keys you learned. The OFA remotes have a limited capacity for learning, and the learning memory is stated for all devices, cumulative. NOT x amount for this device, x amount for that device.
6. I started pressing keys to see what would happen.
...the naive belief that I might be able to restore
the damage :).
Don't consider all lost just yet. With the TV on and the remote in TV device, start this sequence:
(see what, if anything, happens)
There are 256 possible codes, so try 000 through 256. (Someone will be a stickler for detail here and point out that that makes 257, but I am not sure if 000 or 256 is a legitimate command, so humor me.)
