The A button on my UCR 1056 remote has been programmed to jump forward 60 seconds when pressed during a recorded playback. Unfortunately, this remote has become defective and I no longer have the code for this action to put into a new 1056. Can anyone supply a discrete code and instructions so that I can set up my new remote?

What component are you trying to control?

Atlas 1056 remotes are used by several cable companies and are used to control Motorola and Scientific Atlanta boxes. Unless you tell us the details of the unit you're trying control, there is no way to know or guess the 60 second skip IR signal.

Look at the cable box, and find a make and model number. Also, what setup code are you using?

Sorry for the delay in responding. The cable box is a Motorola DCH 3416 and I am controlling a Sony TV as well as a Sony audio receiver and a Sony DVD player. Unfortunately, I don't know the codes.

OK, the 3416 is probably using setup code 1376. It can do a 15 second skip forward, and presumably you can turn this into 60 seconds of skip by sending the 15 sec skip command 4 times, either manually or in a macro.

First test that the skip command works (the box needs to be playing a recorded show while testing)
Tap Cable
Tap Setup (don't hold it)
Enter 00173
The program should skip forward 15 seconds.

Choose a button to assign the 15 second skip to (e.g. PIP On/Off)
1) Press Setup until 2 blinks
2) Enter 994 (2 blinks)
3) Tap Setup
4) Enter 00173
5) Tap PIP On/Off
The remote should blink twice to indicate that the assignment was accepted.

More detailed 9XX command instructions are here; use the 995 command to make a 4 step macro in order to get a 60 second skip.

Thank you very much. Works like a charm.
