I have a Radio Shack 15-1994 remote. I used setup code 0477 to program my Scientific Atlanta cable box/DVR. I have been using the learning function on the remote to program some of the functions that I have been unable to find codes for. However, as you know, these use more memory and I don't want to use the learning feature if I don't have to.

So I was wondering if there are some advanced codes I could use for setup code 0477 (or another setup code if there is a better one, because I didn't see one on [Link: hifi-remote.com]). Here are the functions I want to find codes for:

PLAY
RECORD
REWIND
FAST FORWARD
STOP
PAUSE
LIVE
EXIT

How do you enter those codes for those buttons?

It depends on what remote you have, see the middle of this page.

Thanks I found that after digging around. I have a ofa 8810 and the 8000HD for Cox. Got the advanced codes working after using setup code 0877. The only advanced ones I haven't gotten are the Live, PIP on/off, swap and move. Is there somewhere I can look for this?

If they aren't here. On the page I linked to in my first post, there are directions for testing advanced codes one at a time without having to map each one to a key. Sart at 000 and go to 255, testing each code.

For non-lcd remotes like the 1994 and 8810 already cited:

1. Put remote in the MODE you want to test (ie. cable)
2. press "P"/set/setup
3. press 1st 2 digits of test efc
4. press (and hold) last digit making sure remote is aimed at device being controlled.

I know this is an old thread, but a couple people mention no "LIVE" function. If you use "1877", it's available. OFA support suggested either "0877" or "1877" and to determine which worked "better". I checked (31) keys that are available on my cableco remote and between those two setup codes, the ONLY difference is "LIVE".

I don't use the PIP function too often so it's a low priority for me right now.

My problem now is finding/choosing what key to use for these functions that are available via advanced codes. For "LIST" (for non-SA-DVR users, this brings up the list of recorded programs), I'm using "Menu". It is a duplicate function of "Guide". For the 8-second-quick rewind, I chose "Enter" as it's not used otherwise. I still need to map "A", "B", and "C" but I don't know where to put them....

Hall,

After OFA uploaded the new setup code for 1877, I found much more functionality for the 8000HD than with 0877. I have an 8910 and mapped List to L1, a to L2, b to L3, and c to L4. You don't mention which remote you have, so I don't know if you've got L1-L4...

I read elsewhere that there's an advanced code for 30 second skip (057), and I tried using the instructions referenced above by edmund on the hifi-remote.com site to KEYMOVER it to the "com skip" key. Didn't work, get an error. Anyone know why? Can you not use KEYMOVER to assign a new function to the com skip key?

Also, I wanted to create a "power macro" and used the KEY MACRO command, setting up DVD, CBL, TV, RCVR to power with one press of the power button (M1-M3 are being used to switch to DVD/CBL/VCR). Is there any way to individually turn on/off devices with the power button now? If I hit VCR/Power, the above 4 devices power on/off, not the VCR.

This site has been great! I've lurked for a while and found most of the answers to my questions.

I have the 9960 (Kameleon, LED, 8-devices) and am using the '1877' code. I in fact tested both the '0877' and '1877' codes and found only ONE "key" that worked on one vs the other. You say "much more functionality" .... please elaborate. :-)

I don't have "L" keys, just the "M1", "M2", and so on (4 macro keys + the power button). I mapped "M1" to the 8-sec rewind as it's right above the normal rewind key. "M2" = A, "M3=B", and "M4=C" for the rest. With that done, the Kameleon completely replaces the stock remote, less the PIP keys (I rarely ever have used this so no loss).
