I'm here to refute, to change a modern 4 digit code into 3 digit code you would DROP the first zero. so 0013 would 013.

I'm here to verify. I think the actual question is "can you download a setup code of 1000 or greater into a remote that uses 3 digit setup codes?" The answer is yes, but only if you program the remote using JP1. The 3-digit limitation is just in the programming instructions (ie, the remote only lets you enter 3 digits when you program a code to a device button). The 3-digit remotes store the data in exactly the same format as 4-digit remotes. In other words, they both use 2 bytes of EEPROM memory to store the codes.

Of course, if the goal is simply to load an upgrade for which the official UEI setup code is 1000+, you could always use JP1 to create a WAV file where the setup code is a number below 1000. Then you could program it to a device button using the normal remote procedures.

This is really interesting. On the URC-2094 you must enter a 0 before the three-digit code. That is, you enter 9-8-4-0-threeDigitBlinkCode. And you say the remote stores the code as four digits (two bytes).

So the UI is four digits and the internals are four digits -- I wonder where the three-digit restrictions COMES FROM.

Learning a lot here, much thanks -- Vincent

When they invented the older line of remotes, they didn't envision needing more than 999 codes for each device type, but now they do.
