1) I have two Atlas remotes provided by my cable company (a model 1055 and a 1056). I'm discontinuing my cable TV and will be switching to Over-the-Air. Therefore, I would like to repurpose my Atlas remotes. Specifically, I want to reaasign the CBL device key to be used for another device. I have tried to reassign another device to the CBL key (such as Aux to CBL on the 1055 and VCR to CBL on the 1056) however it has not worked. Whenever I reassign one device key to another device key on these remotes it has worked with exception of reassigning TO the CBL key. (Note: I have unlocked the cable ID lock - code 982). Can the CBL key on these remotes be reassigned to use with another device or are they permanently set to only be used with a cable/satellite box?

2) Can a key that has had an EFC code assigned to it via the Advanced Function Code technique be copied via Key Mover to another key under a different device? With a preassigned key I can do this but it has not worked with one where I entered an EFC code.

1) Typically, UEI remotes that are intended for the cable market can not have the CBL button assigned to a different device via the 992 command. Of course it is possible to reassign the CBL button with a JP1.3 flash cable.

2) No, you can't directly copy an EFC that is assigned to one button to another button. However, let's say that you want to assign a EFC in the CBL device mode, but using the setup code that is (perhaps temporarily) assigned to some other device button. The remote will do that.

For example, suppose that you have setup code 1658  (Sony 12/15/20 combo executor) assigned to the Audio button.  Let's assume you want to assign EFC 33481 (Preset up on Sony receivers) to the Ch+ button while in CBL mode.

1.  Press Setup until 2 blinks
2. Enter 994 (2 blinks)
3. Tap the Audio device button
4. Tap Setup
5. Enter 33481
6. Tap CBL
7. Tap Ch+
The remote should blink twice.

Now if the remote is in CBL mode, tapping Ch+ should send the Sony IR signal for Preset Up.
