Advanced codes can be as simple as you want them to be. Some advanced codes can also be discrete, meaning they will perform only one operation, such as ON, or OFF. You will need a Radio Shack or a OneForAll remote to be able to gain access to advanced codes and send them to your learning remote. An advanced code is a 3 digit code that you take from a list of advanced codes (the reference below will help you get there). Then, you assign the setup code you are working with to the OFA/RS remote. Next, you hit the Setup (or similarly designated) button. Then the 3 digits. This sends a command to either your learning remote or to the component. Either way, you have created a command which will allow you to perform operations not available on the original remote. In spite of what some will tell you, you do not need to go into advanced procedures like jp1 or computer interfaces if all you want is some discrete on/off codes and a few others because just about everything you will need will be available.

This is the latest list of remotes which will accept advanced/discrete codes:
Radio Shack (current as of December 2004): 15-2103, 15-2116, 15-2133, 15-2142 (no amp function key)(uses 5 digit EFC so put 00 in front)
OneForAll (OFA): (Current as of November 05) The newer OFA remotes now take 5 digit advanced codes, so if you see a list of 3 digit codes, just add two zeroes to the FRONT of them. The current line up OFA remotes include urc-6820, 8820, 10820, 6690, and the 9964.
