5. Aim the remote towards the player and press POWER (or Play). lf the player does not respond, press CH+ to try the next code. If the player responds, press LEARN to lock the code. Codes are sent in order of popularity. CH - goes to the previous code.
6. After finding a code, record it: Press and hold LEARN until the light flashes twice, then press 9, 9, 0, 1.
Wait 3 seconds and count the number times that the light flashes. This represents the first digit (for example, 3 flashes : 3, no flash : 0) - write this down.

LEARNING COMMANDS
Commands from other infra-red remote controls can be captured by the processor remote control. The factory command is still available by pressing LEARN before pressing the taught key. If the factory command is used more than the learned command, the learned command can be programmed in Layer2 instead. In this case, the learned command is sent by pressing LEARN before pressing the key.
Before teaching a key note the following:
Control mode keys and LEARN cannot be taught. These keys never send IR commands.
A multiple key sequence (for example Rec+Pause or Rec+Play) cannot be taught to one key.
A high level of ambient light, light from displays, and exposed fans could interfere with learning.
To teach a key:
1. Point the source and processor remotes at each other, holding them 2 inches apart.

5. The light flashes rapidly. Within 4 seconds, press and hold the teaching key on the source remote until the light flashes twice. One long blink means bad capture (try again), memory full (delete another command), or unlearnable code.
6. Repeat steps 3-5 or 4-5 as often as desired until memory is full.
7. To exit, press and hold LEARN until the light flashes twice or wait l0 seconds.
