Programming Your Remote Control
Zenith Universal Remote Controls allow users to cut down on the number of remote controls that they have. Universal remote controls can be programmed to control a bunch of devices, including a television, DVR unit, receiver and DVD player. While it may seem easy to just follow the instructions in the manual, oftentimes it proves to be difficult for many people. So, to help you with this, here are step-by-step instructions on how to program a Zenith Universal Remote Control.
Finding Device Codes
Once you have completed the first device, you will have to continue programming all the rest of the devices in the same way.
Another way to find the three digit code is by going to the following site: www.xdiv.com/remotes/. This site has codes for many products by nearly all major manufacturers. If you cannot find your exact device, try using a code by the same manufacturer for a similar device or other model. Oftentimes, companies will use the same or similar codes for their devices.
Universal Remotes in Home Theaters
One caveat when it comes to universal remote controls. There have been many issues with universal remotes in home theater setups, especially when it comes to volume. Many of these remotes will only turn up the volume on the television. They don’t seem to register audio receivers as the main listening device. So, you may have to play around with your remote to ensure that it is working properly.
If you are having issues with your remote, you should try contacting Zenith Customer Support to assist you. Customer Service can be reached by calling 877-9Zenith or by visiting the Support section of their website.
