Many people asking me Via the contact us page that they can’t set up the remote with the code provided in the user manual. If you feel that non-of the codes are not working, you can simply follow the auto-code search method to program your Jumbo universal remote.

Next, press and hold down the CODE SEARCH key until the LED indicator stays ON. Then release the key.
Then point your Jumbo remote to the device, and REPEATEDLY press and release the POWER button until your device is turned OFF. It’s suggested to give 1 – 2 seconds time intervals between each pressing.
If there is no response, repeatedly press the CHANNEL UP button until the device responds like controlling channels.
Once you notice the significant response, press and release the MUTE button to register the code.
In the testing phase, test all the keys like CH+, CH-, Vol+, Vol-, etc on the remote whether all are working properly with the device.
