Connecting a GE universal remote to a device is a simple and universal process among all remote models if you know the device’s code. The first step in locating the code is to note the vendor code that is found under the battery compartment of your remote. It is a three-character code that starts with CL followed by a number. With that in hand, you can find the code for your device in your controller’s included Code List or by searching an online database such as Universalremotereviews’ page. The code will be listed under your device’s manufacturer and controller vendor code. There may be multiple codes, so note all the ones you find for your device. Once you have everything, here’s how to continue.
- Hold down the Setup button on the controller until the red indicator light illuminates, then let go.
- Locate the device button on the controller corresponding to the device you want to connect. The options will be TV, CBL, DVD, and AUX. Press down the one you need, and the red light will blink once.
- Input the four-digit code for your device using the number pad on the remote.
Check to see if the device is set up correctly. If it is not, repeat the process using one of the other codes listed for your device if there were multiple.
