Thread Details

I bought a remote control for my PS3 so that I can watch Netflix without running my controllers out of batteries so fast. It comes with an IR emitter, so it can be programmed to also control my TV and Receiver.

How do I go about programming the remote with the codes necessary to control my TV or receiver? I've googled the question and the Sony manual is worthless.

Found mah PS3 remote manual!
(Sony model CECH-ZRC1U)

To program a device:
Hold down the device button (TV button) and hit the Clear button
Enter the 3 digit code while the device button is flashing
Hit "Enter" and the device button will stay lit to confirm entry.

Let me know what brand of TV you have, I'll give you the codes for it.


LG TV codes:
305, 306, 307, 308, 309

Hmmm, I don't see a listing for Yamaha receiver codes, it seems very very light on the receiver codes...

Sony receiver/amp codes:
601, 602, 603

Hope it works!

Bingo, the first LG code worked for my TV. It appears Sony only supports Sony branded receivers as I cannot find codes for my Yamaha.

So close to having 1 remote to control them all.

Fantastic. That was what I figured. Silly for Sony not to post it online though. It's not as if it wasn't done in a PDF or printable format to begin with!

Well, you would think Sony would go though the 2 minute bother of scanning and putting a PDF of the instructions on the web. But no they didn't as of 2 months ago.

Gimme a while, I'll try and find my copy again and get you the code.
