    I cannot remember how to encode the generic TV remote control (RCA
    Systemlink 4.) I believe there is a sequence that involves the
    buttons labelled ON/OFF, Code Search, TV and one other button. Plus
    keeping the button(s) pressed until the LED blinks or stops blinking.

    Can anyone help?

    Thanks for the link. One of the variations eventually worked (TV must
    be on.) I wish the manufacturer would emboss the instructions on the
    inside battery cover where it cannot be misplaced or thrown away.
  3. Take a marker, and write the key details on the inside of the battery cover.
    Plus the codes for things you have. Then file the instruction book in a
    safe place, one that you will be able to get to when needed.

    I got a universal remote last year, and I did this. I could easily dig out
    the book when I got a used VCR last week, but I can also easily reprogram
    the remote if I need to change the batteries, or some glitch happens. And
    inside the battery compartment, the writing is less likely to wear off.

    I used a silver Sharpie, that does stand out well on the black plastic.

    One might also put a tag on the line cord of each device, as it enters the
    unit, with such information.

  4. AMEN!!

    With 6 different remotes floating around our house, it is hard to even
    keep the instructions together in one place so they can be found when
    needed. Thank goodness we don't have any pets who like to chew on
