NOTE:You must program each piece of equipment using the correct device indicator listed in the tables below. If you have two devices that use the same indicator, you can program the second device as AUX. You can delete a programmed device from the remote control. Program the device using device code 0000. This is useful for deleting an audio device so the volume and mute buttons control the TV speakers instead of controlling the audio system.
