Setup (Programming Device Control)
The Atlas 5-Device Remote Control is preprogrammed to operate the cable box (converter)
provided by your cable system, an RCA TV, a Toshiba
DVD player, an RCA VCR, and a Pioneer audio receiver.
To control devices other than the default brands,
perform the following steps; otherwise skip this section.
NOTES: For control of a Combo device (for example, a
TV/VCR combo), skip this section and perform
the instructions on “Setting Up a Combo
Unit” in the manual. If you have another brand of cable converter
or a satellite receiver you would like to control,
you’ll need to unlock the cable ID Lock before
changing the converter code (see “Programming
Cable ID Lock” in the manual).

selected mode key blinks twice.

press PWR once. The device should turn off. If
it does not, repeat steps 2 through 3, trying
each code for your brand until you find one

searching for the code (see “Searching for
NOTE: If the device does not have a PWR key, press
the PLAY key.
- Repeat steps 1 through 4 for each device you
want the remote control to operate. For future
reference, write down each working device
code in the boxes on the following page.
