Universal remote controls make up the majority of the remotes that come with cable TV service. It follows that you can program your cable TV remote to operate your television, as well as other audio and video equipment, in addition to your cable box. Entering the TV manufacturer code for the brand of television you are programming the remote to link to is the fastest way to get your remote to work with your TV. To program your remote, you don’t necessarily need to know this code; it just takes longer when you don’t.
