In today's world of numerous electronic devices, your living room can quickly become overrun by remote controls. A few types of devices that typically require remote controls include TVs, DVD players, Blu-ray players, audio receivers, VCRs, cable boxes, and iPod docks--and the list goes on. Even if you only have a few of these devices, it can mean upwards of three or four remotes floating around your living room. If you have a Vizio or an LG TV and you want to program a universal remote control to operate it, all you need are the manufacturer codes.

Turn on your TV (if you have more than one, you must turn them on one at a time) and then program your universal remote to control the TV by initializing the programming mode on the remote. (See the remote's documentation for instructions.) Once initialized, enter each code until your TV powers off and then turn off the programming mode. Your universal remote control is now programmed for your TV.
