A universal remote control can make using your home theater setup much more enjoyable by eliminating the need to use several different remotes. Before you can begin using a universal remote, however, you must first program the codes for the devices you want it to control. To set up your universal remote to control a Sanyo TV, you need the Sanyo TV device codes.
Insert two AA batteries into the universal remote control if you haven't already done so and then turn on your Sanyo TV. Press and hold the "TV" button on the remote until it lights up.
Input the following three-digit codes into your remote control one by one using the remote keypad: "004," "013," "049," "108," "110," "180" and "209." The TV will turn off when you enter the correct code for your particular Sanyo model.
Press the "TV" button on the remote once more to confirm the code after you've identified the correct one. You can now use the universal remote to control your Sanyo TV.
