How to program a universal ceiling fan remote (or other) with a TV

How do I program my universal remote to work with my TV?

You can program your universal remote for use with a TV set. In order to do so, you will need to know the programming code to enter on the remote in order to sync it with the TV. To find that, you may need to check the instructions that came with the manual. If you can’t find it there, look on the manufacturer website of both the remote as well as the TV. You’ll need the programming code or you’re sunk.

Once you have the code, try the below. Note that sometimes these instructions will change based on the remote
that you hold in your hand. First, press and hold the TV button. The LED light will come on. Don’t let go of
the button while programming. Enter the programming code. Keep holding the TV button. Once the code is entered,
the LED light will go out and come back on.

Once that is done, release the TV Button. If there is an error the TV remote will flash. Depending upon the manufacturer,
it may flash 3 times, 4 times, or other. If it has worked you should now be able to change the channel on your TV.
