Instructions to setup Charter Remote:
Turn on the device you wish to program and aim the remote at that device.
On the remote control, press a device key once (i.e., AUX, DVD, TV, DBL, or STB); it blinks once. Then press and hold SET UP until the selected mode key blinks twice.
Use the "Manufacturer's Codes" (on manual) to locate the type of device and brand name and then enter the first five-digit code for your device. For Sanyo, 11142 code will most likely work. If performed correctly, the selected mode key blinks twice. Note: If the selected mode key emits a long blink, the entry is invalid. Repeat steps 2 through 3 and try entering the same code again.
Aim the remote control at the device and 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 that works. If it still does not respond, try searching for the code. Note: If the device does not have a PWR key, press the Play key.
Of interest, a new interface lets you control devices in your home, from resetting the thermometer to changing the channel on your TV with simply voice commands or hand gestures. Check out this new technology at Mashable.
