How to Program the Radio Shack 15-1994 Remote

15-1994.jpg

This manual is designed to show you everything that this remote is capable of doing, including functions not specified in the original manual. You can review the original manual here. This remote dates from around 1999, so the built-in code database is quite dated now, however new codes can be added using JP1.

Contents

Programming Setup Codes

Once you've found the setup codes for your devices, either from the user manual or online, use the following instructions to enter them into your remote.

  • TAP the button for the device you want to program, (TV, VCR, CABLE, etc.).
  • PRESS and HOLD the SETUP button until the red LED flashes twice, then release.
  • ENTER the 4 digit setup code for your device.
  • You should receive 2 quick flashes after entering your code.
  • TAP the POWER button to test the code. (For some devices, use PLAY instead)

Note: The SETUP button is the green "P" button in the top left corner.

Using the Sleep Key

The SLEEP key allows you to access the sleep timer of your original device. If your device has a built-in sleep timer, this will normally be mapped to the SLEEP button of your remote. If your original device does not have a built-in sleep timer, the SLEEP button will use the 15-1994's own built-in sleep timer. Refer to the original manual for your device to work its timer, or use the following instructions to use the 15-1994's built-in timer.

  • TAP the device (TV, VCR, CABLE, etc.) button
  • TAP the SLEEP key once to set the built in sleep timer for 15 minutes.
  • Each additional TAP of the SLEEP key will add 15 more minutes to the sleep timer, up to a maximum of 60 minutes.
  • To deactivate the built-in sleep timer, TAP any key other than SLEEP.

NOTE: Once you have activated the remote's built-in sleep timer, you must keep the remote pointed directly at the component. Once the specified time has elapsed, the 15-1994 will activate the POWER button to power off your device.

How To Use The SHIFT function

It is possible to store two commands on one button by using the SHIFT key, the SETUP button acts as a shift key on these remotes. During the process of programming individual buttons, whether by learning or by using advanced codes, if you TAP SETUP before selecting the button where the command will be assigned, the function will be stored on the shifted version of the button. Then when you wish to use the button, TAP SETUP before you TAP the button. Shifted keys can be used for learned commands, commands programmed using advanced codes and for macros.

Using shifted buttons is a very good idea for macros as macros are effective in all device modes. If you program a power macro (ie, one that will either turn everything on, or turn everything off, you might want to program this macro to the shift/POWER button.

NOTE: Shifed numeric keys: You can program functions to shifted numeric keys using the procedure outlined above, but in order to actually use the shifted function you will need to TAP the SETUP button twice before TAPing the numeric key that holds the shifted function, otherwise the remote thinks you are about to enter an advanced code.

Note: The SETUP button is the green "P" button in the top left corner.

990 - Code Blink back

Blinking Back the Setup Code

  • TAP the device, (TV, VCR, CABLE, etc.), button
  • PRESS and HOLD the SETUP button until the red LED flashes twice, then release.
  • TAP 9 - 9 - 0.
  • TAP 1, carefully COUNT the number of blinks. (1st digit)
  • TAP 2, carefully COUNT the number of blinks. (2nd digit)
  • TAP 3, carefully COUNT the number of blinks. (3rd digit)
  • TAP 4, carefully COUNT the number of blinks. (4th digit)

If the remote DOES NOT blink it means the number is 0.
This is your 4-digit setup code.

991 - Code Search

Searching For Your Setup Code

If you have tried all of the set-up codes for your brand of equipment, or your brand is not listed, and you are still not able to get the unit to respond, try the following procedure to search for your code.

If you don't find a code that works, the remote will flash four times when you reach the end of all the codes for this device type.

  • TAP the button for the device you want to program, (TV, VCR, CABLE, etc.).
  • PRESS and HOLD the SETUP button until the red LED flashes twice, then release.
  • ENTER 9-9-1 (two blinks on the remote)
  • ALTERNATE slowly between the POWER key and the DEVICE (TV, VCR, CABLE, etc.) button until your device turns off. (On VCR, LD, and CD players use PLAY instead of POWER)
Make sure that the remote is pointed at your device during the search, You may have to TAP this sequences of buttons up to 100 times to search the entire library of codes.
  • When your device turns OFF, TAP the SETUP button to lock in the code for your device.

992 - Key Remap

Redefining a Device Key

If you wish to use a device key for something other than it's intended purpose, you can change it's functionality. For example, if you have two VCR's but don't have a cable box, you could change the CABLE button to be a second VCR button.

  • PRESS and HOLD the SETUP button until the red LED flashes twice, then release.
  • TAP 9 - 9 - 2.
  • TAP the "from" DEVICE, (ie, the one you are copying from)
  • TAP the "to" DEVICE (ie, the one you want to replace).

Example: If you want the AUX key to be a VCR key:
"SETUP" (2 blinks) 9 - 9 - 2, VCR (you want to copy VCR)
Then AUX (you want to replace AUX).

Note: The PLUG & POWER device button is designed to work with X10 devices and cannot be remapped using 992. It is hard wired to be a CD/Audio button, so if you don't want to use it for X10, you could use it to control a CD player or audio receiver. It can be remapped using JP1.

Resetting a Device Key

Use this procedure to return a device key to it's original function.

  • PRESS and HOLD the SETUP button until the red LED flashes twice, then release.
  • TAP 9 - 9 - 2.
  • TAP the device button twice. - Two blinks.

The device key is now returned to it's original mode.

Setting Up DVD Players

DVD players need to be setup on a "VCR" button, so if you wish to use the AUX1 button (for example) you will need to reassign it to be a VCR button first using the 992 command (see below), then you would assign the device code for you player.

If you are using the original Radio Shack manual for setup codes, please be aware that the DVD codes are mixed in with the Laser Disc codes.

To Program the AUX1 button for DVD:

  • PRESS and HOLD the SETUP button until the red LED flashes twice, then release.
  • TAP 9 - 9 - 2, two flashes.
  • TAP the VCR device button,
  • TAP the AUX1 device button (or whatever device button you would like to use for the DVD player), two flashes.

993 - Volume Punch Through

Setting Volume Punch Through (VPT)

This sets Volume to work for one device in all modes. For example, the TV volume will work in the cable and VCR modes.

  • TAP the device (TV, VCR, CABLE, etc.) button
  • PRESS and HOLD the SETUP button until the red LED flashes twice, then release.
  • TAP 9 - 9 - 3.
  • TAP the device key you would like the volume to come from.
  • Two blinks.

NOTE #1: This only sets volume in the TV, VCR and CBL/SAT mode.
NOTE #2: You can only punch the volume though to the TV.
Remember, if the volume punch through doesn't meet your needs, you can always program the volume controls using KEY MOVES. For instance, if you want the volume controls in CD mode to work your amplifier which is on the AUX button, then you would use the 994 command and move the 3 volume controls from AUX to CD. You could also learn the volume buttons from your original remote.
NOTE #3: When programmed using JP1, VPT can be set to any device (including AUX and CD), not just TV, but it is still only effective in TV, VCR and CBL/SAT modes.

Restore Volume Default - One Device

Use this to get the original volume to work on a single device.

  • TAP the device (TV, VCR, CABLE, etc.) button
  • PRESS and HOLD the SETUP button until the red LED flashes twice, then release.
  • TAP 9 - 9 - 3
  • TAP the VOLUME- key, you will get four blinks.

Restore Volume Default - All Devices

Use this to get the original volume to work on each device.

  • PRESS and HOLD the SETUP button until the red LED flashes twice, then release.
  • TAP 9 - 9 - 3
  • TAP the VOLUME+ key, you will get four blinks.

Now the volume is set for all original devices.

994 - Keymover

Copy One Key To Another

  • PRESS and HOLD the SETUP button until the red LED flashes twice, then release.
  • TAP 9 - 9 - 4.
  • TAP the DEVICE and the FROM button
  • TAP the DEVICE and the TO button - two Blinks

EXAMPLE: To take the volume from a TV and put it in the VCR mode, it would be: SETUP - 9 - 9 - 4 -TV - VOL UP - VCR- VOL UP - two blinks. You would have to do the same process for VOL DOWN and MUTE.

NOTE: To assign as advanced code to a 'shift' key, simply TAP SETUP before TAPing the key in step 4 above.

  • PRESS and HOLD the SETUP button until the red LED flashes twice, then release.
  • TAP 9 - 9 - 6
  • TAP and release SETUP, then PRESS and HOLD SETUP until the red light blinks twice again.

970 - Activate the Sleep Key

If the SLEEP button is programmed to work the internal sleep timer of your device, but you would prefer to use the remote's built in sleep timer, you can activate or de-activate it with the following procedure:

  • TAP the device (TV, VCR, CABLE, etc.) button
  • PRESS and HOLD the SETUP button until the red LED flashes twice, then release.
  • TAP 9 - 7 - 0.
(Two flashes mean the built-in timer has been activated, four flashes mean it has been de-activated).

975 - Learning Functions

If there is a botton on your original remote that is not present on your universal, or the button on the universal does not function properly, you can learn the commands from your original remote. There are four buttons specially assigned for learning (the four 'S' or 'L' buttons) but you can actually learn to any button on the remote (except SLEEP, FAV/SCAN and the device keys).

Line up your original remote and the head-to-head before completing the following steps.

  • PRESS and HOLD the SETUP button until the red LED flashes twice.
  • TAP 9 - 7 - 5, the red LED will flash twice.
  • TAP the DEVICE key where you wish to learn the function.
The next 3 steps must be completed within 10 seconds.
  • TAP the button that will receive the learned function, the LED will flash radidly.
  • TAP the button on the original remote to be learned.

Now you can repeat steps 3 through 5 to learn other functions onto other keys or PRESS and HOLD SETUP until the remote's red light flashes twice to lock in your new feature. (If the red light does not blink twice, stop and repeat steps through 6).

To test the new feature, TAP and release the device key in which the new feature was learned followed by the key on which the feature was learned.

NOTE: To learn to a 'shift' key, simply TAP SETUP before TAPing the key in step 4 above.

976 - Delete A Learned Function

  • TAP the device (TV, VCR, CABLE, etc.) button
  • PRESS and HOLD the SETUP button until the red LED flashes twice, then release.
  • TAP 9 - 7 - 6
  • TAP the button you want to clear twice. - Two blinks.

NOTE: To deleted a 'shift' key, TAP SETUP between the two TAPes of the button that you want to clear.

980 - Clearing Out All Assigned Keys

  • TAP the device, (TV, VCR, CABLE, etc.), button
  • PRESS and HOLD the SETUP button until the red LED flashes twice, then release.
  • TAP 9 - 8 - 0 -- Two blinks.

NOTE: This will not clear the codes assigned to the device buttons and it won't remove any upgrades that have been added. It's NOT a full factory reset.

981 - Restoring Factory Defaults

  • PRESS and HOLD the SETUP button until the red LED flashes twice, then RELEASE.
  • TAP 9 - 8 - 1 -- Two blinks.
