For the benefit of someone else who may be looking for the same info at a later date, please post the details /procedures you used / and or link to this info....
I hope the following does help someone else as you suggested. What I am still wondering is which of the clock remotes discussed above would do the best job of controlling the DTVPal for time shifting to a VCR?
Now on to what I did. I discovered that additional attempts based on what is in my original owners manual worked. I did take both remotes to my dinning table this time rather than leaving them laying on the bed. If you no longer have your manual, this site has it and this particular part of the instructions is item 17 here http://www.hifi-remote.com/manuals/rs-l2.shtml?15-2103
I had gone to the site mentioned above based on one post and then came to this one http://www.avsforum.com/avs-vb/showt...1#post15506073
from 3FingeredGlove. Trying to manually enter the address as posted by 3FingeredGlove in the address bar got me a 404 Page Not Found but I could not identify what the error was after closely comparing what was in my history from earlier. So, mine might result in the same thing. If so, I would suggest starting with the home page rather than the part about manuals and work your way through the site. I have copied and pasted just item 17 here:
If there is a button 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.
1. PRESS and HOLD the SETUP button until the red LED flashes twice.
2. PRESS 9 - 7 - 5, the red LED will flash twice.
3. PRESS the DEVICE key where you wish to learn the function.
The next 3 steps must be completed within 10 seconds.
4. PRESS the button that will receive the learned function, the LED will flash rapidly.
5. PRESS 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 Cinema'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, press 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 press SETUP before pressing the key in step 4 above.
