There are a couple of different resets. I'll go from the least destructive to the most complete reset.
You can clear the keymoves for individual devices:
1. Press the button for the device you want to clear (ie TV, CBL, AUX)
2. Press and hold SETUP until two blinks.
3. Type 994 (remote will blink twice)
4. Press the device button twice
The remote will blink twice
If you want to clear all the programming, ie keymoves, macros, learned keys:
1. Press and hold SETUP until two blinks.
2. Type 980
The remote will blink four timesCAUTION:
it will also clear any macros the cable company might have put in the remote. I know my Comcast remote has a macro for the "On Demand" button, and it has an upgrade for a cable box. If you do clear the "On Demand" macro, it's simply the following keys: "CABLE", "1", "OK/SELECT", so you can reprogram it yourself.
If you want to clear all the programming, and reset the device codes to the default setting, do as above, except use "977" for step 2. Also, the same caution as above.
If you want to clear EVERYTHING, including device code assignment, and device upgrades, do the same as above except use "981" for step 2.CAUTION:
in addition to clearing the macros, it will also clear any device upgrade that the cable company might have put in the remote. On my Comcast remote, there is a "1376" device number upgrade that the remote uses for the cable box. This reset will clear that and you'd need a JP1.2 cable to upload that back on the remote.
I would think you'd probably want to do the first reset if you were playing around with keymoves. If you want to do a more thorough reset, you might do a 980 or a 977 reset and you can reprogram the macro for "On Demand" (or not, if you don't really use it). I wouldn't do the 981 reset though, unless you have a JP1.2 cable.
