I have a 20.1 and was able to edit a pre-programmed code for my LG TV. It's true that you do need a working remote to edit the pre-programmed code, though. The only learning function is from another remote. If you don't have that, you're stuck with whatever function set the pre-programmed code provides.
For me a bigger problem was that you must teach it every function from your other remote in a single learning session. You can't add/edit a few functions, test them, then start a new learning session to add or edit more functions. Each time you start a learning session, the remote erases all previously learned functions for that device.
That's especially annoying if you don't
have a pre-programmed code to edit (as happened with my DVD recorder) and so must teach it every function from another remote. You'll probably need to write down every function to be learned on a sheet of paper before beginning the learning session so you won't miss anything. Otherwise, if you make a mistake or change your mind, you'll have to start from scratch.Edited by JHBrandt - 7/10/13 at 8:47am
