...I listened to your advice and purchased a Philips SRP5107 from my local Walmart store. I had no problem programming my TV since they showed the code. I also had no problem programing my DVD player and my Samsung Blu-Ray player both using the learning function. However I can only program the power button on my 2160A using my new 535 remote control. Only the power button will turn on and off my Recorder but none of the other function will work. This problem is only with my 2160A unit. Am I doing something wrong? Thanks for any help.
...It may also be that the remote control learn memory is full (a total of about 60 buttons can be learned). In this case you can reset one or more buttons to their original functions in order to create memory space.
For this, see chapter 3.4.
If code 1056 doesn't work, try deleting all, or part, of the LEARNED buttons from the two that you've already programmed and see what happens. Perhaps you've already used all 60 available slots?!?
