Sony RM-VLZ260 Remote
If you have not done so already, turn the receiver on that you want to program the RM-VLZ260 to work with. Once it is on, press the “SET" button on the remote and wait for the indicator light to turn on. While still holding “SET," press the “CBL" button.
If your receiver comes directly from DirecTV, the codes available for you to try are: “40099," “40566," “40749," “41377," “41414," “41442" and “41749." Type each of these codes in using the remote’s number pad until one works. Unfortunately, once you enter a code you must perform the entire procedure again any time you try to enter a new code.
For a receiver you purchased yourself that is manufactured by Panasonic (indicated by “Panasonic" appearing on the receiver), the code you have to enter is “40847." The codes you can use for a Sony receiver are: “40847," 40853," “41558" and “41979." Again, you must repeat the entire procedure each time you try a new code.
After entering a code, the “SET" indicator light flashes three times and then turns off. At this point, you can press the “Power" button on the RM-VLZ260 to see if it turns the receiver off. If it does, you are set. If it does not, you need to try the different codes until it does.
