Programming TV with 5-mode Remote - Copy "Video Source" Button

I'm trying to find a way to copy the "Video Source" button's functionality from my TV input to my CBL input. I know this should be possible, but I'm not sure of the sequence of buttons to make this work. I've already gone through the remote's documentation to no avail. Anyone know?

Despite the full PDF manual saying the "1056" remote only has 2 programmable Macro Keys ([MUSIC] and [HD]), re-programming the [VIDEO SOURCE] button can achieved in the same manner. I tested this out this evening:


STEP#1: Clear the [VIDEO SOURCE] key:

  1. Press [CBL] to ensure on Cable Mode
  2. Hold down [SETUP] until it blinks twice
  3. Enter [9][9][5] (2 blinks again)
  4. Press [VIDEO SOURCE]
  5. Hold [SETUP] until it blinks twice to exit Setup.

STEP#2: Program the Macro to a key:

  1. Press [CBL] to ensure on Cable Mode
  2. Hold down [SETUP] until it blinks twice
  3. Enter [9][9][5] (2 blinks again)
  4. Press Key to be programmed, [VIDEO SOURCE]
  5. Program Key by pressing: [TV] [VIDEO SOURCE] [CBL]
  6. Hold [SETUP] until it blinks twice to exit Setup.

STEP#3: Test

I'm not 100% sure what you're trying to do, but if you just want to change the "video source" (input) to your TV with the Rogers remote, all you should have to do is press the "TV" button and then the "Video Source" button. That works on the Panason and Sony TVs I have.

I know this works, but I'm trying to speed it up a bit more. Just trying to copy that functionality over to the CBL input, so that I don't have to switch to TV first.

Re: Programming TV with 5-mode Remote - Copy "Video Source" Button

That used to be the way I did it before I learned about EFC codes. I learned about programming a remote on a site called JP1 or JPI or something. Basically I did some research, found the EFC code for video source for my tv brand and programmed it into the key in a skmilar way as a macro, however the only diference is the remote stays in CBL mode infact it stays in what ever mode it was last in use, which is not possible withthe macro method. Ie: when I used The macro method and was in dvd mode, iT would change to tv mode i know its only one buton extra to press but since i figured how to get it to work why not eh
