Larry M, thanks for the link pointer. But my question is how does one program the device, and does it actually come with a book that lists the code to enter for all of those different sets? I own a device that reads the code transmitted by a remote and uses that to figure which code listing to use, but if I had the original remote I would not have the problem. Our other "universl" remote should be marked "fairly universal", since it does not include a number of types, and the listing for mine does not work. That is the other problem with universal remotes is that not everything in the book works.
I had a somewhat similar problem with a hi-8 player years back. I bought the unit used and it came with no remote. I wasn't too concerned about that. It wasn't until later that I discovered that there were certain operations that only the remote would do. This particular remote cost more than I spent on the player itself. I wish they wouldn't do things like that...lol
"All" is a large and potentially infinite number. It's worked on everything we've tried so far. These remotes have been around for a while and there are probably new devices around which aren't covered.
In a bid to boost the viability of lithium-based electric car batteries, a team at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory has developed a chemistry that could possibly double an EV’s driving range while cutting its battery cost in half.
Using Siemens NX software, a team of engineering students from the University of Michigan built an electric vehicle and raced in the 2013 Bridgestone World Solar Challenge. One of those students blogged for Design News throughout the race.
Robots that walk have come a long way from simple barebones walking machines or pairs of legs without an upper body and head. Much of the research these days focuses on making more humanoid robots. But they are not all created equal.
For industrial control applications, or even a simple assembly line, that machine can go almost 24/7 without a break. But what happens when the task is a little more complex? That’s where the “smart” machine would come in. The smart machine is one that has some simple (or complex in some cases) processing capability to be able to adapt to changing conditions. Such machines are suited for a host of applications, including automotive, aerospace, defense, medical, computers and electronics, telecommunications, consumer goods, and so on. This discussion will examine what’s possible with smart machines, and what tradeoffs need to be made to implement such a solution.
