just acquired a new tv that I would like to program the portal remote to run the tv. Can you send instructions either by pdf or a link?
The fact that it flashes 5 times like that tells me it may be a battery issue. When you press any button normally, does it also flash 5 times or more? On the Arris remotes the power button flashes more times on every button press as the battery gets weaker (up to a maximum of 6 I believe). Ideally you are looking for the power button to only flash once when you press any button. I would try swapping out the batteries then trying the procedure listed on urcsupport again, I'm pretty sure you will get better results.
Here's the link thru urcsupport.com, the manufacture of the remotes we use.
Shaw Arris MP2000 Setup
I tried the second step and can not get the asked-for response from the remote:
Press and hold in the MENU and OK buttons until the Power button flashes twice and release both buttons.
Mine flashes one long, and that is it, until I release both buttons and then I get 5 short flashes - tried it on many different codes for my Hitachi big screen, but I suspect it is not the codes that are the problem.
Boom! Changing the batteries solved the problem! Thanks!!
