yay, tonight i found something ive been looking for (for months): programming instructions for my vcr remote... sure sounds like an easy task, right? well, philips main site had never heard of my remote and multiple searches of the internet returned nothing useful about my particular remote. but, if you read the fine print on the philips site, all manuals for models manufactured before 2001 are actually stored on a different site. *sigh* so i found them and have now printed enough copies to put about everywhere i keep important papers, including taping one to the vcr itself! i will never get up to touch the tv again!
