Have you tried the scanning method outlined in the operating manual for the remote? Have you tried the link in post 10 via "contact us"?

SA 8300HD remote programming problem

I've just bought the SA 8300HD STB from videotron and can't get the remote to recognize: TV - Viewsonic N428P, Onkyo Receiver TX-SR605, Pioneer DVR. I've tried scanning method for each and Videotron tech support says I'm just out of luck. Is there anything more to be tried or done?

SA 8300HD remote programming problem

Patience paid off. With persistent tries using the scanning method suggested in the manual, I've been able to programme my remote to recognize all of the items in my system (Onkyo receiver, Viewsonic TV, Pioneer DVR). None of the codes in the manual worked. The key to using the scanning method is to hold the "Ch+" for a long time. That did the trick. I find it strange that Videotron tech support threw in the towel so quickly during my call. Good thing that I didn't listen to them!
