Instructions for setting up the

Sony RM-V310

7 Component Universal Remote Control

This remote has one big, BIG problem. I've found that the number buttons don't work in Sony VCR modes. This makes it useless for setting VCR timers and for controlling special features on my Nakamichi remotes. Other than that, this is a solid feeling remote.

1) Find the Component Code number for the desired Device from the table below.

Component Code
Sony Beta VCR
Sony 8mm VCR
Sony LDP


2) On the Sony RM-V310 remote press and hold the small black SET button in the upper left corner. While holding the SET button down, press and release the green POWER button. Now release the SET button.

3) Press and release the VCR button.

4) Enter the three digit Component Code on the remotes number pad followed by the ENT button.

The VCR preset should now be set.
