URC2981: How can I delete a learned key on my OFA8?

If you would like to delete a learned function that you no longer require, please follow the procedure outlined below:

  1. Select the corresponding device mode (e.g.TV)
  2. Press and hold down the MAGIC key until the red LED underneath the POWER key blinks twice (the red LED will blink once then twice).
  3. Press 9 7 6.
  4. Press the key to be deleted (e.g. red key) twice.

Additional Information:

  • You can delete a learned key by overwriting it with a new learned function.
  • The instructions above are a recent update on the latest OFA 8 remote that is now available in the market. This means that the learning feature will only work for OFA 8 with chip number R03 (Where can I find the product & chip no?). Please keep in mind that OFA 8 remote controls with the following chip numbers R00, R01 and R02 do not have the learning feature.
