    ok i search on here cause i am embarrassed to ask it cause i know i know the answer but could someone please explain to me what a learning remote is. Is it just a programmable remote?

    A learning remote can 'learn' the IR codes (keypresses) of another remote.

    You would put the learning remote into 'learn mode' for the desired button and hold the other remote a couple of inches away and press the button you wish to learn from.

    Head on over to remote central for all the info you could imagine:

    Luke, welcome from a fellow HTFer born in the land of 10,000 lakes (Minneapolis).

    The only dumb question is the one unasked.
