The Scientific Atlanta 8300 HDC is a high-definition receiver that comes with a built-in DVR (digital video recorder). This allows you to record programming onto its built-in hard drive in order to save television shows you want to view later. The Scientific Atlanta 8300 HDC does come with a provided remote control, and you can even program additional hardware into the remote (such as a TV or Blu-ray player). However, if you want to program a new device into the remote you need to reset its currently saved settings.

Skill level:


  1. 1

    Power on the new device you want to program the Scientific Atlanta HDC 8300 to.

  2. 2

    Press down the button that represents the hardware you want to program and reset (such as "TV" or "DVD").

  3. 3

    Push down "Code." Hold it down until the LED button on the front of the remote control says lit. This activates a code search feature on the remote control.

  4. 4

    Point the remote control and the new device, then push the "Up" button. This scrolls through the program codes saved on the remote. Continue pressing the button until the desired hardware powers down. This is the correct code, which resets the currently saved information and uploads the new hardware to the remote control
