I have that remote, or should say, had. It is not learning, there are
no commands you can put into it to make it work as an IR keyboard. It
has the blank block inside the battery compartment for a JP1 connector
but it is not installed and it would take dismantling the remote to add
I'm using a URC-8910 which has both learning modes as well as the JP1
connector for programming via software. I would suggest either using
LIRC to work with your remote or changing remotes.
