A Polaroid universal remote can be synced with four different types of electronic devices at one time. This remote lets you perform actions such as changing the channels on a television set and turning on a DVD player without having to switch between multiple remotes. Unlike many universal remotes on the market, the Polaroid remote does not have a "Code Search" key. You must manually enter the programming mode on the Polaroid remote in order to sync it with different devices.
