How to Program a Time Warner Cable Remote for a Sharp LCD TV

Your Time Warner Cable remote control can be used with electronic devices other than the cable box. The remote can also control a Sharp LCD TV. This will give you the option of putting the Sharp LCD TV's remote away and only using the Time Warner Cable remote for your cable box and television set. Before you can use the Time Warner remote with any Sharp TV, you must first program that remote with the television.
