If you wish to use a third-party universal remote, you can try using the number 1 as the code in step 4. This is the most common setting that remote manufacturers use when programming Bell Satellite TV remotes. If that doesn’t work, please check with your remote’s manufacturer to get help as Bell cannot support remotes that we do not provide.
