"Learning" remote controls retrieve information transmitted from other remote controls and store the codes so they can control that remote's devices. Learning remotes pick up the commands other remotes send out, allowing the user to control various devices without having to program the information from a number of devices into one remote -- a step that would otherwise be necessary. All learning remotes fall under the umbrella of universal remotes because they can control a number of devices.
