universal remote question

Can a universal remote's dvd/vcr key be used to program soundbars? I've got a rcr313br remote and want to program a remote to it, or does it have to be an Aux key?

Also, can cable box remotes be programmed for that? I've got a couple cable box remotes that I think I can program to control the tv, and it has aux key also...

If the remote can "learn" the other device's IR codes you should be able to program any key to do any function.

It depends on the remote.

On some only a TV dataset can be assigned to the TV button, only a VCR dataset can be assigned to the VCR button, etc.

On some, any data set can be assigned to any source button (TV, VCR, aux, etc.)
