Text about a home control system linked to a TV set "Sämtliche von Ihnen für diese Anlage eingelernten Funktionen können hiermit gemeinsam ein-/ausgeschaltet werden, sofern sie im Empfangsbereich liegen." I dont think the einlernen means learned, but maybe understood or something along those lines?? Any ideas?

(equipment) training


Explanation:
einlernen is the same as anlernen, according to my Wahrig dictionary.
It means train, break in, or educate. From the context, I assume it means something like "the features you learned in training".

Taught-in


Explanation:
Teaching-in is the "industry" expression for things like CNC machinery. May fit well in this context too.
