HELP! Programming Homelink Visor with DoorKing Gate

i've got a homelink transmitter in my visor and just moved to a new place that has gated entry. i've programmed garage door openers and things fine in my homelink visor but haven't been able to program the gate to this new place.

the remote they gave me was a doorking microplus if that helps at all. i searched and found an old post (Anyone know how to set the Home link system?) but it didn't really provide any info and it is dated.

anyone know if i can program a doorking remote into my homelink visor? it's either a specific digital code that isn't programmable or its a rolling code that i'd need to press a learn button (but don't have access to since it's the property's gate) or it's just a rolling code that is tough to program. any help would be much appreciated! thanks

Have you tried aiming the remote at your homelink and then hitting the homelink button so it can learn the signal? Or, when you open the gate, hit the remote and the homelink button at the same time. Don't know if that will help the homelink learn the code.
When I did my garage, for some reason it would not take on #1, but did take on #2. Try another button, one of the few things on the car you can do for free!!
Regards,
Jerry

well i was specifically asking about being able to do doorking remotes or if it wasn't compatible b/c i'm thinking that my property has remotes that don't allow copying b/c i have programmed garage doors and other things fine before.
