  • Programming the Remote Control
    There are two ways you can program your remote control:

    The Pre-Programmed 3-Digit Code Method
    The Auto-Search Method


    The Pre-Programmed 3-Digit Code Method allows you to setup all the buttons for a device by entering 3-digit code numbers that correspond to a particular Component's manufacturer/brand.

    The Auto-Search Method scans through all the codes in the remote control in order to find the correct code for your device.

    IMPORTANT SETUP NOTE!
    In this section when you are instructed to press a [DEVICE] button, that means to press either the CBL, TV, or DVD/VCR button, depending on what device you are programming the remote to operate.

    When you are in setup mode, the Device LED will light for 30 seconds. If you do not press a button within 30 seconds, the LED light will turn off and exit setup mode. You will need to start the programming process over if this occurs.
  • Pre-Programmed 3-Digit Code Programming Method

    STEP 1 Turn on the equipment that you want the remote control to operate (Cable Box, TV, VCR, DVD).

    STEP 2 Press the [DEVICE] button and the [OK/SEL] button simultaneously for three seconds. The corresponding device LED will turn on indicating that the remote is in the programming mode. The LED will remain on for 30 seconds and the next step must be entered while the LED is on.

    STEP 3 Point the remote control toward the equipment and enter the three-digit code number assigned to your brand device (codes can be found in the code tables in the user guide or online). If there are more than one three-digit number listed for your brand, try one code number at a time until your equipment turns off.

    Note: When the equipment turns off you can verify that you have selected the correct code by pressing the [MUTE] button. The equipment should turn back on. Then try all of the functions on the remote control (i.e. volume, mute, etc.) to ensure you have the correct code. If any of the functions do not operate as they should, repeat the instructions from STEP 3 above using the next three digit code number from the brand list.

    STEP 4 Store the three-digit code by pressing the same [DEVICE] button once again. The device LED will blink twice to confirm that the code has been stored.

  • Auto-Search Programming Method
    If the Pre-Programmed 3-digit code method is unsuccessful or the code table does not list your brand, you can use the Auto Search Method to find the correct three-digit code number for your equipment by following these steps:

    STEP 1 Turn on the equipment that you want the remote control to operate (Cable Box, TV, VCR, DVD).

    STEP 2 Press the [DEVICE] button and the [OK/SEL] button simultaneously for three seconds. The corresponding device LED will turn on indicating that the remote is in the programming mode. The LED will remain on for 30 seconds and the next step must be entered while the LED is on.

    STEP 3 Press the [CH+] or [CH-] button one at a time or keep it pressed. The remote will emit a series of Power ON/OFF commands. Release the [CH+] or [CH-] button as soon as the equipment turns off.

    Note: When the equipment turns off you can verify that you have selected the correct code by pressing the [POWER] button. The equipment should turn back on. Then try all of the functions on the remote control (i.e. volume, mute, etc.) to ensure you have the correct code. If any of the functions do not operate as they should, turn the device back on and repeat the instructions from STEP 3 to continue the Auto Search Method.

    STEP 4 Store the three-digit code by pressing the same [DEVICE] button once again. The device LED will blink twice to confirm that the code has been stored.
  • To Identify the 3-Digit Code Programmed for a Device
    The 3-Digit code that is programmed into the remote can be identified by following these steps:

    STEP 1 Press the [DEVICE] button and the [OK/SEL] button simultaneously for three seconds.

    STEP 2 Press the [INFO] button. The Device LED will blink a number of times indicating the number for each digit for the code. Each digit is separated by a one second interval of the LED being off.

    Example: One blink, (pause) three blinks, (pause) eight blinks indicates code number 138.

    Note: Ten blinks indicates the number 0.
  • Programming Volume Control
    Volume and Mute control are automatically transferred to the respective Device Mode you select, as follows:

    CBL: Cable Set-top Box

    If you wish to store the TV volume controls in the CBL mode use the following steps:

    STEP 1 Press the [OK/SEL] button and [CBL] button simultaneously for three seconds. The device LED will turn on for 30 seconds. The next step must be performed while the LED is on.

    STEP 2 Press the [VOL+] button. The device LED will blink.

    STEP 3 Press [TV] button. The device LED will blink twice to confirm the programming. Now the CBL volume will default to the TV allowing you to adjust the TV volume when the remote control is in CBL mode.

    Note: To return the CBL volume to the CBL Mode repeat steps above replacing [TV] with [CBL] in Step 3.Volume controls can be modified for all devices by following the above steps.
  • Programming Channel Control
    You can program the channel controls (Channel Up, Channel Down, Last and Numeric Keys) from one component to operate in another Device mode of the remote control. Default channel control settings on the remote control are as follows:

    CBL: CBL
    TV: CBL
    VCR: CBL
    DVD: DVD
    AUX: AUX.


    If you wish to store TV channel controls when the remote control is in TV mode, use the following steps:

    STEP 1 Press the [OK/SEL] button and [TV] button simultaneously for three seconds. The device LED will turn on for 30 seconds. The next step must be performed while the LED is on.

    STEP 2 Press the [VOL-] button. The device LED will blink.

    STEP 3 Press [TV] button. The device LED will blink twice to confirm the programming. Now the remote control will operate the TV channel will default to TV allowing you to adjust the TV channels when the remote control is in TV mode.

    Note: To return CBL channel control to the TV mode of the remote control repeat steps above replacing [TV] with [CBL] in Step 3.
  • Programming the VCR/DVD- VOD Keys to control your VCR or DVD player
    By default, the REW, Play, FF, Record, Stop and Pause keys operate VOD (Video On Demand) through your Cable Box.

    If you would like those keys to operate those functions on your DVD or VCR, press and hold the [PLAY] button for 3 seconds until the DVD/VCR button lights.

    To return to your Cable Box control, press and hold the [PLAY] key again for 3 seconds until the CBL button lights.
  • Low Battery Warning
    The remote control has a built in test to determine if the batteries are low and need to be replaced with new batteries.

    Press the [POWER] button, if the Device LED lights blink 1 time each in sequence beginning with CBL and ending with AUX. It will repeat this sequence a second time. This indicates that the batteries are getting low.

    Note: This test only works with the POWER button and NOT with the System On/Off button.
  • Memory Lock System
    This remote control is designed to retain programmed memory for 10 years even after batteries are removed from the remote control.
