  • Searching For TV Code

    5. Press Power and aim the remote control at the TV and press CH + one or more times until the TV turns off.

  • Checking the Codes

    If you have set up the remote control using the Searching for Your Code procedure, you may need to find out which five-digit code is operating your TV. Perform the following steps after setting up your TV to find out which five-digit code operates your TV.



    1. Press and hold SET until the Red Light blinks twice, and then release SET.


    2. Enter in 9 - 9 - 0. The Red Light will blink twice.


    3. To view the code for the first digit, press 1 once. Wait 3 sec≠onds and count the number of times the Red Light blinks (e.g., 3 blinks =3) and write down the number in the left most TV Code box (at end of this section).

      NOTE:† If a code digit is ì0î, the red light will not blink.


    4. Repeat step 3 four more times for the remaining digits. Use 2 for the second digit, 3 for the third digit, 4 for the fourth digit and 5 for the fifth digit. Finish writing down the code.

  • Changing Volume Lock

    The Digital Adapter remote is setup to control the volume level of the Digital Adapter. Once a valid TV code is pro≠grammed the volume keys will operate the volume of the TV.
