Operation
When the remote control is first operated all buttons transmit commands for the set-top box. The exact button function will depend on your specific service provider. Point the remote control towards the front of the set-top box when pressing a remote control button to ensure correct operation. Do not cover the IR window at the front of the product.

When a button on the remote is pressed either the set-top box standby button will flash (or TV standby button if a TV brand has been entered) depending on which product is being controlled by the remote control.

If a button is pressed for more than 30 seconds the remote control will stop transmitting commands in order to preserve battery life.

TV control setup: Brand Search
The remote control can also be programmed to operate certain functions of your TV set. To program this functionality follow the instructions in sequence. In case of a mistake, the process can be exited at any point by pressing and holding the Text/SHIFT button and then at the same time pressing the STOP button. The remote control will revert to normal operation and no TV brand code will be stored.

  1. Determine the manufacturer of your TV set
  2. Look up the 4-digit manufacturer code supplied in this manual and make a note of this code
  3. Make sure your TV set is turned on. (The set-top box does not need to be turned on to perform this programming feature)
  4. Press and hold both the 1 and the 3 buttons at the same time on the remote control for approximately 3 seconds until the TV standby button remains lit, then release both buttons
  5. Now enter the 4-digit manufacturer code for your TV set. On each digit entry the TV standby button will flash. On entry of the 4th digit the TV standby button will flash then remain lit
  6. Point the remote control at the TV set and press and hold down the TV Standby button or the Mute button on the remote control
  7. When the TV either turns off or brings up the MUTE symbol on screen, then release that button. This may take a few minutes to happen
  8. Press and hold the Text/SHIFT button and then at the same time press the STOP button to finish setting up the TV control mode

The TV standby button will go out. The TV control function is now programmed into the remote control.

The following buttons should now operate the TV set: TV Standby, AV source select, Volume Up, Volume Down, Mute

If not all the above-mentioned buttons operate the TV set then a KEY FIX operation can be performed. (See Key Fix below).

Should the TV model be changed and the remote control requires re-programming then repeats the above setup procedure with the new TV.

Should the TV brand be not successfully found by the remote control, then the TV standby button will flash rapidly and the remote control will revert to normal operation. No TV brand code will be stored.

TV control setup: Auto Search
Should the TV brand not be successfully found by the previous Brand Search method then Auto Search can be used.

Caution: this process may take a long time to find your TV code (in cases up to 5 minutes)

Make sure your TV set is turned on. (The set-top box does not need to be turned on to perform this programming feature)

  1. Press and hold both the 1 and the 3 buttons at the same time on the remote control for approximately 3 seconds until the TV standby button remains lit, then release both buttons
  2. Point the remote control at the TV set and press and hold down the TV Standby button or the Mute button on the remote control
  3. When the TV either turns off or brings up the MUTE symbol on screen, then release that button. This may take up to 5 minutes to happen
  4. Press and hold the Text/SHIFT button and then at the same time press the STOP button to finish setting up the TV control mode. The TV standby button will go out. The TV control function is now programmed into the remote control.

Should the TV brand be not successfully found by the remote control, then the TV standby button will flash rapidly and the remote control will revert to normal operation. No TV brand code will be stored.

If even Auto Search fails to successfully setup operation of the TV set, then the remote is unable to control that particular TV set.
