How to Program a Remote to Control a TV

 post:2016-10-28


Your remote will automatically be able to change channels on your TV and display all the menus, because these functions are done through the device. The following sections describe how to program the remote to control your particular brand of TV (and optionally, your A/V receiver). You can use these instructions with all remotes, including learning remotes.

Programming TV power, volume, and mute

You can program your remote to turn your TV on and off, control the volume, and cycle through the TV input settings, so you only have to use one remote to control your TV.


Go to the Remote Control Setup screen.

Highlight Part 1: TV power, volume, and mute and press SELECT. The device displays a list of television brands. Use the UP ARROW and DOWN ARROW buttons and the CHAN DOWN and CHAN UP buttons on the remote to highlight your TV brand and then press SELECT. The TV Remote Codes screen appears.

Follow the instructions on this screen to enter a code into your remote control. If the first code does not work, repeat the instructions to enter the second remote control code, and so forth, until you find a code that works. 

Programming A/V volume and mute

If you connected an A/V receiver to your UES or DVR to provide audio through your sound system, you can program the remote to control the volume and mute functions on the A/V receiver instead of on your TV.

If you just finished programming the TV power, volume and mute, press SELECT in response to the prompts until you reach the Remote Control Setup screen.

Highlight Part 2:A/V volume, and mute and press SELECT. Use the UP ARROW and DOWN ARROW buttons and the CHAN DOWN and CHAN UP buttons on the remote to highlight your A/V receiver brand and then press SELECT. The A/V Remote Codes screen appears.

Follow the instructions on the A/V Remote Codes screen to enter a code into your remote control. If the first code does not work, repeat the instructions to enter the second code, and so forth, until you find a code that works.

Use the TV remote control (not the remote) to turn down or mute the sound on your TV; once you choose an A/V receiver code, the remote will control the power on your TV, but not the TV volume or mute functions. 

Programming the TV input function

You may also want to program the remote to cycle through the video input settings on your TV. For example, if you have the UES or DVR connected to HDMI port 1 on the TV, and a game system connected to HDMI port 2, you will be able to switch between watching shows on your device and playing games by pressing the TV INPUT button on the remote.

If you just finished programming the TV power, volume and mute or A/V receiver volume, press SELECT in response to the prompts until you reach the Remote Control Setup screen.

Highlight Part 3: TV input and press SELECT. Use the UP ARROW and DOWN ARROW buttons and the CHAN DOWN and CHAN UP buttons on the remote to highlight your TV brand and then press SELECT. The TV Remote Codes screen appears.

Follow the instructions on this screen to enter a code into your remote control. If the first remote control does not work, repeat the instructions to enter the second remote control code, and so forth, until you find a code that works.

What to do if you cant find a working code

The procedures above are used to select codes that are already programmed into the remote. The TV Remote Codes screen, for example, displays a list of the most common codes for your TV brand, but your remote may be programmed with many other codes.

If none of the codes shown on the screen works, you can get the remote to search its pre-programmed list for a code that will control your TV/sound system. For instructions, go to Remote Control Programming Codes

If you purchased a very new model of HDTV or A/V receiver, your remote may not have the code for your equipment. Most devices include remotes that can "learn" codes from the TV and A/V receiver remotes. For instructions on how to use a learning remote, go to How to Use the Learning Feature of Learning Remotes. If your UES or DVR did not come with a learning remote, you can purchase one from the store.

Advance and Replay buttons

If you just finished programming the TV power, volume and mute or A/V receiver volume, press SELECT in response to the prompts until you reach the Remote Control Setup screen.

Use this screen to switch the function of your Advance and Replay options. The available options are:

ADVANCE scans forward 30 seconds

ADVANCE skips to tick

Follow the on-screen instructions to read more about what each selection does.
