Getting Started - Overview Control up to 6 Components The AVEX R6 remote control is designed to control up to six different Audio/Video components and operate virtually all brands of AUDIO, TV, DVD, VCR/DVR, SAT/CABLE and AUX (Light, Music Server, etc.) components.
Low Battery Warning When the batteries are low and need to be replaced the component LED will quickly blink three times when you press the Power [ON] button. Couch Mode The AVEX R6 is designed to automatically turn itself off if a button is pressed for more than 30 seconds. This prevents battery power from being depleted should the remote accidentally slip between the couch cushions.
Keypad Layout & Button Functions POWER Allows you to turn the selected component on and off. TV, CBL,VCR, AUDIO, DVD, AUX Used to select the component you want to operate and signals remote control activity. MENU Displays the Applications Menu through the Cable Set Top Box.
Programming AVEX R6 using Pre-Programmed Codes There are three different ways you can program your AVEX R6 using the component brand codes that are pre-programmed into the remote. One of these will work for you! • Quick Set-Up Method • Three-Digit Code Entry Method •...
UICK Three-Digit Code Set-Up Method STEP 1: Find the 3-digit code numbers assigned to your brand from the lists in the back of this manual. The codes are listed by component category (i.e., TV, VCR, DVD, etc.), then by brand name. For instance, if you would like to locate a code for a Sony television, first locate the TV category and then look for the Sony brand.
STEP 5: Point the AVEX R6 toward the component (in this example the TV) and punch in the first 3-digit code that you wrote down for that specific component. Use the Number buttons 0–9 on the remote to punch in the code. The TV LED light will blink each time a number is pressed.
LED light will turn off. The remote will exit the programming mode and you will have to start over. STEP 3: Point the AVEX R6 remote control toward the component and press the UP DOWN arrow) button once. Each time the UP...
STEP 4: Once you have found the right code number and the component has turned off, press the POWER button on the AVEX R6 remote to turn the component back on. Next test the VOLUME and CHANNEL buttons (or PLAY and STOP buttons for VCR and DVD) to make sure they all work.
If Auto Search did not work, try this: Programming AVEX R6 using the Learning Method STEP 1: Line up the AVEX R6 to the remote control you want to ‘learn’ from, head--to--head as shown below. Make sure the heads are one to two inches apart.
Here are some additional facts regarding the Learning process: • Learned functions override any existing pre-programmed functions on the remote control. • Learned functions are automatically erased when a new function is learned on the same button. • Learned functions are retained even after a different set-up code number is programmed into the remote control.
Special Advanced Features Programming Automated Activities The AVEX R6 has six Macro buttons (POWER, SYSTEM OFF, A, B, C, D) that are designed to store up to 20 commands in each button. Pressing any one of the Macro buttons, or Automated activity, will send out the series of commands that are stored in that particular button.
IMPORTANT: You have 30 seconds to perform the next step while you are in programming mode. If you do not press a button within 30 seconds, the component LED light will turn off. The remote will exit the programming mode and you will have to start over.
Notes regarding programming multi- commands to Macro buttons: • You can program up to 20 commands on each Macro button. • You can program delays in between commands by pressing the PAUSE button. Each press adds a one-half second delay. •...
Programming “My Favorites” - Favorite Channel Buttons In Cable mode, the A, B, C, D buttons are also designed to serve as dedicated Favorite Channel buttons. Each button will access one of your favorite channels with just one button press. Here’s how to program Favorite Channels: STEP 1: Press the CBL button to select the Cable mode.
More Favorite Channels You can also use the "A, B, C and D" buttons to program favorite channels. Each button can pro- gram up to 5 favorite channels (or a total of 20 button presses), but you're not limited to using these buttons for only that.
SimpleSound™ Total System Volume Control SimpleSound is one of the most exciting features of the AVEX R6. It gives you total volume control over ALL the components in your system, even those that do not have built--in volume control, such as TIVO, DVD and VCR.
STEP 2: Press the VOLUME UP button and then press either the TV or AUDIO component button that you want to use for volume. The Component LED light will blink three times to confirm that it is saved. This sets up three buttons (Volume Up, Volume Down and MUTE) as a group for that component.
Channel Controls (CHANNEL UP, DOWN, LAST, CHANNEL NUMBERS 0-9, +10 and ENTER) will also operate in other component modes on the remote control. STEP 1: Press and hold the component button you want to add channel control to, such as...
AVEX R6 so that VCR or DVD Transport Controls (PLAY, STOP, FF, REW, PAUSE, SKIP and RECORD) will also operate in other component modes on the remote control. STEP 1: Press and hold the component button you want to add Transport Control to, such as CBL or...
(MENU, GUIDE, INFO, EXIT, SEL and 4 Cursor Controls) will also operate in other component modes on the remote control. STEP 1: Press and hold the component button you want to add OSD Control to, such as TV or VCR, and the SELECT [SEL] button at the same time for two seconds until the Component LED light turns on.
Input Switching Macros These macros can be difficult and will vary depending on your specific setup. Because most TVs have a "Toggle" input feature, there's no way to jump to a spe- cific video source discretely. "Toggle" means that you have one button on your remote that cycles through all available video sources (inputs) on your TV.
Erasing Commands -- Overview You can erase a single learned command, all learned commands in each component mode, SimpleSound programming, MacroPower commands, or re--set the remote to original factory default settings. Erasing a Single Learned Command from One Component STEP 1: Press the component button where the learned command is stored and the ENTER buttons at the same time for two seconds until the component LED light turns on.
Erasing All Learned Commands from One Component This function allows you to erase all the learned commands from one component. For example, if you want to erase all learned commands on the TV component button because you bought a new TV, the process is very simple.
Erasing MacroPower & Other Macro Commands STEP 1: To erase MacroPower commands on the POWER ON or SYSTEM OFF button, press and hold either the POWER ON or SYSTEM OFF button and the MUTE button simultaneously for two seconds until the current status component LED turns on. IMPORTANT: If you don’t proceed to the next step within 30 seconds, the LED will turn off and exit set-up mode and you will need to start over.
Erasing SimpleSound & Other “Punch Through” Commands STEP 1: Press and hold the Component button you want to erase volume control from, such as DVD or VCR and the SELECT [SEL] button at the same time for two seconds until the Component LED light turns on.
Factory Reset You can reset your AVEX R6 remote to the original factory default settings. Press and hold both the TV and RECORD buttons for about five seconds until the DVR/VCR component LED light blinks five times. All programming and set-up codes that you have entered into the remote will be erased and the AVEX R6 will return to the original factory default settings.
Finding a Component’s Set-up Code Number If you used the Auto--Search or Learning Methods to program a component, you may not know the code number you programmed. Here is a way for you to identify what that code number is, so you can make a note in the back of this Manual for future reference.
Pre-Programmed The AVEX R6 Pre-Programmed code library is classified by category (TV, VCR, DVD, etc.). Within each category, the code numbers are listed in rows by brand (Sony, Panasonic, B & K, etc.). Some brands have more than one three-digit code. Circle the correct row and refer to it while you perform setup operations.
