Fold
OVERVIEW
The Motorola DRC450 universal remote
will control up to four devices, including
Motorola's interactive digital terminals*,
most TVs,VCRs,Amplifiers, DVD players,
PVRs, Tuners, and CD players.
*NOTE: Digital models include the DCT1000,
DCT1200, DCT1700, DCT2000, DCT2500, and
DCT5100. The DRC450 can also control older
Motorola analog models like the CT1900,
CFT2100, CFT2200, and CFT3300.
The DRC450 requires two new AA
alkaline batteries (included) and has
easy programming to control your
Motorola interactive digital terminal, as
well as all of the basic functions of your
other original remote controls. Moreover,
the DRC450 helps eliminate the need to
use multiple remote controls.
For best results, please read and perform
all instructions listed herein.Also, keep
these instructions for future reference.
