Notes on Using the Remote Commander
•Using this Commander will not increase the
functions of your TV, VCR or cable box. The
functions of the Commander are limited to the
functions of the components themselves. For
example, if your TV does not have a Recall
function, the RECALL button on this Commander
will not function with your TV.
•If your cable box can control volume, be sure to
set its volume switch to a medium position. If the
volume on the cable box is turned down
completely, you will not be able to adjust your
TV's volume with the Commander.

• When setting up the Commander, carefully go
through the procedures described under "Setting
18, 48 & 12, 09, 10
Up the Commander". If the code that's listed first
02, 12, 24, 23
for your component doesn't work, try all the
codes listed for your component – in the order in
07, 08, 11, 12, 13,
which they're listed. If all the codes fail to work
14, 15, 16
(or if your component is not listed in this manual),

try using the procedures under "Searching for the

• When setting up the component, if you press the
wrong button, press and release the S (Set) button.

Then enter the correct code number again.
• Check that you're aiming the Commander directly
17
at the component, and that there are no

obstructions between the Commander and the
component.

• Make sure the batteries you're using are not worn

out, and that they're inserted correctly. Note that
whenever you remove the batteries – to replace
23, 27 & 24, 25, 29
them, for example – the preset codes are erased
33, 38
from memory and must be reset.
• Check that the component has infrared remote
25
capability. For example, if your component
15, 16, 24, 38, 26,
didn't come with a remote, it probably isn't
27, 28, 29
