Setting Up the Remote Commander
About Presetting the Commander
The Commander is preset at the factory to operate Sony brand
components.
If you're using the Commander with a Sony component, you won't
need to preset the Commander before you start using it.
To set up the Commander to use with other (non-Sony)
Remote Commander
manufacturers' components, or to use with a component that is not
preset at the factory, you'll need to follow the instructions in this
manual to preset the Commander with the correct code number for
your components. (See "Component code numbers" also).

Notes
• The Commander can be set up to operate only one component per
button – unless their code numbers happen to be the same. For
example, you cannot set up the Commander to operate a Sony TV
and a Panasonic TV simultaneously (because they use different
code numbers).
• You may not be able to operate even a Sony brand component with
the factory presetting. In such a case, follow the procedure in
"Setting the Code."

Notes on Using the Remote Commander
Basically, use this Commander in the same way as the Commanders
supplied with your components.
• Using this Commander will not increase the functions of your
components. The functions of the Commander are limited to the
functions of the components themselves. For example, if your TV
does not have a MUTING function, MUTING on this Commander
will not function with your TV.
• Some functions of the component may not work with this
Commander.
• 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.
