IR Remote Learning
Set Up Your TV's IR Remote Control For SmartBar™ Learning
Note: For your sound bar to respond to your remote control, you
MUST FIRST program the bar to respond to your television's original
IR (Infra-Red) remote. An RF (Radio Frequency) remote will not work.
Other remotes (cable, satellite) will work only after you have
programmed the bar to respond to the TV's IR remote.
Your sound bar is currently programmed to respond to the remote
control that is included with the product. However, we strongly
recommend programming the sound bar to also respond to your
existing remote control using the steps illustrated below. This will
enable you to operate all of your components using a single remote
control. While programming the sound bar, ignore anything that may
be displayed on the TV screen.
Example: To teach your bar the "Volume Up" command of your

Important note to save your tv's ir remote commands:
After you've programmed all of the commands on your TV's remote
control, press and hold the "Source/Learn" button for 5 seconds.
This saves all of the commands.
Note: If your bar fails to learn certain IR remote codes, the
power LED will blink red three times. Try erasing any previously
programmed codes (see below) and carefully repeat steps
Code Erasing Procedure:
If you have programmed your Sound bar to respond to a remote
control and you no longer want it to do so, erase the codes by
pressing the "Source/Learn" button for 10 seconds. Previously
learned codes have been successfully erased when the POWER
LED flashes green ten times.
Note: This procedure removes ALL of your bar's remote control
programming. If you only need to change the programming for
some of the bar buttons, follow the six steps in the sequence
previously described to redo any previous programming.
The Sound bar will continue to respond to the provided credit
card remote control.
