Pair the remote via Bluetooth

Your remote uses infrared wireless (IR by default) to communicate with your set-top box or lite box. If your box is mounted behind your TV or hidden, you might want to pair your remote over Bluetooth.

 

Pair your remote

Once Bluetooth is paired, a remote only works for that specific set-top box or lite box.

 

  1. Point your remote at the set-top box or lite box.
  2. Press and hold 0 and Play/Pause buttons until the light at the top of the remote starts blinking.
  3. Continue pointing your remote at the box until the light stops blinking—this might take a few seconds.

 

Un-pair & reset Bluetooth

  1. Press the Select (center) and Exit buttons until the LED blinks.
  2. Press 9-6-6 to clear the remote.
  3. Re-pair the remote over Bluetooth.
