Programming the Remote
to Control Other Devices
The remote control will only control the device
that is selected by the appropriate mode key
(STB, TV, DVD and AUX). The mode key light
for the selected device ashes each time a valid
key is pressed. In order to control other devices
with your MXv3 Remote Control, you need to
tell the remote control what types of devices
you have. Sections A and B take you through
the steps needed to do this. The volume controls
will control your Set-top Box (STB) until the TV
device mode is set up. The channel controls will
always control your STB. If you want to change
this, you should follow the steps in Sections E
& F.
To use your MXv3 Remote Control for your other
devices, you will need to set up the TV, DVD and
AUX mode keys to control the devices (Section A).
Please refer to the code list for a list of supported
brands and models. If you do not nd the brand
of your device on the supported code list, please
refer to section B for the search function or you
may use section C for instructions on the learning
feature of your remote control.
If you have an integrated or combo unit such as a
TV/DVD, each component of the unit may need
to be set up separately by setting up both the TV
and DVD mode keys.
Note: The DVD and AUX mode keys can be set
up with any code. The TV mode key can only be
set up with TV codes.
A. Manual Programming
How to set up the TV, DVD or AUX mode keys:
1. Power on the device you want to program and
locate the 4-digit code from the code list.
2. Press and hold the mode key (TV, DVD or
AUX) and, while holding it pressed, press the OK
key for 1 second.
3. Release both keys. All of the mode keys will
ash, then the selected mode key light will stay lit.
4. Enter the 4-digit code by pressing the numerical
keys (0-9). The selected mode key light will blink
for each digit entry and will remain off after the
entry of the fourth digit
-
indicating a successful
setup.
5. Point the remote control at the selected device
and press the power key once. The device should
turn off. If the device stayed on, repeat steps 2
through 5, trying each code for your brand until
you nd the correct code
Repeat the steps on the previous page to set up
another device. To use the remote control for
your Set-top Box, press the STB mode key.
Note: If an invalid code is entered or no key is
pressed at all for 30 seconds, the mode key light
ashes for 3 seconds and turns off. The remote
control returns to normal operation and you
will need to start over from step A2 to set up the
device.
B. Using the Search Function
To search for a particular device code for DVD or
AUX, e.g., VCR, use the Manual Programming
for section A and program DVD or AUX with any
VCR code prior to starting a search.
1. Turn on the device you want to control and
point the remote at that device.
2. Press and hold the mode key (TV, DVD or
AUX) and, while holding it pressed, press the OK
key for 1 second.
3. Release both keys. All of the mode keys will
ash then the selected mode key light will stay lit.
4. Press the power button repetitively until the
selected device turns off. Once your device has
turned off, press OK to save the code.
5. To indicate a successful setup, the selected
mode key will turn off and you are ready to set
up another device by following steps 1 thru 4 of
this section.
C. Learning
If the code for your device is not found in the
code list and the search feature was not able to
nd the code for your device, then the learning
feature may be your best option. The learning
feature lets you “learn” functions from your
original remote control.
Note: Learning cannot be performed for any
mode until after that mode is set up with a valid
code. So, to learn the keys, rst set up the mode
with a valid code, see section A, (select any code
for the appropriate mode from the code list), then
follow the steps below.
C-I. Learning Commands
1. Press and hold the mode key (TV, DVD or
AUX) on the MXv3 remote and, while holding it
pressed, press the LEARN key for 1 second, then
release both keys.
2. All of the mode keys will ash and then the
selected mode key light remains on.
3. On your MXv3 Remote, press and release the
key that you want to teach.
4. While pointing your original remote at the
bottom of your MXv3 Remote, approximately 1
inch apart, press and hold the original remote key
until the mode key light blinks once and stays on.
(If there is a learning problem, the mode key light
blinks for 3 seconds and stays on. If this happens,
repeat steps 3 and 4 above.)
5. Repeat steps 3 and 4 on previous page for each
key you want your MXv3 Remote Control to
learn.
6. Press and release the LEARN key when all
desired remote commands have been learned.
If you have encountered difculties with the
LEARN key setup, please refer to Section K:
Troubleshooting Learning.
Note: It is not necessary to have your MXv3
Remote Control learn every key from your original
remote, since most of the keys will not be used
under normal daily use. The best practice is to
teach only the keys that help you navigate for the
best experience, like your volume up and down.
D. Clearing Commands
D-I. To Clear all Learned Commands
(under a single mode)
1. Press and hold the mode key (TV, DVD or
AUX) and, while holding it pressed, press the
LEARN key for one second, then release both

mode key light will stay on.
3. Press and release the LEARN key once. The
mode key light blinks off.

that mode are now cleared.
E. Volume Control Setup Options
The volume controls will control your Set-top Box
until the TV device mode is programmed, e.g.,
if DVD mode is selected, then volume controls
your STB. If TV mode is programmed and DVD
mode is selected, then volume controls your TV.
If you’d like the volume commands to operate
from just one device, e.g., always TV, then follow
the instructions in Section E-I. If you’d like the
volume commands to be sent to different devices
depending on which mode you are in, then follow
the instructions in Section E-II.

3 seconds and turns off. The remote control
returns to normal operation and you will need
to start over.

4. If no key is pressed within 30 seconds, the
remote control times out. The selected mode
key light ashes for 3 seconds and turns off. The
remote control returns to normal operation and
you will need to start over.
K. Troubleshooting Learning
You can only learn one device type under any
one mode key. For example, only learn TV
codes under the TV mode, DVD codes under the
DVD mode, etc. If you are trying to learn from a
“Universal” remote, it might have more than one
code type stored under a mode.
a. No functions may be stored under the LEARN
key, or in the STB mode.
b. Depending on the remote you are trying to
learn, some keys may not be learnable.
c. Only one original device type can be learned
per individual mode.
d. Use fresh batteries for your original remote and
your MXv3 Remote Control.
e. Stay at least 3 feet away from incandescent or
low-energy lights when learning.
f. Before learning, clear all learned commands
(refer to Section D-II), then try learning two or
three commands initially.
g. Point your original remote at the bottom end of
your MXv3 Remote Control so the IR elements
on both remotes are directly in line with each
other (see diagram in C-I). You may need to adjust
the height of either remote to achieve this.
h. Avoid learning your original remote’s Volume/
Mute keys unless you are sure these operate the
same device.
i. Avoid learning your original remote’s VCR
or DVD transport keys unless you’re sure these
operate the same device.
j. If learning the rst or second keys for a
mode results in continuous errors, then try the
following:
i. End the learn session by pressing the LEARN key.
ii. Clear out the learned commands for
that mode.
iii. Check that the IR elements are correctly
aligned between the two remotes.
iv. Adjust the distance between the two remotes
to be closer (e.g., half an inch) or farther away
(e.g., 2 inches) from each other.
v. Try learning the original remote for that
mode again. If problems reoccur with the
same key, check the original remote key
being learned. Does it transmit Does it
operate the target device Try learning that
key under a different clear mode. If it learns
OK, then it is likely to be a different code
type from the others and cannot be learned
under the same mode.
