PROGRAMMING CHANNEL LOCK

By default, the remote control’s channel-control capabilities are locked to the set-top box supplied by your service provider. The affected keys* are 1 through 0, CH+, CH-, and LAST. This will guarantee that you do not inadvertently change a channel on your TV or VCR while watching broadcast programming on your set-top box. However, you can de-activate this feature to allow full access to these keys to control the device associated with the active mode.

Locking All Channel Control to One Device

To lock all channel-control functions to a specific device, follow these steps:

  1. Press and hold SETUP until the mode LED blinks (e.g., TV) twice.

  2. Enter 9 7 3. The mode LED (e.g., TV) blinks twice.


  3. Press CH+ once. The mode LED (e.g., TV) blinks once.

  4. Press the mode key for the device that you want to use for channel-changing. The mode LED blinks twice.

Now, regardless of what mode you select, the channel keys will only change channels on the assigned device.

Locking Channel Control for Specific Device Modes

To set Channel Lock for some device modes, but not others, you must first follow the steps under “Unlocking Channel Control”. Then follow the steps below:

  1. Press the mode key that corresponds to the device you wish with to command for channel-changing functions. The mode LED (e.g., TV) blinks once.

  2. Press and hold SETUP until the mode LED (e.g., TV) blinks twice.

  3. Enter 9 7 3. The mode LED (e.g., TV) blinks twice.


  4. Press each mode key that you do not use for channel-changing functions. These are the modes in which the channel-changing
    functions will control the device related to the mode key you pressed in step 1. Any mode omitted from this step has all channel controls assigned to that mode's device.

  5. Press SETUP to save. The mode LED blinks twice.

Unlocking Channel Control

To unlock Channel Lock and thus allow the channel control functions to work with the device associated to the active operating mode, follow these steps:

  1. Press and hold SETUP until the mode LED blinks twice.

  2. Enter 9 7 3. The mode LED blinks twice.


  3. Press CH- once. The mode LED blinks four times.

Now the channel functions correspond to the active mode (e.g., press CH+ in TV mode and the TV changes channel accordingly).
