Program the Channel Control Buttons on the Cox Digital Interactive M1054

Last Updated: Fri, 11 Mar 2011 > Related Articles

Summary

This article describes how to activate and deactivate Channel Control Lock capabilities on the remote control.

Solution

By default, the remote control’s channel-control capabilities are locked to work only with the cable receiver. Channel Control Lock affects the following buttons on the Cox remote control:

  • 0 - 9
  • CH+
  • CH-
  • ENTER
  • LAST

The buttons are locked so that you do not inadvertently change a channel on your TV or VCR. This article describes how to:

  • Deactivate Channel Control Lock to allow full access to these keys in the TV and VCR modes.
  • Reactivate Channel Control Lock to control only the cable receiver.

This feature does not affect the AUD mode.
