Solution

 

The design of the URC 8820, based on customer feedback, makes it easier and more efficient to use. You can perform many functions with one hand.

  3. Continue to aim the remote at your devices until all of them turn on or off.

Note: If a device turns ON when the others turn OFF, manually turn OFF that device from its front panel so that it is in sync with the other devices.

Back lightingThe URC 8820 remote control provides a back lighting feature that makes it easy to use in dim light. You can also disable the back lighting feature, if you do not need it.

  7. Release both buttons.
  8. Press and release the CH - (channel down) button.
  9. Press and release the AUX button. It will blink 4 times.
