Turn on the device you want to program.

Press and release the button for the device you are programming (AUX, DVD, or TV).

Note: You may have to hold the Select button down longer than a minute, while the remote control searches the entire list of codes for the device you are programming.


When the device turns off, release the Select button, and the code for the device is saved automatically.

Result: The remote is now programmed to work with the device.
