When a re-assignment is done, the LED will blink twice to confirm your choice. At that time, you will need to program the Catalyst 48 to control the new component (see Programming Component Control).

CHANGING VOLUME LOCK

The Catalyst 48 is set to control volume of a component through your TV while in the TV,VCR, Cable, or Satellite mode. However, in an Audio mode (i.e., TNR, AMP, or CD), you have separate control of your audio component’s volume.

If your TV is not remote controllable, or if you want volume to be controlled by a different component, you can change the Volume Lock setting to control a volume through a non-associated mode (e.g., through the cable in the TV mode).

To change Volume Lock to the another mode:

1.On the Catalyst 48, press and hold SETUP until the LED blinks twice, then release SETUP.

2.Enter 9 - 9 - 3 and then press any mode key once (except TV). The LED will blink twice.

3.Now, whenever you press VOL +, VOL , or MUTE, volume will be controlled by your mode choice.

To change Volume Lock back to the TV mode:

1.On the Catalyst 48, press and hold SETUP until the LED blinks twice, then release SETUP.

2.Enter 9 - 9 - 3 and then press TV. The LED will blink twice.

3.Now, whenever you press VOL +, VOL , or MUTE on the Catalyst 48, volume will be controlled by your TV.

TROUBLESHOOTING

PROBLEM: LED does not blink when you press a key.

SOLUTION: Replace the batteries with two (2) new AA alkaline batteries.

PROBLEM: LED blinks when you press a key, but home entertainment component does not respond.

SOLUTION: Make sure the Catalyst 48 is aimed at your home entertainment component and is not farther than 15 feet away.

PROBLEM: Catalyst 48 does not control home entertainment components or commands are not working properly.

SOLUTION: Try all listed codes for the component brands being set up. Make sure they can be operated with an infrared remote control.

PROBLEM: TV/VCR combo does not respond properly.

SOLUTION: Use the VCR codes for your brand. Some combo units may require both a TV code and a VCR code for full operation.

PROBLEM: No volume on a 2nd TV.

SOLUTION: Follow instructions in

Changing Volume Lock.

PROBLEM: CH+ , CH- , and LAST do not work for your RCA TV.

SOLUTION: Due to RCA design (19831987), only the original remote control will operate these functions.

PROBLEM: Changing channels does not work properly.

SOLUTION: If original remote control required pressing ENTER to change channels, press ENTER on the Catalyst 48 after entering the channel number.

PROBLEM: Tried “Search Method” and still could not find a working code.

SOLUTION: Try the “Search Method” again after clearing out the device key as follows: Press and hold SETUP until the red light blinks twice, then release. Next enter 9 - 9 - 2. Then press and release the device key to be cleared twice.
