OPERATION OF REMOTE CONTROL UNIT

1. Remote control

The distance between the transmitter of the remote control unit and the IR SENSOR of the SR8000 should be less than about 5 meters. If the transmitter is pointed to a direction other than the IR SENSOR or if there is an obstacle between them, remote control may not be possible.

2. Loading batteries

The life of the batteries used with the remote control unit is about 4 months with normal use. Also be sure to replace batteries earlier when you notice that they are getting weak.

(1) Remove the back cover.

3. Receiving the remote control codes

The RC-18SR can learn most of the remote control codes from various equipment, it learns the full word length of the code it is receiving. Due to the sensitivity of the receiving LED the RC-18SR may also “learn” noise from fluorescent lights, etc. which can quickly fill up the memory of the RC-18SR.

In order to maximize the memory capacity of the RC-18SR please pay close attention to the following:

(1)Aim the transmitting remote control at a direct line of sight to the RC-18SR remote receiver eye.

(2)Keep 2 inches between transmitting remote and the RC-18SR receiving eye.
