Getting Started - Overview

Control up to 6 Components

The AVEX R6 remote control is designed to control up to six different Audio/Video components and operate virtually all brands of AUDIO, TV, DVD, VCR/DVR, SAT/CABLE and AUX (Light, Music Server, etc.) components.

Component Buttons

Once you have programmed the AVEX R6 for all of your components, all you need to do is press a component button and all the buttons on the AVEX R6 will work with that component. For example, when you press the TV component button, all the buttons on your AVEX R6 will operate your TV. If you press the DVD component button, all the buttons on the AVEX R6 will operate your DVD.

Each time you press any of the buttons on the remote, the LED light in the component button will light up to indicate which component you are controlling.

Programming AVEX R6 using Pre-ProgrammedCodes

There are three different ways you can program your AVEX R6 using the component brand codes that are pre-programmedinto the remote. One of these will work for you!

Quick Set-UpMethod

Three-DigitCode Entry Method

Auto-SearchMethod

** *

TRY THIS FIRST!

Quick Set-UpMethod

STEP 1: Manually or using your old remote, turn on the component you want toprogram—forexample, to program your TV, turn on your TV set.

STEP 2: Point the AVEX R6 toward the component that you want to program (in this case the TV set) and press and hold the component button (in this case the TV button).While holding down the component button, begin to press numeric keys, one number at a time, starting from 1, continuing to 2, 3 ... 0 until component (in this case the TV) turns off.

STEP 3: Release the component button to save the code. The component LED light will blink three times to confirm that the code has been stored.

Repeat the above three steps for other components.

IFQUICKSET-UPDID NOT WORK, TRY THIS NEXT:

Three-DigitCodeSet-UpMethod

STEP 1: Find the3-digitcode numbers assigned to your brand from the lists in the back of this manual. The codes are listed by component category (i.e., TV, VCR, DVD, etc.), then by brand name. For instance, if you would like to locate a code for a Sony television, first locate the TV category and then look for the Sony brand.

STEP 2: Once you have located the3-digitcodes for each of the components that you wish to operate with your AVEX R6, write them ALL down on a piece of paper. It’s important that you write down all the codes listed for your brand because only one code is going to work with your component.

STEP 3: Manually or using your old remote, turn on the component you want toprogram—forexample, to program your TV turn on your TV set.

STEP 4: On the AVEX R6, press the Component button that you want to program (in this case the button that says TV) and the SELECT [SEL] button at the same time. Hold down both buttons for 2 seconds until the TV Component LED light turns on. This signals that you are in programming mode.

IMPORTANT: You have 30 seconds to perform the next step while you are in programming mode. If you do not press a button within 30 seconds,the component LED light will turn off. The remote will exit the programming mode and you will have to start over.

If the Three Digit Code did not work, try this next:

Auto-SearchMethod

The Auto-SearchMethod is a way you can scan through all of the codes in the table to find the right code for your component.

STEP 1: Manually or using your old remote, turn on the component you want toprogram—forexample, to program your TV, turn on your TV set.

STEP 2: On the AVEX R6, press the Component button that you want to program (in this case the button that says TV) and the SELECT [SEL] button at the same time. Hold down both buttons for 2 seconds until the TV Component button light turns on. This signals that you are in programming mode.

IMPORTANT: You have 30 seconds to perform the next step while you are in programming mode. If you do not press a button within 30 seconds, the component LED light will turn off. The remote will exit the programming mode and you will have to start over.

ARROW

STEP 3: Point the AVEX R6 remote control toward the component and press the UParrow (or DOWNarrow) button once. Each time the UP or DOWN arrow button is pressed, the code will count up (or down) one code number and send a Power OFF signal. When the correct code is sent out, the component will turn off.

Page 10

STEP 4: Once you have found the right code number and the component has turned off, press the POWER button on the AVEX R6 remote to turn the component back on.

Next test the VOLUME and CHANNEL buttons (or PLAY and STOP buttons for VCR and DVD) to make sure they all work. If any of the buttons do not work properly, you need to find a new code. Continue pressing the UP (or DOWN) arrow button until you find a new code that turns off the component and makes the VOLUME or PLAY buttons respond correctly.

STEP 5: Once you have found the right code, you must save it. Press the component button you just programmed (in this case TV) one more time to save the code number. The component LED light will blink three times to confirm that the code was successfully stored. Now when you press the TV component button, all of the buttons will work with your TV.

NOTE: Use this method for those components you cannot program with either the QuickSet-Upor 3- digit Code Entry Methods.

IMPORTANT: If you cannot find the right code after 5 minutes of trying theAuto-SearchMethod, try the Learning Method (page 14).

Programming AVEX R6 using the Learning Method

STEP 1: LineuptheAVEXR6totheremotecontrolyouwantto‘learn’from,head--to--headasshownbelow.Makesuretheheadsareonetotwoinchesapart.

STEP 2: On the AVEX R6, press the Component button that you want to program (in this case the button that says TV) and the ENTER [ENT] button at the same time. Hold down both buttons for 2 seconds until the TV Component button light turns on. This signals that you are in programming mode.

IMPORTANT: You have 30 seconds to perform the next step while you are in programming mode. If you do not press a button within 30 seconds, the component LED light will turn off. The remote will exit the programming mode and you will have to start over.

STEP 3: Press any button on the AVEX R6 that you want to teach a command to. For example, if you want to teach the MUTE button on the AVEX R6 the TV Mute command from the other remote, first press the MUTE button on the AVEX R6 and the TV component button LED light will blink once indicating that the AVEX R6 is ready to learn the command.

STEP 4: Press and hold the MUTE button on the other remote until the component button LED on the AVEX R6 blinks twice. Now you can continue learning all other buttons from your old remote by pressing the next button on the AVEX R6 and repeating this step.

Note: The component LED will blink five times if there was an error in the learning process. In this case, please repeat Steps 3 and 4.

Page 12

STEP 5: Once the AVEX R6 has learned all the buttons in the selected component mode, press and hold the Component button and ENTER [ENT] buttons at the same time to save the learned functions. The component LED light will blink three times to confirm the programming. Now test all the buttons to make sure they learned correctly.

Repeat Steps 1-5to program any other component modes.

If the Learning Method does not work, here are a few suggestions:

If you have a Plasma TV, move to another room.

Avoid programming under fluorescent light or direct sunlight.

Put new batteries in the old remote.

Gradually vary the distance between the two remote controls.

Tap the button on your old remote instead of pressing and holding it during the learning process.

Here are some additional facts regarding the Learning process:

Learned functions override any existing pre-programmedfunctions on the remote control.

•Learned functions are automatically erased when a new function is learned on the same button.

Learned functions are retained even after a different set-upcode number is programmed into the remote control.

To return to an original pre-programmedfunction, a learned function must to be erased.

Special Advanced Features

Programming Automated Activities

The AVEX R6 has six Macro buttons (POWER, SYSTEM OFF, A, B, C, D) that are designed to store up to 20 commands in each button. Pressing any one of the Macro buttons, or Automated activity, will send out the series of commands that are stored in that particular button.

MacroPower™ Total System On/Off

MacroPower makes several devices work together by pressing one button. Imagine the convenience of turning on your TV, your DVD player and your Surround Sound receiver by pressing a single button on your AVEX R6. What could normally take three remotes and three button pushes, the AVEX R6 can accomplish with the press of one button. We call that MacroPower. Any of the Power On or the System Off buttons can be programmed for MacroPower control. To set it up, follow these easy steps:

STEP 1: To program MacroPower commands for the Power ON button, press the POWER button and the MUTE button at the same time for 2 seconds until one of the component button LED lights turns on.

Notes regarding programming multicommands to Macro buttons:

You can program up to 20 commands on each Macro button.

You can program delays in between commands by pressing the PAUSE button. Each press adds a one-halfsecond delay.

Also, if you add the delay time as the first step of Macro commands, the remote will not send the Macro unless the button is held for two seconds. (This is the Press & Hold Function).

You can also program macro commands in ‘layers’ by pressing the STOP button in between commands. (For example, if you press CBL, 009, STOP, 035, STOP, 365, STOP and the CH+ button in Step 2) the remote will send out 009 at the first press of the ‘A’ button, and then send out 035 at the second press, etc.

You cannot program the CH+ or PAUSE buttons as macro commands.

SimpleSound™ Total System Volume Control

SimpleSound is one of the most exciting features of the AVEX R6. It gives you total volume control over ALL the components in your system, even those that do not have built--involume control, such as TIVO, DVD and VCR. SimpleSound saves you the hassle and inconvenience of constantly switching between component modes just to control volume.

First you should identify which device in your system will be used to deliver sound. In a basic system, the sound may come from your TV speaker. In a more advanced system, the sound may come from your audio components (such as a Surround Sound Receiver or Home Theatre system).

Now, let’s set--upSimpleSound. Here’s how:

STEP 1: Press and hold the button that corresponds to the Component you want to add volume control to (such as a DVD or VCR) and the SELECT (SEL) button at the same time for about three seconds until the component LED light turns on.

IMPORTANT: You have 30 seconds to perform the next step while you are in programming mode. If you do not press a button within 30 seconds, the component LED light will turn off. The remote will exit the programming mode and you will have to start over.
