  1. Hold down both the Blue S tandby and A/V button beneath it for around 3 seconds. When the light of the blue button stops blinking or turns brighter, it means the device is ready to learn.
  2. Press the button on the Encoded Media remote that you want to program. The light will start blinking.
  3. Place the front of the two remotes opposite each other, then hold the button you wish to copy on the remote of the other device for 2 seconds.
  4. After the green light gives two quick blinks, you may continue programming other buttons. Repeat the procedure described above for all buttons you want to program for controlling external devices.
  5. Press the Blue Standby and A/V buttons or leave the remote untouched for a few moments to save the programmed data. The light should turn off.
