How to select a universal remote for my TV?
Universal remote control is a device that allows you to control your TV, set-top box, and other household equipment. It makes the use of your domestic appliances much easier. You don’t need to get used to the design of several remotes and keep in mind where you put the remotes from different devices.
To understand if universal remotes are worth it, let’s look at their options. In appearance, shape and location of the buttons, the universal remote resembles a conventional TV remote. The difference is in functionality: the universal remote control is ‘teachable’, i.e. it can copy the functions of the infrared remote control from another device. For example, from an amplifier, stereo system, or air conditioner.
Customers often ask questions like, ‘What is the principal difference between a universal remote and a conventional one?’ and ‘What is a good universal remote?’ To answer these questions, below we have listed the advantages of this device. With a universal remote control, you will be able to
- operate several devices with just one remote control;
- edit or cancel the settings if you wish.
Another question that customers ask is, ‘Can I use a universal remote for any TV and will it work with my TV model?’ Programmable RCU for MAG and Remote Control T4H from our online store can be configured to work with any TV or set-top box controlled with IR remotes. In addition, these models can copy the IR commands of the original remotes from other devices.
How do I set up my universal remote?
Infomir multifunctional remotes have a number of buttons to control other devices. They can be assigned functions you want to transfer to the universal remote. The multifunctional remote control can be configured in just a few minutes.
In order to transfer the remote-control functions from one device to the other, you have to place two remotes in front of each other at a distance of not more than 5 cm and establish a connection between them. For example, on the T4H remote, you need to press the blue and red buttons simultaneously and hold them down for three seconds. When the backlight illuminates, you can copy the commands of another remote control to the T4H. To do this, on the other remote control you should press the button whose function you want to copy. The light sensor signals will indicate that the data have been copied. To complete the remote-control setting, press the OK button. You can later change the settings if you want to.
The remotes presented in our shop work at a distance of up to 10 metres. They have an ergonomic and comfortable design. In our shop, multifunctional remotes can be purchased separately or in a set with a MAG set-top box.
