How to Program Spectrum Remote to TV?
TV remotes aren’t exactly a new concept. They have been around for decades. Some of the earliest TVs came with wired remotes. Then, as technology improved, IR remotes emerged, allowing you to wireless switch between channels and power your TV on and off. But the Spectrum remote is something far more advanced than conventional remote controls.
About Spectrum Remote
The provider’s 1060BC2/1060BC3 remote models are high-tech devices that allow you to control a range of devices. With the same remote, you can not only operate your cable box but also specific DVD players and audio receivers. And of course, they can also control many RCA TV sets. But you may need to program the remote to your device first. Read on to find out more about how to program a Spectrum remote to TV.
Programing Your Spectrum Remote to TV
In many cases, your remote will work effortlessly. The remote is a great piece of tech that can enhance your TV experience with no extra Spectrum hidden cost. But sometimes, you may need to program it to specific devices. The remote connects using a 5-digit code specific to that device, in this case, your RCA TV. The simple way is to press the TV button on the remote. Then press and keep the Setup key held down. When the Mode key blinks twice, release the button. Find the 5-digit code for your TV set on the box or in the manual and wait for the Mode key to blink two times. If you were successful, pressing the Power button should turn the TV on or off. Get ready to enjoy your Spectrum TV packages to the fullest!
If you weren’t successful, don’t worry. Try these simple options:
Use Your Remote’s Auto-Search Feature
There are several easy steps to automatically connect your remote to your TV. This uses the auto-search feature that comes with most Spectrum remote models. The following steps should help solve your connection problem and get the most out of your TV experience:
- Power on your RCA TV.
- Press the TV button and the OK key together for 3 seconds.
- Wait for your TV LED to turn on for 30 seconds.
- Press the CH buttons simultaneously and wait for the TV to switch off.
- The remote should emit the on and off codes for your TV.
To check if the method worked, try to power on the TV with the Power button. The TV will switch on, and you should also be able to adjust things like volume and changing channels. If this is happening, it means the remote has found the correct code for your TV. Simply press the TV button one more time to save the code. The LED should blink twice to indicate the code is saved correctly. You should now be able to enjoy the best of what your Spectrum TV Choice can offer.
Use the Quick Set-Up Table In the Manual
This technique helps you set up your TV in a quick and easy manner. Your remote comes with a user manual with lots of information. It also contains a quick set-up table, with the codes for specific TV brands and manufacturers. Find the right code for your TV, then follow the steps below:
- Press the TV button and the Yellow or Blue button as indicated by the table.
- Wait for the LED to switch on, then point your remote at the TV.
- Type in the code indicated by the quick set-up table for your TV.
- Wait for the TV to switch off.
If the TV powers off, it implies that you entered the correct code to program your remote to that TV. Now simply tap the TV button one more time to save the code, and you should be good to go. You should also be able to locate the code online using your Spectrum internet plans with a simple Google search for your TV brand and model in the provider’s user resource material.
Follow the Owner’s Manual for the Remote
If the code list does not contain the code for your TV or brand, then you’ll need to try to manually program the remote. You will need the remote’s user manual for this. So if you don’t already have it, download it right away. Once you have the manual on hand, try the following steps:
- Switch on your TV.
- Press the TV and OK button on the remote together.
- After 3 seconds the TV screen will light up.
- The screen should tell you the TV is being programmed.
- Enter the codes from the manual (some brands can have multiple ones).
- When you enter the correct code, the TV should power off.
To check if you were successful try to power on the TV and flip some channels. If that works, you’ve managed to program your remote. Simply hit the Device button one last time and save the right code. You should now have no more problems controlling your TV with the provider’s remote. Have fun with your entertainment!
