Using Other Remotes with the Motion Vision
The Motion Vision offers a unique feature which allows it to "learn" codes from nearly any remote control (television remotes, cable box remotes, BluRay player remotes, etc)—including remotes not intended to be "universal". So, for example, you can program the Motion Vision to turn on and off whenever you use your television remote to turn your television on and off.
To learn codes form a third-party remote:
- Access Motion Vision's 'LEARN' submenu.
- Choose the command you want to program (VOL+, VOL-, MUTE, etc.) and press the Motion Vision's right directional button.
- The sound bar will respond with 'PUSH.BTN'. Hold the second remote approximately 12 inches (30cm) from the sound bar and press the appropriate button four times.
- If the new command is successfully learned the Motion Vision will display "SET". If the new command is not learned the Motion Vision will display "FAILED". Repeat the process if learning fails.
Please note: The remote control supplied with your Motion Vision will always work with the sound bar even if the sound bar is programmed to respond to an additional remote.
Please note: Not all commands have to be programmed and you may choose to program only commands you wish to use. When learning from a second remote, you will likely find the remote does not include buttons that directly correspond with all available Motion Vision commands. Some remotes offer 'function' buttons (F1, F2, etc.) that may be useful when programming commands unique to Motion Vision (such as 'Night Mode' or 'Optical 1').
Please note: Some remote controls offer discrete 'power on' and 'power off' buttons while others offer a single button to toggle power on and off. The learning function of the Motion Vision allows you to program either scenario.
Please note: There may be remote controls the Motion Vision can not learn correctly. Due to the number of available remotes it is impossible to advise which will or will not work. Most remote controls send out a single unique code that corresponds to each button. However, some remotes that are categorized as a "universal remote*" (including some satellite or cable TV remotes) send out a series of codes in sequence for each button (i.e. an identical preamble code followed by the actual unique button code). Devices such as the Motion Vision, with a 'learn' feature, have difficulty learning from remotes that send out a series of IR codes. When this problem is encountered the Motion Vision will likely respond as if the "Vol +" button was pressed, regardless of which button was actually pressed. If you experience problems learning commands from a third-party remote we recommend trying a different remote such as one offered by the companies listed above.
* "Universal remote" is used as a generic term to describe remotes designed to control multiple devices and is not specifically referencing remotes from
"URC (Universal Remote Control)".
