Innovage Jumbo Universal Remote Instructions
By William Pullman
The Innovage Jumbo Universal Remote is a device that can operate multiple electronics systems with one control. The Jumbo Universal Remote supports cable, television, VCR, DVD and satellite systems. The remote control takes only a few minutes to set up and has the ability to accept input codes for the different devices or search for the devices' codes.
Direct Code Entry
The Innovage Universal Remote controls several devices once you input a code into the remote for your specific devices. The instruction manual contains hundreds of codes for the more popular device manufacturers. If you know the make and model of the device you wish to control, consult the instruction manual for the proper code.
To enter the code into the remote, turn on the device you want to add. Point the remote control at the device and hold the "Code Search" button until the LED light is solid red. Press the button for the device you want to set, such as "TV" or "DVD." The light will blink once and then stay solid red. Use the number buttons on the remote to enter the first code associated with your device. Once the code is inserted, the LED light will turn off. Point the remote at the device and press the "On/Off" button. If the device turns off, the code is correct. If the device does not turn off, repeat the preceding steps using the next code on the list.
You may find that the manufacturer of the device you want to add to the remote is not listed in the instruction manual or you do not have access to the manual to find the codes. The Jumbo Universal Remote has an automatic code search that will scroll through each of the codes until it finds the correct code for your device.
To use the code search, turn on the device you want to set. Point the remote at the device and hold the "Code Search" button until the LED is solid red. Press the corresponding button for the device you wish to set, such as "TV" or "DVD." With the remote pointed at the device, repeatedly press the "On/Off" button. Continue to do this until the device powers off. When it shuts off, press the "Enter" button to set the remote control. Use the "On/Off" button and see if the device turns on again. If it does, the setting is complete. If it does not, attempt the code search again and be sure to press the "Enter" button quickly when the device turns off.
Using the Remote
The buttons on the Jumbo Universal Remote are all similar to the types of buttons found on standard remote controls. The buttons have the same labels, making the transition to a different remote control easy. The remote control does require you to press the button of the device you want to control prior to trying to control that device. For example, if you want to operate your DVD player, press the "DVD" button before using any of the other buttons.
