On the number keypad, enter the code for your source’s brand

Note: If all six buttons blink three times, you entered an invalid code. Repeat steps 3 and 4

If your source responds to basic functions, press Exit to save your settings

If your source does not respond to basic functions, press + on the volume button to select another code and test again for basic functionality. Repeat steps 5 - 7 until you find a code that works
