Programming your remote

The universal remote control for your system can control other devices, like a cable box or Blu-ray player that is connected to your product. Learn how to program the universal remote to control a connected device.

To program your remote:

  1. On the remote control, press the System button
  2. Scroll right to select Remote Control, then press the Enter button
  3. Scroll down to select IR Control and confirm it is (or set it to) Off
  4. Scroll down to select TV Control, then press the Enter button
  5. Scroll up or down to select the source used to change TV channels, then press the Enter button. (For example, if you have a cable box connected to CBL-SAT on the system console, select CBL-SAT)
  6. Scroll up to select TV Brand, then press the Enter button.
  7. Scroll to select the TV brand, then press the Enter button
  8. Scroll down to select TV Code, then press the Enter button
  9. Test the remote:
    • If it controls your device, press the Enter button to finish
    • If it does not control your device or has limited functionality, repeat these steps with the next code for the brand.
Repeat steps 6 through 8 to program your remote for each device connected to your system, but select [source] Brand and [source] Code instead of TV Brand and TV Code. (For example, to control a cable box connected to CBL-SAT on the system console, select CBL-SAT Brand and CBL-SAT Code in steps 6 through 8.)

Note: Since the remote does not have an AUX power button, a device connected to AUX cannot be powered on and off using the Bose remote.

Tip: Your system console controls other devices, not your remote. If you have difficultly controlling a device, connect an IR emitter. A maximum of three emitters can be used with your system.
  1. Plug in the emitter to the IR Emitter jack on the system console
  2. Place the flat side of the IR emitter on or near the remote sensor of the device(s) to be controlled.
    Tip: The remote sensor on the device is often a small translucent plastic on the front of the device.

To connect an IR emitter:

Note: A maximum of three emitters can be used with the system (the original emitter plus up to two chained accessory emitters).
  1. Plug in the emitter to the IR Emitter jack on the system console
  2. Place the flat side of the IR emitter on or near the remote sensor of the device(s) to be controlled

To use the TV sensor, follow these steps:

  1. Connect the TV sensor to the TV Sensor jack on the media center connection panel. (On the panel, the TV Sensor jack is immediately above two other jacks of the same type: the IR Emitter, and Serial Data jacks)
  2. Turn the TV on and select the correct input
  3. Press the System button on the remote
  4. Press the right arrow until the Video icon is selected, and press Enter
  5. Press the down arrow until "TV Power Status" is selected
  6. Move the flat side of the TV sensor slowly around the back of the TV until TV Power Status indicates: "TV On"
  7. Attach the TV sensor to this location with the adhesive strip provided
  8. Press the up arrow until "TV Power" is selected, and press Enter
  9. Press the down arrow until "Automatic" is selected, and press Enter
  10. Press the Exit button to leave the System menu
Note: An "OFF" command will only be sent to the TV if the Bose system automatically turned on the TV and detects that the TV is, in fact, on. If the TV is turned on manually or the Bose system cannot detect that the TV is on, it will not send an "OFF" command.
