For the customers in the U.S.A. WARNING
This equipment has been tested and found to comply with the limits for a Class B digital device, pursuant to Part 15 of the FCC Rules. These limits are designed to provide reasonable protection against harmful interference in a residential installation. This equipment generates, uses, and can radiate radio frequency energy and, if not installed and used in accordance with the instructions, may cause harmful interference to radio communications. However, there is no guarantee that interference will not occur in a particular installation. If this equipment does cause harmful interference to radio or television reception, which can be determined by turning the equipment off and on, the user is encouraged to try to correct the interference by one or more of the following measures: Reorient or relocate the receiving antenna. Increase the separation between the equipment and receiver. Connect the equipment into an outlet on a circuit different from that to which the receiver is connected. Consult the dealer or an experienced radio/TV technician for help. You are cautioned that any changes or modifications not expressly approved in this manual could void your authority to operate this equipment.

Installing the Batteries

Slide open the battery compartment and insert two size AA (R6) batteries (not supplied). Be sure to line up the + and on the batteries with the + and on the battery compartment.
2 Aim the Remote Commander at the component and press a button to check if that button works. For example, press the POWER button to see if it works on your component. 3 Check that the other buttons of the Commander is operating the corresponding functions of the component.

Operating a Component

1 Press the button of the desired component on the Commander. 2 Point the Commander directly at the component. 3 Press the button for the function you want to use. See Remote Button Descriptions for complete descriptions of the buttons on the Commander.
If the Commander Doesnt Seem to Be Working.
First, try repeating these setup procedures using the other codes listed for your component (see the supplied Component Code Numbers). If after trying all the codes listed for your component you still cannot get the Commander to work properly, try the search method described in Searching for the Correct Code.
Controlling the Volume of Video Components Connected to an Audio System
The Commander is factory preset based on the assumption that you hear the sound of your video components from your TVs speakers, and that you hear the sound of your audio components from the loudspeakers connected to your receiver (or amplifier).
Be sure to wait for about three seconds in step 2 above. While you are holding down the macro key and waiting, the programmed signals are transmitted; therefore, if you are aiming the Commander at your component, the programmed operations may be performed before you go on with the procedure.
Notes on Using the Remote Commander
Basically, use this Commander in the same way as the Commanders supplied with your components. Using this Commander will not increase the functions of your components. The functions of the Commander are limited to the functions of the components themselves. For example, if your TV does not have a MUTING function, the MUTING button on this Commander will not function with your TV. Some functions of the component may not work with this Commander. If your cable box can control volume, be sure to set its volume switch to a medium position. If the volume on the cable box is turned down completely, you will not be able to adjust your TVs volume with the Commander.

There may be cases you may turn on/off the cable box by pressing the CH+ or CH buttons on the Commander. If your cable box can control volume, be sure to set its volume control to a medium position. If the volume on the cable box is turned down completely, you will not be able to adjust your TVs volume with the Commander.
When to replace the batteries
Under normal conditions, batteries will last up to six months. If the Commander does not operate properly, the batteries might be worn out. Replace the batteries with new ones.
You can write down the code number on the label inside the battery compartment lid.

Troubleshooting

If you have problems setting up or using the Commander: When setting up the Commander, carefully go through the procedures described in Setting the Code. If the code thats listed first for your component doesnt work, try all the codes for your component - in the order in which theyre listed. If all the codes fail to work (or if your component is not listed in this manual), try using the procedures in Searching for the Correct Code. Check that youre aiming the Commander directly at the component, and that there are no obstructions between the Commander and the component. Make sure the batteries youre using are not worn out, and that theyre inserted correctly. Check that the button of the TV, VCR, CBL/SAT, RCVR, CD, AUX or DVD is pressed to choose your desired component. Check that the component has infrared remote capability. For example, if your component didnt come with a remote commander, it probably isnt capable of being controlled by a remote commander. If your video components are connected to an audio system, make sure youve set up the Commander as described in Controlling the Volume of Video Components Connected to an Audio System. Should any problem persist, reset the Commander to the factory setting by pressing the POWER, TV/VIDEO and VOL buttons simultaneously.

Searching for the Correct Code
If youve tried all the code numbers listed for your component and you still cannot get the Commander to work (or if your component is not listed in the Component Code Numbers tables), try these steps. 1 Power on the component you want to set up. Insert a tape or disc if necessary. 2 Press the SET button with a ball-point pen tip etc., and release it. 3 Press the button of the component on the Commander that you want to set up. 4 Press and release the CH+ button. Then press and release the POWER button. 5 Repeat step 4 until the correct code number is found. Each time you press the CH+ button and then the POWER button, a new code number will be transmitted. Keep trying until your component operates by receiving the transmitted signal from the Commander (e.g., the power turns off, the CH+ function works, playback starts, etc.) Be patient as you do this; it may take about 100 tries until the correct code number is located. 6 When the correct code is found, press the ENT button to store the code number in the Commanders memory. 7 Check that the Commander is operating the other functions of your component by pressing the corresponding buttons on the Commander. If they seem to be working properly, youre done setting up the Commander. If the component does not operate properly, repeat steps 1 to 6 and search for another code. If you still cannot get the Commander to work properly, see Troubleshooting.

Setting Up the Remote Commander
About Presetting the Commander
The Commander is preset at the factory to operate Sony brand components. If youre using the Commander with a Sony component, you wont need to preset the Commander before you start using it. To set up the Commander to use with other (non-Sony) manufacturers components, or to use with a component that is not preset at the factory, youll need to follow the instructions in this manual to preset the Commander with the correct code number for your components. (See the supplied Component Code Numbers also.)
Component that can be preset TV VCR Button TV VCR Factory setting Sony TV Sony VHS VCR Sony receiver Sony CD player Sony tape deck Sony DVD player
Do not mix old batteries with new ones or mix different types of batteries together. If the electrolyte inside the battery should leak, wipe the contaminated area of the battery compartment with a cloth and replace the old batteries with new ones. To prevent the electrolyte from leaking, remove the batteries when you plan not to use the Commander for a long period of time.
* If you assign an audio component on the CBL/SAT, CD, AUX or DVD button, you can control the volume of the receiver (or amplifier) on the RCVR button. If you assign video components on these buttons, you can control the volume of the TV.
If you have programmed the Channel Macro function for TV operation, the button used as a macro key cannot be used for PIP operation.

Setting the Code

Follow the steps 1 and 2 below for each component you plan to use with the Commander.
Step 1: Entering the Code Number
1 See the supplied Component Code numbers, and find the threedigit code number for the desired component. If more than one code number is listed, use the number thats listed first to complete the steps below. For example, if youre setting up a Philips VCR, you would use the code number 035. If your component isnt listed, see Searching for the Correct Code. 2 Press the SET button with a ball-point pen tip etc., and release it. 3 Press the button of the component that you want to set up.
Thus you can control the volume of your TV or receiver (or amplifier) while operating a video or audio component without first having to press the TV or RCVR button. For example, to control the volume for your VCR channels, you dont need to press the TV button first. However, if your video components are connected to an audio system, you probably hear your TVs or VCRs sound from the loudspeakers connected to your receiver (or amplifier), not from your TV speakers. In this case, you need to change the factory setting so that you can control the volume of your video components without first having to switch to the receiver (or amplifier). To change the factory setting for the volume control, follow the procedures below.
Setting a channel with a single button (Channel macro function)
You can program the Channel Macro function on any of the buttons listed below (macro keys). For example, instead of pressing , , and then ENT button to change the TV channel, you can perform these operations by pressing only the N button. The macro keys are: N, m, M, x, X, and zREC. (During TV, cable box, or digital satellite receiver operations only.) The series of operations that can be programmed must be consisted of two to four sequential pressings of to buttons or ENT button.
Operating a digital satellite receiver
