You may use another remote as well but normally, it’s recommended to use a universal remote. It allows you to control the entire home theater, including your cable box, audio device, TV, and DVD player. Everyone likes universal remotes because they are compatible with a range of devices. It can be annoying to use two remotes to operate one thing, right? A universal remote frees you from the pain of swapping remotes every few seconds.

Note: In the kit, you will find a manual/sheet containing remote codes. It’s important to hold on to them since you will need them to operate your equipment. 

Steps to Program Your Charter Remote 

Now let’s get right into programming the remote. No rocket science is involved. All it takes is a few minutes, and you would be saving a lot of valuable time later on. Before getting started, locate the “setup” and/or “power” buttons on the remote. This will keep you from searching for the right buttons in the middle of the procedure.

Without further ado, let’s see how to set up the remote: 

  1. Find the 4-digit code of the device you are going to program. Look into the manual to find the find. 
  2. Turn on the device you would like to program with the remote (DVD players, VCR, or any other device)
  3. From the remote, press the relevant button to program the device 
  4. Hold and press the button to turn on the device you are programming. For instance, if you are programming the DVR, turn on the DVR by holding its power button.
  5. Use the remote’s keypad to enter the 4-digit code 
  6. Press the “power button on the remote and keep it pressed until the device turns off
  7. If the device does not turn off, you must start from step 1 again.
