Programming the TDS Telecom Remote

TDS-Telecom-Remote


You have your TDS Telecom remote (the one with the Cisco logo), but all you can use it with is your set-top box, so we are going to help you program your remote to control other devices. You can use the TV key to operate your television, the DVD button to operate the DVD player and the AUX key can be used for a VCR, a receiver, amplifier or your Home Theater in a Box.

Using a Device Code: Programming the TDS Telecom Remote

Using a pre-programmed code is the easiest method to program your remote, but finding the codes isn’t always easy. You can go here and download a pdf instruction manual, at the end of the manual is a huge list of codes that will work with different brands. It’s a long list to look through and it can be hard on the eyes, but it makes programming quick and easy.

If you find the code for your equipment follow these simple steps:

  1. Turn on the device you want to program to the remote
  2. Press and hold the correct mode key for the device (TV, DVD, or AUX) then press the OK key, when both keys are released the mode key will blink twice.
  3. Enter the 4-digit code that you found earlier and the mode key should blink three times. IF the mode key gives one long blink then the code entered was wrong.
  4. If the POWER button turns the device off then you have entered the correct code.

If There is No Device Code

If you can’t find the correct code for your device or just don’t want to have to peer at the teeny tiny chart of numbers to find the correct one then follow this method to program your TDS Telecom remote. This method is called auto-search and it might take a little longer than the above method.

Find the code for a TV or DVD Player;

  1. Turn on the device you want to program to the remote
  2. Press and hold the correct mode key for the device (TV or DVD) then press the OK key, when both keys are released the mode key will blink twice.
  3. Enter the code 922 and the mode key should blink twice
  4. Aim the remote at the device you are programming and press PLAY. When the device powers off it has found the correct code.
  5. Save the code by pressing the ENTER key and the mode key should flash three times. Now turn your device on and off to confirm you have the correct code. If it does not work then go back to step 1 and bypass the first code (after it turns off) by pressing the FF button when your unit turns off then pressing PLAY again, then next time your unit shuts down should be the correct code.

Find the code to program an AUX device;

  1. Turn on the device you want to program to the remote
  2. Press and hold the correct AUX key then press the OK key, when both keys are released the AUX key will blink twice.
  3. Enter the code 922 and the mode key should blink twice
  4. Aim the remote at the device you are programming and press PLAY. Then press the number 1 to program a VCR, 2 to program a receiver or tuner, 3 to program an amplifier, or 4 to program a Home Theater in a Box system.
  5. Press the PLAY button and point the remote at the device. When the device powers off it should have found the correct code.
  6. Save the code by pressing the ENTER key and the mode key should flash three times. Now turn your device on and off to confirm you have the correct code. If it does not work then go back to step 1 and bypass the first code (after it turns off) by pressing the FF button when your unit turns off then pressing PLAY again, then next time your unit shuts down should be the correct code.

Programming your TDS Telecomm remote isn’t difficult, as you can see it is just a few simple steps, unfortunately the instruction booklets usually make it look a lot more complex.
