You just got a new TV, DVD or stereo system and the problem is that your Charter Cable Remote doesn’t work on it anymore. The Charter 1060BC1 remote that you received with your cable box comes pre-programmed to work with your cable box, a Toshiba DVD player, a Pioneer audio system and an RCA TV. Even if you started out with this equipment, the odds are pretty good that your new equipment is something entirely different, so we are going to help you program your remote to work with your new equipment.

If you don’t have one of the standard pre-programmed pieces of equipment then you just need to let the remote know. There are a few more steps involved than for your standard remote, but we make them easy for you.

Programming Your Charter Cable Remote

  1. Turn on the device
  2. Press the corresponding device key that you wish to program (AUX, DVD, TV, DBL) and it should blink once
  3. Press and hold the SET UP key until the selected mode key blinks twice
  4. Enter the five digit code for your device manufacturer, if you do not know it then it can be found here. If the code is entered correctly the selected mode key will blink twice, if it is entered wrong there will be one long blink and you need to reenter the code.
  5. Point the remote at the device and attempt to shut it off by pressing the PWR button. If it does not shut off then redo steps 2-5 with the next code for your device.

Repeat these steps for each device you wish to program.

No Code, No Problem

Sometimes you just can’t find a code for your device, that’s not a big deal, it might take a little longer, but we can make the remote find your devices.

  1. Turn on the device
  2. Press the corresponding device key that you wish to program (AUX, DVD, TV, DBL) and it should blink once
  3. Press and hold the SET UP key until the selected mode key blinks twice

  1. Aim the control at your unit and press the POWER Button
  2. Press CH+ until the device turns off.
  3. Press Setup to lock the code and the device key should blink twice

Repeat these steps for each device you wish to program.

Unlocking Your Remote Channels

The remote is programmed, by default, to operate your cable box the number keys, channel keys and last key will only operate your cable box. However, you can unlock them so those keys can be used on your VCR, TV, or other devices and here is how to do it;

  1. Press the CBL button and it should blink once
  2. Press and hold the SET UP key until the CBL button blinks twice
  3. Using the number keys enter – – and your CBL key should blink twice
  4. Press the CH- key once and the CBL key should blink four times

Your unlocked remote can now be used to change channels on your other devices such at the TV or VCR.

Locking Channel Control

Sometimes you find that you were just happier when your remote only changed channels on the cable box, so it is easy to set back to controlling your cable box only.

  1. Press the CBL button and it should blink once
  2. Press and hold the SET UP key until the CBL button blinks twice
  3. Using the number keys enter – – and your CBL key should blink twice
