The Acoustic Research Xsight™ Uno Advanced Universal Remote will change your home
entertainment experience forever. You can start using it right out of the box through the
guided setup on the full-color LCD screen. The Setup Guide that came with your remote helps
with the first steps.
The CD-ROM included with the Xsight™ Uno gives you the tools to tap into the real power
of this remote through the EZ-RC™ Remote Control Setup Wizard website. Expand and
customize features to control your entire home theater with simple one-touch activities (like
Watch TV or Listen to CD) and a favorite channel list.
This Owners Manual guides you through the remote menus that let you get the most from
your Xsight™ Uno.

Tour of the Remote
Your Xsight™ Uno remote control offers two ways of controlling your home entertainment
devices:
• the interactive LCD screen gives you the ultimate control over your home
entertainment system by letting you customize and simplify your home entertainment
experience
• hard keys let you control common device features, much like the keys on your original
remote controls
Hard keys
Power turns devices on and off.
GUIDE brings up the active device’s guide (if the active device
has guides, like satellite receivers or cable boxes, for example).

has menus). For DVD players, it brings up the disc menu.
INFO displays information about your video or audio signal.
EXIT leaves the device guide or menu.
+ and – (Channel) keys operate channel up/down functions in
video devices and preset up/down in audio devices.
(Go Back) takes you to the previous channel or menu/guide
screen on your device.

Tour of the Remote
ENTER/— operates channel enter and 10+ digit entry. For
digital TV channels, this key also separates the main channel
from the subchannel. For example, to choose the channel 59.1,
press “5”, “9”, ENTER/–, and “1”.
Interactive LCD screen
Your remote’s customizable LCD screens can be set up via the remote or by connecting to
your PC. To select an item on the remote screen, all you have to do is highlight and select.
To highlight an
item: Use the up
and down arrow
keys beneath the
screen.
To select an
item: Press the
key.
Many remote menus have more items than will fit on a single
screen. If you don’t see the item you want on a menu screen,
look for the arrow in the lower-right corner of the screen...
that means there are more items in this menu. To access these
items, just keep pressing the down arrow when you get to the
last item showing.
The top of the remote also offers Shortcut keys to give you
one-touch access to some of the remote’s advanced functions:
(Home/Back) goes back one screen in the menus.
Holding this key down for three seconds takes the remote to
the Home Screen.
(Activities) accesses the Activities screen directly.
(Favorites) accesses the Favorites screen directly.
(Devices) accesses the Devices screen directly.

The Devices menu gives you direct access to all the devices
your remote is set up to control. Selecting a device puts the
remote into the correct mode to control the device selected. If
you select TV, for instance, the remote will control your TV.
Once you’ve selected a device to control, the remote screen
displays the “soft” keys for that device. These are keys that
your original device remote may have that the Xsight™ Uno
does not have physical (or “hard”) keys for.
Devices can be set up using the remote (via Device Setup or
Learning in the Settings menu), or using PC Setup.
What is Quick Power?
The Xsight™ Uno offers another option for quickly turning
multiple devices on or off: Quick Power. This feature puts
the power commands for all your devices on a single screen,
where you can manage your home entertainment system.
To use Quick Power:

Activities you’ve set up using the EZ-RC™ Remote Control
Setup Wizard website.

IMPORTANT: Activities can only be created or edited using
the EZ-RC™ Remote Control Setup Wizard website.
Watch DVD
To access the
“Activities” Screen at
any time: Press the

An activity lets you condense a multi-step action to a single
touch. For example, you can create an activity called “Watch
Movie” that will automatically execute all the steps needed to
start watching a movie on your home theater system.
When you have set up your Activity, it appears on your remote
screen in the Activities menu. When you select this Activity,
the remote automatically goes through the steps you set up.
NOTE: You can also tell the remote exactly what keys
control which devices when you’re “watching a movie”—like
having the transport keys (play, reverse, fast forward, etc.)
control the DVD player but the volume keys control your
A/V receiver.
Setting Up Activities
1. Connect the Xsight™ Uno to your PC using the supplied
USB cable.
2. Double-click on the EZ-RC™ Remote Control Setup
Wizard icon on your PC desktop to launch.
NOTE: If you haven’t already installed the EZ-RC™
Remote Control Setup Wizard on your PC, you can

remote. See the Setup Guide that came with your
remote for instructions.

Volume Control
Volume Control lets you set a single device to control your
entire home entertainment system’s volume. For example,
if you have the sound from your TV and DVD player routed
through your A/V receiver, you can tell the Xsight™ Uno to
control volume on the A/V receiver regardless of which device
mode you’re in. So, if you’re using the rest of the keys on the
remote to control your DVD player, you can still control just
the A/V receiver with the volume keys.
You can also exempt some or all of your devices from the
volume control—the remote will send volume commands to
these devices when in these device modes.
