Setting the ID on the remote controller
The controller ID can be set from 00-99; This is useful when there are two DVR in close proximity to each
other. The two controllers can be set to use two different ID so they will not interfere with each other.
The controller ID must be set in both the remote controller and the DVR. To set the ID on the controller, follow the instructions below:
1) Push and hold the ID button until the red light stays on.
