Programming the Remote Control to work with the TV
In order for the remote to transmit the correct signals to control the TV, the remote must
first be programmed with the 3-digit code corresponding to the make and model of TV in
use. This must be done for each Set Top Box (STB).
This is done in the following way:
•
Identify the make of the TV that is to be controlled. e.g; Sony, Magnavox,
Philips
•
Find the TV brand listed in the TV Brand Code Table in Appendix B.
•
Simultaneously press and hold the TV and OK buttons on the remote.
•
After approximately 2 seconds, the TV button will light.
•
Release the TV and Ok buttons – the TV button remains illuminated.
•
Now enter the 3-digit brand code according to the make of the TV that is
being controlled. (Each TV in the home could have a different code.)
•
As each of the digits are entered, the TV button light will briefly flash off
and on again.
•
When the third digit has been entered, the TV button light will go out.
•
If a brand code has been entered that the remote does not recognize, the
TV button will flash rapidly for a second and remain illuminated. If this
happens, re-enter the correct TV brand code.
•
Verify that the remote control works with the TV.
•
If no brand code is entered, or the brand code entered is incomplete, after
several seconds, the remote will exit the TV brand code entry mode and
the TV brand code will be unchanged.
•
The remotes are supplied by default with TV Brand Code 000.
Most TV makes have more than one brand code listed in the TV Brand Code Table – if
this is the case, try all brand codes that are listed for that make until a suitable match is
found. Many brand codes for remotes are included in the TV Brand Code Table on
page 17 –Appendix A
NOTE: This only applies to new customers or customers who have purchased a new
remote control.

Installation
Your picture will be delivered to the home via telephone line. The Cameron
Communications technician installing the service will install an ADLS modem capable of
delivering television service on up to 3 TV’s as well as High-Speed DSL Internet
Service.
The technician will be installing the proper cable from the ADSL modem to each Set Top
Box(STB). It is important that the ports labeled LAN 1 –LAN3 are connected to the
STBs and the port labeled LAN4 is for the High-Speed Internet service. Also, the cable
connected to the port labeled ADSL must remain plugged on at all times.

Turning on the Set Top Box and TV

TV. These are normal messages from the STB start-up process. (See below)
