To control connected devices using the remote
This player is equipped with a built-in IR Blaster that accepts remote commands and sends them to various connected devices to control them with your remote. This function works when the player is turned on.
When you set the player close to a connected device (as illustrated on the
right), you can control the device using the remote, including operations such as
adjusting the volume of the TV or an AV Receiver.
However, if you place the player in a location where IR signals cannot reach,
you cannot control connected devices with the built-in IR Blaster. In this case,
connect the supplied IR Blaster as follows:
Connect the IR Blaster cable to the player.
Place the IR Blaster so that the infrared transmitter points to the IR receiver
(sensor) on the device you want to control, as illustrated on the right.
