4DTV model 922 Remote Control

The 4DTV 4-in-1 remote control can operate your satellite receiver, most VCR, TV, and AUX may be programmed to control and additional device by following the simple programming instructions presented here. In addition, your remote control is both UHF and IR ready, so that you may use it from virtually any location within your home on your 4Dtv receiver(s).

Remote Control Range

Typical UHF range is 35 to 120 feet. The specific UHF range of the remote control in your system is affected by many factors. Wall and house construction materials, IRD location and other components co-located with the receiver can all affect the performance of the UHF transmission range. If the range in your installation is inadequate you can improve the performance of UHF range in several ways:

  1. Move the "whip" antenna away from the components by adding a short length of properly terminated 75-ohm coaxial cable. Small changes in the positioning of the antenna can make large changes in performance.

  2. Add a 10dB UHF-RF amplifier between the "whip" antenna and the input to the IRD. These small amplifiers are available at most electronics parts suppliers such as Radio Shack. This type of amplifier will boost the signal coming into the receiver and can help to extend the UHF range of the remote control.

  3. Use existing antenna or cable wiring in your house to relocate the supplied "whip" antenna or a small set of ‘rabbit ears’ to a more central location in your home. Combining this with the RF amplifier described above will provide you with maximum range.

Using Your Remote

The 4DTV remote control is set at the factory to control all of the 4DTV receiver functions, but in order to use it to operate your TV and VCR as well, you will need to "program" it for the brand of TV and VCR you own.

The 4DTV remote control has four main modes of operation: 4DTV mode, TV mode, VCR mode and AUX mode. This means that when you press the 4DTV, TV, VCR or AUX keys on the remote control, you enable it to control each of these devices, one at a time. Naturally, some of the remote control keys have more than one function, depending upon which mode you are using at the time. Keep this in mind as you read the descriptions for each remote control key. Also, keep in mind that some 4DTV functions are available only within 4DTV mode. Among these special functions are access to the 4DTV menus through the OPTIONS key, use of the Interactive Program Guide (IPG) through the GUIDE key, and the ability to select a satellite by using the SAT key. In addition, you can assume that if you see a key on the 4DTV remote that you have never seen on a TV or VCR remote control, it is only useful for 4DTV functions and can only operate when the remote is in the 4DTV mode.

Programming the Volume Control Crossover

Your remote control unit is programmed from the factory to control the volume of your television set when you are using the remote control in SAT mode. You can choose to have the Sat mode control the volume of your satellite receiver directly, instead. The AUX mode can also be programmed to control the audio from the TV or SAT device. To program your remote control for this function:

  • Enter the programming mode (press and hold a mode button for three seconds, until it begins to blink) using the SAT mode key or the AUX mode key.
  • While the SAT/AUX mode key is flashing, press and release the SAT mode key if you want SAT volume control or press and release TV mode key to control the volume and mute on the TV.
  • The SAT/AUX mode key will light as you press and release the programming mode key, flash three times rapidly, then extinguish.
  • The remote control will now control the volume of the SAT/TV device when in the SAT mode.

Multiple 4DTV UHF Frequencies

If you have more than one 4DTV receiver you may want to prevent the remote controls from affecting the other receivers. This may also be important if your neighbor has a 4DTV. To prevent this kind of interference you must "pair" each remote control with one receiver. In order to do this you will have to assign a new "address" to each pair of remote controls and receivers so that each pair functions independently of the others.

To assign a unique "address" to a pair of remote controls and receivers:

  • Press the POWER key on the receivers front panel to turn it on.

  • Press the UP key and the DOWN key on the front of the receiver at the same time. The receiver will display two figures: first an "A," then a second number from 0 to 3. All together, it looks like this: "A 0." The second figure is also known as the "address" to which we referred earlier.

  • Press the UP or DOWN keys on the receiver’s Front Panel to change the address to 0, 1, 2, or 3.

  • Press the ENTER key on the front panel to memorize the change. Failure to do this will cause the receiver to reset to the factory mode of "A 0" the next time the power is cycled.

  • Press the POWER key to exit this mode

  • On the remote control that you plan to use with the receiver, press and hold down the 4DTV key for about three seconds until the LED flashes.

  • On the remote control, enter the numbers "00" and the third number (the address) that you already have entered on the Front Panel of the receiver (either 1, 2, or 3). If the remote control accepts the new address, the LED will flash rapidly several times. The four possible address combinations are "000," "001," 002’" and "003."

Master Power

  • Press and hold 4Dtv/SAT button until the LED blinks, release the 4Dtv/SAT button, and press and release POWER, the LED light will now stay light, press POWER again and the LED will blink a few times and return to normal state.
  • Now when you press power it will turn on and off all three pieces (4Dtv, TV, and VCR) with one press of the power button. To get rid of Master Power, simply repeat the process.

Programming the Remote Control

  1. Turn on the connected component for programming.

  2. Use the table provided below to find the brand of your TV, VCR or auxiliary (AUX) component.

  3. After the manufacturer’s brand name is a three digit code number (or several three digit code numbers).

  4. Press and hold the TV, VCR or AUX key on the 4DTV remote control for at least three seconds – until the light (mode button) on your remote flashes.

  5. If you are programming the TV or VCR key continue to step 6. If you are programming the AUX key, first press AUX and then SAT, TV, or VCR mode key to specify the type of device to be controlled before proceeding to step 6.

  6. When the light flashes (AUX light will remain steady), key in the first of the three digit codes (listed in the table) for your component using the number keys on the remote control. Make sure to do this accurately and without a long delay. If programming the AUX key for a second satellite receiver use one of the following SAT codes: 000, 001, 002, 003.

  7. If the remote control accepts the code, you will see several rapid flashes of the light. If it does not flash repeat steps 4, 5, and 6. After the remote accepts the code, press the POWER key on the remote control to make sure the remote control is able to turn your component off. This means it is functioning properly.

  8. If your component does not respond to the remote control, even though it has "accepted" the manufacturer’s code, repeat steps 4, 5, and 6 using the second three-digit code from the table. If this does not work try the third code, etc., until the remote control accepts the code and your component responds to the remote control POWER key.

    *Note* Some cable box brands are programmable using these instructions. Check the table that appears below for applicable cable box brand and codes. You will press the TV key to programm the cable box. Your remote can only accept a TV or cable box code for this programming step.

  9. Make a note of the correct code for your TV and VCR and store it in a safe and convenient place. You may need it for future reference. If the batteries on the remote control die or you remove them you will need to reprogram the remote with these codes.

If You Cannot Find a Compatible Code in the Tables (Scanning)

If you try to program your 4DTV remote control using the three-digit codes, and the remote control does not work correctly, you may be able to find a code that works by using the "scanning" process.

  1. Turn on the TV or VCR – depending upon whether you wish to program the 4DTV remote control for your TV or VCR.

  2. Press the TV key (or VCR key) for at least three seconds – until the LED blinks.

  3. Press the same key (TV or VCR) again, but don’t hold it. The LED will now remain on without blinking. This means that the remote control is now able to search for a code that works with your TV or VCR.

  4. The following steps explain how to "scan" through the TV (or VCR) codes stored in your remote control by using the UP & DOWN keys. (The LED will not be lit while the UP & DOWN keys are depressed.)

    • While pointing the remote control at your TV (or VCR), press the UP key to scan upward to the next code.

    • If the transmitted code is the correct on, your TV (or VCR) will turn off, responding as if its POWER key were pressed.

    • If your TV (or VCR) does not respond, depress the UP key to try the next code. When your TV (or VCR) turns on or off as a result of the transmitted code, you will know that you have found the correct code.

    • When you have found the correct code (power to your TV or VCR is toggled on or off), press the TV (or VCR) key. This will store the manufacturer’s code. The LED will then flash rapidly several times and turn off. The remote control will now resume its normal operations.

Verifying your TV, VCR, or AUX mode codes

You can verify the accepted programming codes for each mode by following these steps.

  1. Press the TV, VCR, AUX key for at least three seconds- until the LED blinks.
  2. Press the "INFO" key.
  3. The LED will blink, indicating the code of your TV, VCR or auxiliary component in the following sequence. For example, if your TV code is for a Good brand TV (code 104) the blink pattern will be:
    • Pause>long blink "1;"
    • Pause>short blink "0;"
    • Pause>long blink, long blink, long blink, long blink, "4."
    A zero in the code will always be represented by a short blink.

  4. For the AUX mode only, after the code is verified the appropriate mode key will blink to indicate the component being controlled.
