How To Program Xbox 360 Remote To Your TV

Michael July 23, 2012

Got a remote for your Xbox 360 but need to program it to change the channel, volume etc on your TV? There are a few techniques for doing this, but it is easier than you’d imagine.

Manual Technique

The first technique is to enter a code on the remote that relates to the TV you are using.

1. Find the code for your TV in this PDF document that Microsoft have produced.

2. Turn on your TV and point the remote towards it.

3. Press and hold the TV and OK buttons simultaneously for two seconds. All of the buttons on the remote will then light up for two seconds, after which only the numeric TV buttons will remain lit.

4. Enter the code for your TV.

5. Press the TV button again to save the code and exit. All of the buttons on the remote will blink three times to confirm your selection.

Automatic Technique

The other option is to use the remote to scan through codes until you find one that is compatable with your TV.

You can send a sequence of codes to from your remote to your TV to find the right code for your TV, if you do not know it. This is the easiest of the options as it saves you from having to find the code for your TV in the PDF file mentioned above.

1. Turn on your TV and point the remote towards it.

2. Press and hold the TV and OK buttons simultaneously for two seconds. All of the buttons on the remote will then light for two seconds, after which only the numeric TV buttons (1–12) will remain lit.

3. Press the Channel Up/Down button to send a series of off commands to your TV. Repeat until the TV turns off.

Note Allow enough time for the TV to respond to the command and turn off after you press the Channel Up/Down button. Some TVs take more time to react to the off command than other TVs.

4. Press the TV button to save the code and exit. All buttons on the remote will blink three times to confirm the code.
