We’ve all been there before: you’ve purchased a new TV, picked up a new NextBox for the house, or the kids pushed a bunch of buttons on the remote and now it needs to be reprogrammed.
So, you’re left wondering: “How did I do it last time? What buttons do I press again?” If you haven’t kept your NextBox manual on hand you may be wondering how you’re going to tackle this living room conundrum.
Last month I highlighted a wonderful thread where users in our Community Forums outlined how to skip or hide unsubscribed channels in your NextBox guide. Today I’d like to highlight another great submission from our users who took the time to detail the programming methods along with the required codes for your respective TV model.
First, you need to determine whether you prefer the Auto Scanning Method or the Manual Method.
Auto Scanning Method
- Turn ON your TV.
- Press the TV button once. The TV button will flash once.
- Press and hold the SETUP button until the TV button flashes twice, then release.
- Press 9 9 1 on the number pad. The TV button will flash twice.
- Aim the remote TOWARDS your TV, press the PWR button once.
- Repeatedly press the CH+ button until your TV turns off. The remote will cycle through all possible codes until a match is found. You may need to press the CH+ button many times before finding a match.
- Once the TV turns off, press the SETUP button once to lock the code. The TV button will flash twice.
- Confirm the remote is programmed correctly by pressing the PWR button to turn on your TV.
TIP: To program the remote to control other devices, repeat the above instructions using the mode button for that device (DVD, AUX or AUD).
- Find the code for the device you wish to control in the Rogers Remote Code Library.
- Turn ON the device you wish to control.
- Find the mode button for the device you wish to program (TV, VCR, DVD, etc.) Press it once. The button will blink once.
- Press and hold the SETUP button until the selected mode button blinks twice.
- Enter the 4-digit code for the device. The selected mode button blinks twice. (If the mode button shows a single long blink, the entry is invalid. Try steps 3 and 4 again using a different code if available.)
- Point the remote at the device and press PWR button. The device should turn off. If it does not, repeat steps 3 and 4, using a different code for your device, if available.
- If you continue to experience problems, try the auto-scanning mode detailed above.
There you have it friends. All the steps you’ll need to program your Rogers Remote to control all your home theatre devices.
