How to program your Spectrum remote control to your TV using different methods.
The first thing I would like to do is verify that the remote that you are using is the right one for your device. Generally, Spectrum Guide Remotes are used by most customers, but other models may be used by some. Use Spectrum’s remote user manual to make sure you are adhering to the guidelines correctly.
Take a look at the guidelines on How to program Spectrum Guide Remote to interact with your TV.
- For your remote control, you’ll need two AA-size batteries.
- You need to turn on the TV.
- These remote codes can be found on Spectrum’s remote guide page for the manufacturer of your TV. As an example, Samsung TVs of the modern era will use the code 12051.
- As soon as the input button illuminates two times, press the Menu and OK buttons together.
- Your remote should only be pressed once to turn the TV on.
- Finally, turn your TV off by pressing and holding the model number code.
It should take you no more than that to learn how to program your Spectrum remote. You may need to repeat the steps if that does not work.
In case the first step did not work, try these steps again:
- Press and hold Menu and OK buttons at the same time when the input button illuminates two times.
- Your TV’s model code should be entered
- When the input button blinks twice, it means it worked.
In the event that doesn’t work for you, try the steps again using another input code for your TV.
Note: Spectrum remotes should control most TVs, but they will not control streaming devices, such as Roku. The streaming device should come with its own remote for controlling the streaming service.
