Programming Your Remote for TV and other Devices

Use the TV remote control setup tool to program your U-verse TV and other devices. Once programmed, you can use your U-verse remote to control other devices in your entertainment center. It takes just a few minutes to program your:

  • TV
  • DVD
  • Auxiliary inputs

Using the U-verse TV menu to program your remote

The U-verse TV menu Remote Control Setup option can help you program your remote, TV, DVD player, and other home entertainment devices. Choose the remote model or device you want to program and follow the prompts.

Use auto code search or manually program a remote

There are two ways to program your remote. We recommend using auto code search, but you can also manually enter manufacturer codes for your TV, VRD, or DVD. Use the manual option when programming an older TV or other auxiliary device.

Turn your smartphone or tablet into a remote

Tired of misplacing your TV remote? Turn your iPad, iPhone, or Android device into an easy-to-use remote control. After you download the U-verse Easy Remote app, you can control channels, play, pause, and rewind your favorite shows.

Controlling volume & channel selection

Easily program your S10 or S20 remote to control the volume and channel selection on your TV, DVD, or VCR.

Restore default remote settings

Whether you have an S10, S20, or Point Anywhere remote, there may be times when you need to reset your remote and clear any programming. Some examples are the purchase of a new TV or auxiliary item, or when you change your set-top-box.
