Just One Remote? Can I control my TV with my Freesat Remote

In a word yes, you are about to carry over basic functions like volume control to your Freesat box.

If you have the older Humax branded boxes check your manual if you still have it on details how to program the remote. If you no longer have you manual, no problem, just download it from our store for free. 

If you have the newer Arris, UHD 4K box see the details in the manual from this link below.

It very easy in both cases, just a matter of finding your code from the list to match your TV brand, then punching the code into the controller.


How do I programme my Freesat remote to control my TV? (Using Search Method)

You can use your Freesat remote control to turn your TV on and off, and to control the TV volume.

To do so, your Freesat remote control needs to discover which brand of TV you have. 

  1. Turn your Box and TV on. 
  2. Set the volume of your Box to maximum (you might want to turn down your TV’s volume a bit first).
  3. Press and hold both the Red button (this is not the standby or record button but next to yellow green blue) and AD button on your Freesat remote control for three seconds then release the buttons. The LED will light up and stay on to show that the remote is ready to be programmed.
  4. The remote control contains a list of different TV remote control signal codes. Use the Up and Down [P] arrow buttons to go through the list. (not volume or centre wheel) When your TV turns off, you have found the right code. 
  5. Press the OK button to tell the remote to save this code.
