Changing the RF Transmission Frequency  
The RF remote function may be affected by radio interference, etc. If this happens, you can  
change the RF transmission frequency.  
To change the RF remote transmission frequency:  
1. Open the battery cover on the rear.  
2. Change the RF switch setting.

After changing remote control’s RF frequency, you also must change the receiver’s RF recep-  
tion frequency.  
3. To change the receiver’s RF reception frequency.  
• Press and hold the RF BAND button (TAPE2/CD2 /MONITOR button) behind the receiver's  
front panel door for more than 2 seconds. Each time you do this, the RF reception frequen-  
cy switches between RF Band 1 and RF Band 2. Select the same band as the position num-  
ber of the remote’s RF switch.  
Remote Controllable Range  
Your LCD remote transmits RF signals to the receiver, and the receiver sends IR signals back  
to the remote.  
The remote’s range is about 20 ft  
provided there are no obstacles  
(see illustration to right).  
The remote transmits an infrared  
signal in addition to an RF signal.  
When RF operation is not possi-  
ble because of radio wave condi-  
tions, you can aim the remote  
towards the receiver and use it as  
2WAY LCD REMOTE CONTROL UNIT  
a conventional infrared remote  
control.

Since the LCD remote uses  
infrared signals to control other  
A/V components and devices,  
aim it towards the respective  
unit.

The following factors can maximize the performance of your LCD remote:  
1. Position the receiver’s RF antenna to achieve maximum RF range.  
2. Do not position the receiver near metal (such as heat ducts). Metal can absorb RF signals.  
3
 
3. Do not install the receiver where direct sunlight or high-frequency fluorescent lighting can  
shine directly into the infrared remote sensor. This can limit the remote’s operating range.  
4. Make sure that the remote’s range is not being affected by other radio frequency transmis-  
sions.  
5. Do not block the IR transmitter on the remote or on the receiver’s front panel . Even a brief  
blockage of the transmission (such as someone walking by) can cause the communication  
and feedback to become temporarily erratic. If this happens, press the CONFIRM/SHIFT  
button on the remote and it will resume normal operation (you might need to reenter the  
interrupted command).  
6. When the remote’s operating range gets shorter or the low battery indicator (  
on its LCD display, replace all 4 batteries:  
) flashes  
Programming the LCD Remote to Control Other Components  
Your LCD remote can be programmed to control almost any IR-controllable audio-video source  
component and television. If the component’s code is not already part of the remote’s exten-  
sive library, you can use the remote’s Learn feature to teach the component’s commands to  
it. You can also use the Learn function to expand the control capabilities of components with  
existing codes.  
1. Press the MUSIC or MOVIE button.  
The display will show:  
4. Use the  
and  
buttons to select “01:  
IR”, and press ‘Enter’. The display will show  
a list of the receiver’s input jack sets:  
5. Use the

3. Press ‘Setup’. The display will show:  
6. Use the  
and  
buttons to select the

Changing a Setup Code  
If you replace an existing component with a  
new one you will need to perform steps 1 -  
10 to program the remote to control the new  
component.

Deleting a Setup Code  
If you disconnect a component from the sys-  
tem and do not replace it, you can remove its  
control code from the remote.  
• If the manufacturer of your component is  
not listed, select ‘Nothing’ and press  
‘Enter. You can program the component’s  
functions using the remote’s Learning  
capability (see below).  
1. Repeat steps 1 - 6 above.  
2. In step 6, select “No Type” or “Delete”.  
• If you select “No Type”, the input will still  
appear when you select inputs using the  
remote’s MUSIC, MOVIE or TV buttons, but  
no component is associated with it.  
The display will show a list of control codes  
for your component:  
• If you select “Delete”, the remote deletes the  
input, and it does not appear when you  
select inputs using the remote’s MUSIC,  
MOVIE or TV buttons.  
8. Select the first control code on the list.  
Programming a Function in  
a Button (Learning)  
• If the component is a Kenwood component  
connected to the receiver via a System  
Control cable, select ‘System’. The remote  
will send all commands for the component  
to the receiver, which will control the com-  
ponent via the System Control cable.  
Your LCD remote can learn functions from  
almost any standard IR remote. The remote  
can learn commands to control a component  
that couldn’t be successfully programmed in  
the previous section, and the remote can  
learn codes to extend the functions of com-  
ponents that were suc-

• The remote can learn  
new functions onto  
the buttons marked  
gray in the illustration:  
The remote will send a “power” test signal to  
the component. If the component turns on,  
the code you selected was correct. If it does  
not turn on, try the next code on the list.  
Continue until one of the codes works. If  
none of the codes work, you can program the  
component’s functions using the remote’s  
Learning capability.

remote’s LCD display reverts to step 4.  
Repeat steps 4 through 9 for each compo-  
nent you want the LCD Remote to control.
