Getting Started - Overview  
Control up to 6 Components  
The AVEX R6 remote control is designed to control  
up to six different Audio/Video components and  
operate virtually all brands of AUDIO, TV, DVD,  
VCR/DVR, SAT/CABLE and AUX (Light, Music  
Server, etc.) components.  
Component Buttons  
Once you have programmed the AVEX R6 for all  
of your components, all you need to do is press a  
component button and all the buttons on the AVEX  
R6 will work with that component. For example,  
when you press the TV component button, all the  
buttons on your AVEX R6 will operate your TV.  
If you press the DVD component button, all the  
buttons on the AVEX R6 will operate your DVD.  
Each time you press any of the buttons on the  
remote, the LED light in the component button  
will light up to indicate which component you  
are controlling.  
TV BUTTON  
Learning Capability  
The AVEX R6 has the ability to ‘learn’ functions from  
the original remote controls of other manufacturers,  
even if they are not in the Pre-programmed database.

Battery Installation  
Press the tab and remove the cover of the battery  
compartment located in the back of your remote.  
Insert the two AAA batteries (included in the pack-  
age) making sure to match the positive (+) and  
negative (-) symbols as shown in the diagram.  
Place the cover back over the battery compartment.  
INSERT BATTERIES  
CORRECTLY  
Low Battery Warning  
When the batteries are low and need to be  
replaced the component LED will quickly blink  
three times when you press the Power [ON] button.  
Couch Mode  
The AVEX R6 is designed to automatically turn itself  
off if a button is pressed for more than 30 seconds.  
This prevents battery power from being depleted  
should the remote accidentally slip between the  
couch cushions.

Special Advanced Features  
The AVEX R6 also offers the following special  
advanced features that can offer you many time-saving  
conveniences:  
MacroPower™ & Other Macro Buttons  
MacroPower is a unique feature that enables you  
to turn all your components ON or OFF, all at the  
same time, simply with the press of one button.  
The AVEX R6 has six Macro buttons that are  
designed to store up to 20 commands in each button.  
Pressing any one of the Macro buttons will send out  
the series of commands that are stored in that button.  
‘My Favorites’ (Favorite Channels)  
This is one of the most desirable features of the  
AVEX R6 remote control. Once it’s set up, you can  
select one of four favorite channels with the press of  
one button – without the need to type in a channel  
number. So, whether it’s CNN or the Food Network,  
your favorite viewing spot is just one click away.  
SimpleSound™ & Other ‘Punch Throughs’  
SimpleSound Volume Control is a dynamic feature  
that gives you total volume control over all the  
components in your system, even those that do not  
have their own built--in volume control, such as  
TIVO, DVD and VCR... saving you the hassle and  
inconvenience of constantly needing to switch  
between component modes on the remote. As an  
example, in order to increase the volume while  
watching a DVD, you would typically have to pick  
up the TV remote control to increase the volume.  
With the AVEX R6, you do not even have to press  
the TV component button. Once you program  
SimpleSound in your DVD mode, you will  
automatically have TV volume control in  
DVD mode.  
SimpleSound is what is called a ‘Punch Through’  
feature and is not limited to volume control. It can  
also be applied to Channel Control, Transport  
Control, and OSD Control.

Programming AVEX R6 using  
Pre-Programmed Codes  
There are three ways you can program your AVEX  
R6 using the component brand codes that are pre-  
programmed into the remote.  
• Quick Set-Up Method  
• Three-Digit Code Entry Method  
• Auto-Search Method  
The Quick Set-Up Method is a unique new feature  
that enables the fastest and easiest set-up by using  
one-digit codes for up to 10 major brands for each  
component. The Three-Digit Code Entry Method  
allows you to set-up the AVEX R6 using 3-digit codes  
for component brand names. It is also a fast and  
easy way to program the remote. The Auto-Search  
Method scans through all the brands in the remote  
control, one at a time. It should be used when either  
the Quick Set-Up or Three-Digit Code Entry Methods  
do not work.  
* * *  
Quick Set-Up Method  
STEP 1: Manually or using your old remote, turn  
on the component you want to program—for example,  
to program your TV, turn on your TV set.  
STEP 2: Point the AVEX R6 toward the component  
that you want to program (in this case the TV set)  
and press the component button (in this case the  
TV button). While keeping the component button  
pressed, press 1~0, in sequence, using the Number  
Pad. When the correct number is selected, the  
remote will send a POWER OFF command and the  
component will turn off. For example, the Sony  
Power Code is sent if you press the Number “1” button.  
STEP 3: Release the component button to save the  
code. The component LED light will blink three times  
to confirm that the code has been stored.  
Repeat the above three steps for other components.

Three-Digit Code Set-Up Method  
STEP 1: Find the 3-digit code numbers assigned  
to your brand from the lists in the back of this manual.  
The codes are listed by component category (i.e.,  
TV, VCR, DVD, etc.), then by brand name. For  
instance, if you would like to locate a code for a  
Sony television, first locate the TV category and  
then look for the Sony brand.  
STEP 2: Once you have located the 3-digit codes  
for each of the components that you wish to operate  
with your AVEX R6, write them ALL down on a  
piece of paper. It’s important that you write down  
all the codes listed for your brand because only  
one code is going to work with your component.  
STEP 3: Manually or using your old remote, turn  
on the component you want to program—for exam-  
ple, to program your TV turn on your TV set.  
STEP 4: On the AVEX R6, press the Component  
button that you want to program (in this case the  
button that says TV) and the SELECT [SEL] button  
at the same time. Hold down both buttons for 2  
seconds until the TV Component LED light turns on.  
This signals that you are in programming mode.  
IMPORTANT: You have 30 seconds to perform  
the next step while you are in programming mode.  
If you do not press a button within 30 seconds,  
the component LED light will turn off. The remote  
will exit the programming mode and you will  
have to start over.

STEP 5: Point the AVEX R6 toward the component  
(in this example the TV) and punch in the first 3-digit  
code that you wrote down for that specific compo-  
nent. Use the Number buttons 0~9 on the remote to  
punch in the code. The TV LED light will blink each  
time a number is pressed.  
NUMBER  
BUTTONS  
If the 3-digit code number you just punched in is  
the correct number, the component you are trying to  
program will turn off. If it did not turn off, enter the  
next code number from your list until it does turn off.  
STEP 6: Once you’ve entered the code number  
and the component has turned off, press the  
POWER button on the AVEX R6 remote to turn  
the component back on.  
Next test the VOLUME and CHANNEL buttons (or  
PLAY and STOP buttons for VCR and DVD) to make  
sure they all work. For example, perhaps your Sony  
TV turned off with code number 147, but the volume  
controls did not work properly. In this case, try the  
next code number listed for that component. Repeat  
Step 5 using the next code number until you find a  
perfect match.  
STEP 7: Once you’ve entered a correct code you  
must save it. Press the component button you just  
programmed (in this case TV) one more time to save  
the code number. The component LED light will blink  
three times to confirm that the code was successfully  
stored. Now when you press the TV component  
button, all of the buttons will work with your TV.  
Program the remaining components by repeating  
steps 3 through 7.  
IMPORTANT: If you have tried all the set-up  
codes in the list and the component still did not  
turn off after Step 5, either the Auto-Search Method  
(page 12) or the Learning Method (page 14) will  
help you program.
