II. AUTO-SEARCH - WILLOW REMOTE

Make sure your TV set is turned on. (The set-top box does not need to be turned on to perform this programing feature)

  1. Press and hold both the 1 and the 3 buttons at the same time on the remote control for approximately 3 seconds until the TV standby button remains lit, then release both buttons
  2. Point the remote control at the TV set and press and hold down the TV Standby Button or the Mute button on the remote control
  3. When the TV either turns off or brings up the MUTE symbol on screen, then release that button. This may take up to 5 minutes to happen
  4. Press and hold the Text/SHIFT button and then at the same time press the STOP button to finish setting up the TV control mode. The TV standby button will go out. The TV control function is now programmed into the remote control.

Should the TV brand be not successfully found by the remote control then the TV standby button will flash rapidly and the remote control will revert to normal operation. No TV brand code will be stored.

NOTE: If Auto-Search can not pair your C Spire remote with your TV, please continue to Step III below.

The remote control can also be programmed to operate certain functions of your TV set. To program this functionality then perform the following instructions in sequence. In case of a mistake, the process can be exited at any point by pressing and holding the Text/SHIFT button and then at the same time pressing the STOP button. The remote control will revert to normal operation and no TV brand code will be stored.

  1. Determine the manufacturer of your TV set
  2. Download and open a copy of the Willow Remote Manual

  5. Press and hold both the 1 and the 3 buttons at the same time on the remote control for approximately 3 seconds until the TV standby button remains lit, then release both buttons
  6. Now enter the 4 digit manufacturer code for your TV set. On each digit entry the TV standby button will flash. On entry of the 4th digit the TV standby button will flash then remain lit
  7. Point the remote control at the TV set and press and hold down the TV Standby Button or the Mute button on the remote control
  8. When the TV either turns off or brings up the MUTE symbol on screen, then release that button. This may take a few minutes to happen
  9. Press and hold the Text/SHIFT button and then at the same time press the STOP button to finish setting up the TV control mode.

The TV standby button will go out. The TV control function is now programmed into the remote control.

If you get a new TV, you'll need to reprogram your C Spire remote to operate the new TV.
