How to Program Your Remote Control

Programming remotes

Universal remote controls can cut down on the amount of clutter in your living room, with their ability to control a number of devices without having to be made by the device manufacturer and the capability of switching between modes. Sometimes, however, they can be tricky to operate and have the potential to cause more of a headache than they solve. With some simple steps, you can be assured that you’ll have your remote working like a champ, letting you control your entire entertainment setup.

Make Sure You Have the Proper Batteries

Remotes all have one thing in common—they run on batteries. Make sure you have AA and AAA batteries on hand, as remotes most commonly use either of these types. Having the right batteries is essential to having a functioning remote.

Follow All Instructions

Odds are, your new remote came with a set of instructions. As these are distinct, from remote manufacturer to manufacturer and even between models, they can be very informative and save you a lot of time.

Enter the Correct Code

To properly connect a remote to a device, commonly it requires entering a code to pair the two together. Ensuring that you have the correct codes before beginning to sync your devices will make the process go smoothly. Codes are usually specific to makes and models of devices, and a list can most likely be found in the instruction manual that comes with your remote. Otherwise, finding them online is your best bet.

Television Technology – The Latest Advancements in How We Consume Entertainment

The way we watch TV has changed a lot in the last two decades. If you thought that things were finally settling down, however, you might be in for a big shock. As the way we consume entertainment content continues to evolve, these big changes will be making a significant impact in the next few years.

Skinny Bundles

It’s no surprise that once streaming services became available, people abandoned cable in droves. Why keep paying for a service that was the butt of the joke, “hundreds of channels, and nothing to watch”? It took a while, but cable companies are finally listening. They’re now offering what are known as “skinny bundles”—cable packages with a reduced channel lineup and (most importantly) a reduced price.

Smart Tech

In a few decades, the release of AI-powered home assistant devices like Amazon’s Alexa will be remembered as a watershed moment in technology. For now, we’ll just have to appreciate how these handy devices make using home entertainment systems more convenient than ever. Of the many things Alexa is capable of, one is integrating with home entertainment technology, allowing users a new level of control over their TVs and stereo systems—including voice controls.

Entertainment technologyVR and AR

Why watch a movie when you can be in a movie? While VR is still in its infancy, that hasn’t stopped entertainment executives from announcing they plan to use the burgeoning technology to create interactive shows and movies that let “viewers” take part in the action. Once these plans come to fruition, it will be a true sea change in how we experience media.
