You can program a third-party remote—such as your cable/satellite box remote—to control the soundbar. Refer to your third-party remote owner’s guide or website for instructions. The remote code used to configure a non-Bose remote to operate the soundbar is determined by the third-party and is not known to Bose.
Once programmed, the third-party remote controls basic soundbar functions, such as power on/off and volume.
Note: Not all third-party remotes are compatible with the soundbar. The remote must support IR (infrared) signals in order to control the soundbar.
