How To Setup The Universal Remote Control Inside The HTC One
Why This is Wirefly BUZZworthy
Nothing is more frustrating than wanting to watch your favorite show(s) and you cannot find the remote for the TV or the satellite/cable box. If you use the HTC One Android Smartphone for Sprint, AT&T, T-Mobile or Verizon Wireless you never have to worry about this problem again after following our setup guide.
If youâre not currently using the HTC One, I recommend you check your upgrade eligibility with Wireflyâs Upgrade Eligibility Checker and get one as soon as you can.
With the HTC One you have the ability to program the remote control feature to work with your TV, satellite or cable box, and your stereo receiver. In this systematic how to setup guide, I will explain how to set up the universal remote control feature on the HTC One.
What You Need to Know Before You Start
- It will take you 5-10 minutes per device you wish to program
- Ensure you have a good charge on your battery
- You need to be in-front of the devices you want to program
Let's Get Started
Start The Programing
When you're ready to start programing your TV, cable, satellite, or stereo receiver, go to the HTC Sense TV home screen and select the small remote control icon at the top of the display.
Proceed To Programing
You will now see a screen that explains the different devices that you can program with your HTC One. Press "Start" to continue programing.
Name Your Remote
Now you get to name your remote control. I would recommend naming it something that will remind you what room it is for if you plan on programing multiple devices. Maybe something like "Theater Room" or maybe "Where The Magic Happens".
Select Your Devices
This is where you select what devices you want to program with the HTC One. After you select the devices you wish to program, press âNextâ to move to the next page.
Pick Your Brand
This is where you select the brand of your TV, cable/satellite box, or stereo receiver from the list of brands. The list is very extensive and you should be able to find your manufacturer. If you are having trouble finding your brand in the list, use the search function at the top of the display. When you have selected your brand, hit the âNextâ button at the bottom.
Turn It Off
Make sure you start the next step with your TV turned off. When your TV is off you can proceed to the next step by hitting âNextâ.
Time To Be Surprised
There will now be a blinking âTurn on TVâ button in the middle of the display. After pressing that button, your TV should power on. There is a yes/no question at the bottom of the display that you have to answer to move to the next step. If your TV turned on and you select âyesâ, you have completed the setup of the remote. If your TV does not turn on and you select âNoâ, your HTC One will try the next code for programing your remote. It has worked the first time on every TV I have programed it to.
Enjoy and Amaze!
Now you are ready to lose the TV remote control for good. You now have a new way to entertain your company when they come over.
Having the ability to use your phone as a remote control might not be the reason that you buy the HTC One, but it is a great feature to take advantage of once you own the phone. Overall the universal remote control feature made it so I never had to put my phone down to pick up the remote control.
