AirTV Remote Guide

AirTV Player comes with an easy-to-use, voice-capable remote that gives you intuitive control of your TV. Even better, your remote talks to AirTV Player using Bluetooth, so you don't need to point your remote directly at your TV to make it work.

This guide describes what each of the remote buttons do and includes pairing instructions.

Pairing Your AirTV Remote

In order to use your AirTV remote with AirTV Player, the two must be paired. Pairing is initially done in the first step of AirTV setup by pressing the OK button. If at any other point you need to re-pair your remote or pair another remote, just follow these simple steps:

  1. On your AirTV Player, press and hold the Remote button for 3 seconds.
