To program an LG remote, power on the remote to turn on the television, select the mode button to choose the device to program, and simultaneously select the power and mute button on the remote. The LG remote will automatically work with a television but needs to be programmed to work with additional devices, such as a DVD system.

  1. Power up the device

    Press the power button on the device that needs to be programmed, such as a satellite or DVD system. Check the LG remote to ensure it is loaded with fresh batteries that are installed correctly before using.

  2. Scroll through the modes

    Select the mode button on the LG remote to scroll through the devices to find the one desired to program the remote to, such as the cable or satellite box or video player. While pressing the mode button, stop scrolling once the correct device appears on the television screen.

  3. Program the remote

    Press the mute and power button simultaneously to sync the remote to the media device once the desired device appears on the screen. Select the channel up button on the remote until the media device powers off to allow the media device to further sync to the remote.
