Some satellite receivers are ultra high frequency (UHF)-capable, which allows them to receive remote commands when the remote does not have a direct line of sight to the receiver. If two UHF-enabled receivers are in close distance to each other, the remotes may control the incorrect receiver; however, you can set a custom remote address to prevent this. See My receiver changes channels itself for more information.
Both your satellite receiver and Shaw Direct remote need to be changed to a new address in order to keep them tied together.
To set a new address using your IRC 600 or URC 600 remote:
- Press "MENU" on your remote, select "Preferences", expand "Hardware Settings", then scroll down to "Remote Control Address".
- Select a code from the below list.
- Press and hold "SAT" on your remote until the mode buttons flash (they will stop when SAT is released).
- Enter the same three-digit code on the remote as you selected on your receiver.
- The "SAT" button should flash twice.
Programming your TV and other devices - Scanning method
To have your Shaw Direct remote control other devices, such as your TV, follow these steps:
- Ensure the device you want to program the remote for is powered on.
- Press and hold the device key ("TV" or "AUX") until the mode buttons flash at least three times.
- Press "9, 9, 1". The device key should blink twice.
- Press "CH+" once per second until the device turns off. If you pass the correct code, press CH- to scan backwards.
- Press the device key ("TV" or "AUX") to lock in the code. The device key should blink twice.
- Press "POWER" to verify the device turns on/off.
- Test "VOL+/-" and "POWER" on/off to ensure you do not have a partial code.
