Television cable providers that feature set-top boxes or DVRs will also feature their own remotes to use with those boxes. To minimize the amount of remotes you have to keep track of, you can program these cable remotes to work with your TV as well, allowing you to store away the control that originally came with the television set. To program a Bright House Cable remote to work with your Vizio TV just follow a few quick steps, no matter what model Vizio TV you have.
Things You'll Need
- Bright House-provided remote
- Vizio television powered on
Power on the TV set if you haven't already.
Pointing the remote toward the TV press the "TV" button located along the top row. When you do this, the button will blink once.
Press and hold the "Setup" button located at the top-left of the remote. Continue holding the button until the "TV" button blinks twice. When this happens you can release the "Setup" button.
Use the channel number buttons to enter the following code: 1758.
Point the remote at the TV and hit the "Power" button. The TV should turn off, signifying that the remote is now active for controlling your Vizio set. If you entered the code incorrectly you can repeat the entire setup process from the beginning to try again.
Tips & Warnings
- Some older or less common Vizio models may not respond after entering the above code. For a select few models one of the following backup codes may be necessary instead, although it is unlikely this should be required. If you cannot program the remote using 1758, repeat the process using one of the following instead: 0846, 0885, 1756 or 0178.
