How to Sync a Remote


Controlling your entire home theater system using one remote offers a convenient option for lazy days on the couch. Most remotes require the entry of a code specific to each entertainment component for proper synchronization. Several remote control manufacturers provide an online tool for synchronizing the device with other electronics. On the other hand, some remotes require that you manually enter the corresponding codes. Syncing a remote control is a simple process that requires minimal preparation.
