How to Perform a Global Reset for my Remote Control
*All fields required unless otherwise indicated.
This procedure will reset all of the key functions on the remote, clearing the remote address, TV and A/V codes, as well as any programmable buttons.
To perform a global reset of your remote control:
- Cover the end of the TiVo remote control with your hand.
Press the TiVo button and the TV Power button simultaneously until the red light (amber light for Premiere Series DVRs) comes on.
Press Thumbs Down 3 times, followed by Enter. The red light (amber light for Premiere Series DVRs) on the remote should go out. If the light does not go out, repeat this step.
- Remove your hand from the end of the TiVo remote control.
- (TiVo Slide Pro and Slide remotes only) Pair the remote to its USB receiver. For instructions, go to Using the TiVo Slide Remote.
- You can now reprogram your remote. For information on programming the remote, go to How do I program my remote to control a TV/stereo?
NOTE: If you have a Premiere, Glo, or Slide remote, the light will be yellow.
NOTE: If the incorrect button is pressed, press Clear to start over.
