IR Device Setup

Control Center has several IR emitters along the front, sides and top of the case, which send signals to your devices. Most televisions and many source devices are controlled through IR signals. 

Setup

Control Center is pre-programmed with controls for a wide variety of devices, and will automatically detect devices which are connected to it. After connecting a new device, you will see a prompt to configure Control Center to work with your device:

If Control Center doesn't recognize this device, you'll need to teach Control Center the commands to control it. Control Center will walk you through this process while you use your device's original remote so that Control Center can learn the device specific commands:
