AT&T U-verse A30-RF1 Point Anywhere programming

Uverse A30-RF1 Point Anywhere remote control

The A30 Point Anywhere Remote Control controls the AT&T U-verse Receiver using RF (radio frequency) technology. This eliminates the need to point your remote at the AT&T U-verse Receiver in order to change channels or access any of the receiver's features.

All other devices are controlled with IR (infrared) signals. You can program it for up to 3 additional devices, such as a TV, DVD player or an audio device. It can also "learn" commands from existing remote controls.

Direct code entry

Step 1: Press and hold the "OK" and "MENU" keys simultaneously for 3 seconds until all four mode keys flash red twice and you hear 2 short beeps to confirm you are in programming mode.

Step 2: Using the numeric key pad on the remote, enter the first 5-digit code listed for your device. The associated mode key will blink red once for every digit pressed. Once all five digits are entered, the mode key associated with the device will flash red twice and you will hear 2 short beeps to confrm that a valid code was entered successfully.

Step 3: Test the remote to see if it controls your device as expected. If not, repeat this process using the next code listed for your brand. Use the volume buttons to verify that the remote is controlling your device's volume. If that does not work properly, go back to Step 1 and try again.

Step 4: Press the "AT&T" mode key for normal operation.

Repeat this process for all of your devices (TV, DVD, Home theater receiver, Sound bar, etc.). AUX is the default mode key for audio devices.

Learning Commands

To use this method, you must have the original remote control that came with the device you wish to program.

Step 1: Press the mode key ("TV", "DVD" or "AUX") for the device type you wish to set up. Note: Learning is not available with the "AT&T" mode key.

Step 2: Press and hold the "LEARN" key for 3 seconds until all four mode keys flash red twice and you hear 2 short beeps. The red LED indicator "SELECT KEY TO LEARN" lights up to confirm that you are in the learning mode.

Step 3: Place the A30-RF1 Point Anywhere Remote Control head-to-head with your original device remote (about 1" to 2" apart).

Step 4: Press the key on the A30-RF1 Point Anywhere Remote Control that you want to learn a command. The green LED indicator "READY TO LEARN" will flash rapidly when the remote is ready to accept the new command. Note: The learning function will time out after 10 seconds of inactivity.

Step 5: Next press the corresponding key from the device's original remote to send the command you want to learn. The "READY TO LEARN" LED will flash green twice and you will hear 2 short beeps to confirm it has "learned" and saved the desired command. Then the red LED indicator "SELECT KEY TO LEARN" will light up to indicate that the remote is ready to learn the next command.

Step 6: Repeat Step 4 and 5 as necessary to program all remaining functions. Once all of the keys are programmed as desired, press the "LEARN" key. The previously selected mode key will blink red twice and you will hear 2 beeps to indicate you have exited learning mode.

Notes:

  • When the green indicator "READY TO LEARN" is flashing but learning is inactive for 10 seconds, all four mode keys will flash red once for 2 seconds and you will hear a long beep. Then the remote will go back to the previous status and the red indicator "SELECT KEY TO LEARN" will light again to remind you to retry learning.
  • If the programming is interrupted or inactive for more than 10 seconds, all four mode keys will flash red once for 2 seconds and you will hear a long beep. The remote will then leave the learning mode and return to normal operation.
