The MagniFi MAX works best with the included remote, however, you can also teach it to respond to your favorite TV or cable IR remote by following these steps:
1 - Enter "Learn Mode" by pressing and holding the "Source" button on the sound bar until you hear a tone and the lights on the front of the sound bar pulse up and down.
2 - Press and release the button on the MagniFi MAX remote that you want to learn (ex: Volume Up).
3 - Press and release the corresponding button on YOUR remote repeatedly until you hear a two note ascending tone. NOTE: Make sure you wait at least 1 second between button presses!
4 - Repeat steps 2 and 3 to learn Volume Down, Mute, and Power buttons from your remote.
5 - Exit "Learn Mode" by pressing and holding the "Source" button on the sound bar again until you hear a tone and the lights on the front of the sound bar stop pulsing.
6 - Verify that your remote can control the buttons you programmed (ex: Volume up) on the MagniFi MAX.
Connecting the bar to the TV using the HDMI (ARC) will allow the TV remote to control the bar. No programming is required.
It wil lnot be able to adjust the subwoofer and rear surround speaker volume levels. This adjustment requires the use of the supplied Polk Audio remote control.
