Clear remote controls that are Bluetooth paired

Note: Bluetooth pairings are unique to each TDS TV+ Receiver.

  1. On the bottom of the receiver, press and hold the recessed 'Recovery' button until the screen shows 'Searching for Accessories.'
    • Do not press and hold the button for longer or the device will begin recovery mode.
    • If the ‘Fastboot’ menu appears, the button was held for too long. Unplug the device and begin from step 1.
  2. On your TDS TV+ remote, hold the ‘TiVo’ and ‘Back’ button simultaneously until the light at the top of the remote illuminates.
  3. Release the buttons on your remote. The remote light will flash slowly, then flash quickly five times. When finished the remote will be paired to the receiver.
