Airtel Universal Remote Setup for Your Television

One of the main selling point of Airtel Digital TV DTH is the Universal remote. But, it may not work if not setup properly. The following guide will help you to set it up.

Airtel brings you the magical universal remote so that you can enjoy watching TV with just one remote. While our installation team will set up the remote to work with your brand of TV, the following steps gives you an overview of making the remote learn:

There are 5 basic functions which your new Airtel remote needs to learn about your TV
1. TV Power code
2. TV Mute code
3. AV code
4. TV VOL + code
5. TV VOL – code

Step 1: Bring Airtel digital TV remote in learning mode. Press and hold ‘’OK + Numeric 2” key for 3 seconds. The LED blinks twice to indicate that your Airtel remote is ready to learn.

Step 2 : Hold the source remote and Airtel remote in front of each other ( 3cm-6m apart).

Step 3: Press & release the key (First on Airtel remote and then on Source remote) which needs to be programmed in Airtel remote.
Example: Press and release the TV Power key on both remotes and release. The Airtel remote blinks twice to indicate a successful learning of ‘TV power code’.

Step 4: Now Press & release other keys ( on both remotes simultaneously) : Mute , AV, Vol +/-.

Step 5: Press “OK” on Airtel remote to store the new information about your TV. The LED will blink twice to indicate successful transfer to knowledge from your current TV remote to the new Airtel remote.

If the Airtel remote blinks four times, it means the learning failed. Go to Step 1 again

  1. Helping me.
    Just at 4th point, for “Press & release other keys ( on both remotes simultaneously)”, firstly click key on airtel remote (beam on) with then corresponding key on TV remote (2 bursts of beam). Not simultaneously really.

  2. Is the Airtel universal remove of HD DTH box capable of operate multiple device, for example TV and Sound system? I have a TV and a sound system. I would like to use the Airtel DTH remote to switch on both TV and sound bar simultaneously.

  3. Although the blog asks users to keep the 2 remotes separated by 3 to 6 cms away, I found it works much better when keeping the 2 remotes very close together (like 5 mm).

    Also, if you mess up the trainging… just quit the training mode by pressing ok multiple times. After that:
    #1 Press OK and red button together till light blinks
    #2 Enter number 980 (one by one)
    #3 Press OK

    All trainging cleared!!

  4. Power on key works for me but At point 3, you need to hold the remotes very close (almost touching). When I press airtel ON led lights up continuously. Led goes of only after ok key press

  5. My remote was not working. I want to my neighbour’s airtel remote to pair my tv remote what neighbour’s remote not working

  6. Great…It worked well…
    However it seems that volume key works for tv. Now it doesn’t work with set top box…
    Can we cancel that feature..

  7. Unable to pair airtel remote with MI TV remote.
