In AV mode
issues the TV ‘channel down’ command.
e CR102 remains in the last selected Device Mode
so it is not necessary to press a Device Mode key before
every command key if all you are doing is playing or
skipping tracks on a CD, for example.
Navigation keys
e Navigation keys steer the cursor in Setup
menus or on-screen menus. ey also replicate
the navigation functions of original remotes
supplied with other home entertainment
devices in your system.
conrms a setting.
Volume control
By default, the CR102 is set up so that the volume
control buttons always control the volume of the
AVR500/AVR600/AV888, regardless of which Device
Mode the remote is currently set for. is is known as
volume ‘punch through’.
For example, if you are listening to a CD, you will
probably have the CR102 in
CD Device Mode to control
the CD player. You can use the volume controls on the
remote directly to adjust the volume of the AVR500/
AVR600/AV888 without rst having to press
to put
the remote into AMP Device Mode. e volume buttons
‘punch through’ the CD Device Mode on the remote to
the AMP Device Mode. Volume ‘punch through’ can be
disabled individually for any Device Mode if desired.
Useful information
A blue backlight comes on for ve seconds whenever
a key is pressed. is helps you use the handset in
subdued lighting conditions. It may be possible to hear a
quiet tone being emitted from the remote control when
the backlight is on. is is perfectly normal.
Power LED blinks
Short blinks indicate a valid key press.
Multiple short blinks convey information (such as a
device code) or signal the beginning and successful
completion of a programming sequence.
Long blinks indicate an invalid key press or entry.
e symbol ‘
’ is used in the manual to indicate a
power LED blink.
Timeouts and unassigned keys
Time out – Aer 10 seconds the CR102 exits the
programming state and returns to normal operation.
Stuck key timeout – Aer any key is pressed
continuously for 30 seconds, the CR102 stops sending
IR transmission to conserve battery life. e CR102
remains o until all keys are released.
Unassigned keys – the CR102 ignores any unassigned
key presses for a particular Device Mode and does not
transmit IR.
Low voltage indicator
When the batteries are running down, the IR transmit
indicator on the CD102 (the LED under the Power
button) ashes ve times whenever you press a button:
If this happens, please t four new AAA alkaline
batteries as soon as possible.
Device Mode / Source keys
As the CR102 can control your AVR500, AVR600 or
AV888 as well as a range of other equipment, many of
the buttons have more than one function depending on
the ‘device mode’ selected on the remote control.
e Device Mode keys (shown below) select the source
on the AVR500/AVR600/AV888. If one of these keys is
pressed briey, a command is transmitted to change the
source on the unit. Also the functionality of the remote
control changes to operate the selected source device. It’s
like having eight dierent remotes in your hand!

If you press and hold a Device Mode key for about four
seconds, you change the Device Mode of the CR102
without changing the signal source on the AVR500/
AVR600/AV888. is can also be done by pressing
followed by a Device Mode key (within two seconds).
ese two methods allow you to change which device
the CR102 controls without also changing the AVR500/
AVR600/AV888 source, allowing uninterrupted
Each Device Mode changes the behaviour of many
of the CR102 keys to control the source device
appropriately. For example:
