3. TELUS Remote
Pairing your TELUS Remote and your TELUS TV Digital Box
Your TELUS Remote is able to control your TELUS TV Digital Box using Infrared (IR) connectivity by default right out of the box.
For the most reliable connection, it is recommended to pair your TELUS Remote with your TELUS TV Digital Box using Bluetooth. Bluetooth connectivity has a longer working range than IR and does not require a direct line of sight between the remote and box. This gives you more freedom for where you place your TELUS TV Digital Box. Bluetooth connectivity is also required for Google Assistant connectivity.
During the first-time installation or following a factory reset of your TELUS TV Digital Box, you will be prompted to pair your TELUS remote with your TELUS TV Digital Box via Bluetooth. In most cases, your remote will pair automatically - you will see
Status: Remote control paired
once the TELUS Remote has been successfully paired. If you do not see this after 10-15 seconds, simply press the
buttons for 3 seconds to pair. If your remote becomes unpaired at any time, you can always reconnect by pressing the
buttons for 3 seconds. If your remote is unresponsive, check your batteries, or try un-pairing and re-pairing the remote by following these steps:
Press and hold the
buttons until the LED on your TELUS remote lights up solid green.
and wait for the LED to flash green twice (the remote has now been un-paired from your TELUS TV Digital Box).
Press any key and wait a few seconds (this will cause your remote to connect via IR mode).
The LED should now be flashing white with any key press
button on the remote while pointing the remote at your TELUS TV Digital Box. This will trigger the Bluetooth pairing mechanism between your TELUS remote and TELUS TV Digital Box.
If all of the above fails, please contact us for a replacement.
Controlling your TV with your TELUS Remote
During the first-time installation or following a factory reset of your TELUS TV Digital Box, you will be given the option of controlling your TV’s power and volume using the TELUS remote.
When prompted with the screen asking ‘Would you like to control your TV using your remote’ select
to proceed. Your TELUS TV Digital Box should automatically recognize the make of your TV, and you will be prompted to test the volume buttons. If they are working, select
to proceed with your setup. If they aren’t working, select
No, try again
If your TELUS TV Digital Box cannot identify your TV make, you can select it from a drop-down menu, and proceed with testing the volume buttons.
At any point after the first-time installation, you can choose to control your TV using your TELUS Remote. From the
screen, navigate to
Settings → Device settings → Remotes & Accessories → Program Remote with TV/Home Theatre
and follow the steps on screen.
Please note that controlling speakers and home theatres with the TELUS Remote is not currently supported.
Factory reset your TELUS remote:
To restore your TELUS Remote to original factory settings, simply press and hold the 1 and 9 buttons simultaneously on the remote number pad for 4 seconds.
When you see a solid green LED on the remote, press OK. The green LED will turn off and a white LED will start flashing.
Once the white LED starts flashing, the factory reset is complete. You can now set up the TELUS Remote as detailed in the
