Why can't I get the PS4 media remote to connect to my TV/AMP/Cable box using the codes in the manual?

The PS4 Media Remote is designed to be used as a universal remote.  However, some models of TVs/AMPs/and even cable boxes may not be compatible with the remote, OR may connect but have limited functionality.

If you are unable to get the remote to connect to your device using the Manufacturer's Code list in the manual, try turning your device OFF and then re-entering the codes from the manual until you are able to operate your device.  If the codes are not working, try the Auto Search Mode with your device on, and then again with your device off.  If none of those options work then there may be a compatibility issue with your device and the remote.

If you are unable to locate your brand of device in the Manufacturer's Code list, follow the steps in the manual to perform Auto Search Mode with your device on.  If that does not work, try again with your device off.  If neither of those options work, then your device is not compatible with the remote.
