How To Program the AT&T UVerse Remote
Your U-Verse remote should be set up as soon as you buy it. But if this didn’t happen for some reason, or if it was reset during a power surge, there is no reason for concern. You can program a U-Verse remote on your own.
Once you finish reading this article, you will be able to program your U-Verse remote to control your TV, DVD player, or auxiliary device.
Different Types of the U-Verse Remote

- Turn on the device you want to program.
- Press and hold the appropriate mode button for that device (DVD, TV, AUX) and the Enter button at the same time.
- You will know you are in programming mode if the mode button starts to light up.
- Hold the Scan/FF button as long as the device you are programming does not shut down.
- Turn on the device again with the Power button.
- In case your device doesn’t turn on, hold the Rew/Scan button until it does.

- If everything is working, save the programming by tapping the Enter button.
