I purchased the unit from a private party and the original owners manual was not available. Having the ability to download it was extremely helpful and clarified operating the equipment immensely. This is a complicated unit and without the manual I would not have been able to maximize it's potential. Thank you.
Being a user of older radios of many kinds, preferring them over more modern rigs, this manual was invaluable in the programming of my two. I now know for certain what the assorted buttons functions are, and am very grateful to have found this excellent site. Many thanks for your assistance, Tony.
Clear and easy to read. All details as expected. Price acceptable , and quick delivery.
Quick response and exactly what I was looking for and at a great fair price!
5 star quality on these downloadable manuals. Easy to read and all the information is there. A must when doing a custom install or needing to service your precious old school electronics.

Notes on adjusting the volume
When connecting to the LINE OUT jack
N Before you begin
â¢ This is a remote control unit with built-in speaker to enhance your enjoyment of television sound. It is convenient to use if it is difficult to hear the television sound when there is other surrounding noise or human voices present. â¢ The television sound can be easily heard through the high-fidelity, compact speaker. Clearer, fuller sound can also be heard when listening to the television sound. â¢ The volume control for the speaker enables you to listen to the sound at the most appropriate volume. â¢ Because the speaker system uses infrared-ray communication, it provides great portability, allowing you to carry it around the room. The sound can be enjoyed anywhere within the range the infrared rays can reach, such as on top of a table or next to a sofa. â¢ A microphone is included, which can pick up sound directly from the television speakers. Transmitter installation can be performed easily, without troublesome cord connections. The transmitter also operates with a television not equipped with an audio output terminal. â¢ The unit is also equipped with a three-hour timer OFF function. Even if you forget to turn off the power of the speakers, the power turns off automatically after three hours to prevent excessive power consumption.
While away from the television, you can hear the clear sound near at hand.
â¢ When the transmitter is connected to a headphones jack, use the volume control on this Commander to adjust the volume, while keeping the volume of the TV at an appropriate level. â¢ Sound from the microphone will be shut off automatically if a connection cord is connected to the television LINE OUT jack or headphones jack of a TV. â¢ The sound sent from the transmitter is monaural. If the input signal is stereo, it is converted to a monaural signal inside the transmitter. B Using the supplied microphone 1 Remove the microphone from the underside of the transmitter.
Setting the code

2 Press the POWER button while holding the SLEEP button pressed. 3 Press the button for the component on the Commander that you want to set up (TV or CABLE). 4 Press and release the CHANNEL + button. Then press and release the POWER button. 5 Repeat step 4 until the correct code number is found. Each time you press the CHANNEL + button and then the POWER button, a new code number will be transmitted. Keep trying until your component operates by receiving the transmitted signal from the Commander (e.g., the power turns off, the CHANNEL + function works, etc.). Be patient as you do this; it may take 60 or 70 tries until the correct code number is located. 6 When the correct code is found, press the ENT button. 7 Check that the Commander is operating the other functions of your component by pressing the corresponding buttons on the Commander. If they seem to be working properly, youâre done setting up the Commander. If the component does not operate properly, repeat steps 1 to 6 and search for another code. If you still cannot get the Commander to work properly, see âTroubleshooting.â
â¢ Use the VOL control on the Commander to adjust the speaker volume. â¢ If noise increases when the Commander goes outside the range where the infrared rays reach or when the infrared rays are obstructed, the mute function operates automatically, and the sound from the speaker cannot be heard. The mute function is canceled automatically when the Commander moves closer to the transmitter or there is no obstruction to the infrared rays.

5 Press the ENT button.
3 Attach the microphone to the television speaker. Adjust the volume of the TV.
You can store your earphone in the battery compartment on the bottom of the Commander when not in use.
6 Aim the Commander to your component and check if you can operate it using the Commander.
Approx. 3 m (118 1/8 in.) Notes â¢ This system utilizes infrared rays for communication, so noise (hissing) from the speaker can increase as the Commander goes farther away from the transmitter, even within the range illustrated above. The sound will also be cut off and noise will be generated if the infrared rays are blocked. These are characteristics of infrared-ray communication and do not indicate an equipment malfunciton. â¢ Do not place your hand in front of the infrared receptor. â¢ Place the Commander so the infrared receptor of the Commander faces the transmitter. If the Commander is used in a position within the range illustrated above, the sound can be heard from the speaker of the Commander. â¢ The sound you hear varies according to the position of the Commander and the transmitter. Try finding a position that yields the best sound. â¢ Even if there are irregularities in the clarity of the infrared emitter of the transmitter, this will not influence the range and other functions of the infrared rays.
If you press a wrong button in step 4
Press the POWER button while holding the SLEEP button pressed and then return to step 3.
If you cannot operate your component
â¢ First try repeating these setup procedures using another code listed for your component (see the tables in âComponent code numbersâ). â¢ If after trying all the codes listed for your component you still cannot get the Commander to work properly, try the search method described in âSetting by searching for the correct code.â
