Master Power:

The Shaw Atlas remote can also be set up for master power, which allows the main power button to control the on/off power for all of your equipment at once, so you don't have to select and power on/off each device separately.

  2. Enter 9 – 9 – 5  on the keypad
  3. Press the Power button once
  4. Press the mode key for the first device you want in the power sequence (for example: CBL). Then, press Power once
  5. Repeat step 4 to add the other devices you would like to have included in the power sequence (for example: AUD then power, TV then power)
  6. Press the mode key, CBL, once
  7. Press and hold the SETUP button until the CBL button blinks twice

 

Locking Volume Controls to Audio Devices:

If you are using an audio system to control the volume while watching TV you can program your Shaw remote to lock the volume button to work only with your stereo. To enable volume lock:

  1. Press and hold the SETUP button until the mode key flashes twice in a row
  2. Enter the code 9 - 9 - 3
  3. Press the mode key on which your audio system was programmed (AUD, AUX, etc…). This will lock the volume to that device.
