Setting up the IR Blaster to control the set-top box (cable/satellite box) (IR Blaster compatible models only)

Peforming [Set-top box control setup] in [IR Blaster setup] allows you to operate a cable/satellite box from the menu displayed by pressing the ACTION MENU button on the remote control. If the remote control also has the EXT.BOX MENU button, you can press it to use the remote control for cable/satellite box operations such as displaying the cable/satellite box menu.

  1. Press the HOME button, then select [Settings] — [External inputs] — [IR Blaster setup] — [Set-top box control setup].
  2. Follow the on-screen instructions.


  • The IR Blaster can operate an AV receiver. To set up an AV receiver, press the HOME button, then select [Settings] — [External inputs] — [IR Blaster setup] — [AV receiver control setup].
  • If the AV receiver is a BRAVIA Sync-compatible device, an IR Blaster is not needed.


  • Some external devices may not respond to some items in the “Action Menu”.
  • If you press and hold a button on the remote control, the operation may not be transmitted. Instead, press the button repeatedly.
