We have two TVGuardian remotes (TVG logo OR SafeTV logo) that were released with their respective models. Both remotes are interchangeable and will work with either unit, however, there will be a slight mapping change on the remotes when using with the opposite unit.
- First, look at the back of your TVGuardian where you plug the power cord in. Below should be a label that says either ‘6 VDC’ or ’12 VDC’
- 6 VDC = TVGuardian 501HD-A/B
- 12 VDC = TVGuardian 501HD-C
- Next, the remote will either have the ‘TVGuardian’ logo or the ‘SafeTV’ logo.
- 12 VDC = TVGuardian Logo Remote
- 6 VDC = SafeTV Logo Remote
- Last, follow the table below to find which buttons are mapped to where, specific to your remote and your unit.
TVGuardian Remote Mapping
|501HD-B (6V) UNIT | SafeTV Remote||501HD-C (12V) UNIT | TVG Logo Remote|
|MNU <Left Arrow>||TVG|
|OPT <Down Arrow>||OPT|
|TVG <Up Arrow>||INP|
|SEL <Center Button>||MNU (menu)|
|INP <Right Arrow>||SEL|
Example: Your unit is a 501HD-C (12V) (right side/column) and your remote is a SafeTV remote (left side/column). To open the Menu on your TVGuardian 501HD-C (12V), start on the right side/column and find MNU (menu) then check what button you will press on the SafeTV remote on the left side/column, which will be SEL <Center Button>.
Example 2: Your unit is a 501HD-B (6V) (left side/column) and your remote is a SafeTV remote (left side/column). To open the Menu on your TVGuardian 501HD-B (6V), start on the left side/column and find the MNU <Left Arrow> option then press the corresponding button, which would be the Left Arrow on your remote.
