Programming the remote for the Multichoice HD5S decoder

19 Mar 2018

Just a short note to alert those of our users who like to maximise the functions they can get out of their DSTV System:  the new remote that comes with the HD 5S decoder ( called a B6 remote) allows one to do some really nice programming functions such as turning on your TV, your decoder and your surround-sound system all with the press of a single button. ( So does the latest remote for the Explora2, known as an A7 remote). Multichoice have supplied very detailed instructions in the manuals for these remotes, obtainable on the dstv.com site under “support”.
There are a lot of manuals listed there, and at the time of this post, none referring to the B6 remote.
One can obtain the instructions for the B6 remote in the  manual for the A6, shown below. The “A6 advanced Options” manual is the one you want.

I am not going to attempt an explanation for you as the manuals are very detailed,
Be patient and you will find you can do some interesting things which will enhance your viewing pleasure a great deal!
