Remember to charge your remote by using the attached USB charger that plugs into your box or any USB charger. Also, be sure to turn your remote OFF when it is not in use to save battery life.

To stop using the Mouse feature and use the directional pad, press the Mouse On/Off (#15) button.

X5 Remote Control Trouble Shooting

1. Make sure the remote control is fully charged. You can plug the provided USB cable into a USB port on the X5 or plug the USB end into any cell phone charger to charge the remote. A red light will appear when the unit is charging. The red light will disappear when the remote is fully charged.

2. Make sure the USB dongle that was included is plugged into one of the USB ports on the left side of the X5 unit.

3. Turn on the X5.

4. Turn the remote on using the toggle switch on the left side of the remote. Make sure the toggle switch is in the on position. You should see a blue light at the top of the remote control.

5. Move the remote around and you will see the cursor move with the movement of the remote control.

If this procedure did not work and no buttons are working in cluding the direction pad buttons, please follow the instructions below.

Pairing the X5 Remote

Turn the remote switch to off, now push the Esc key and while holding it down turn the remote to on. The blue light should start to flash rapidly and you can let go of the escape key and the remote should pair itself. Make sure the X5 is on and you are close to it when you follow these instructions.

Please refer to the X5 button guide above to learn what all of the buttons do.
