Simplified remote

Illico TV first generation

The simplified remote control was designed to work with the illico New Generation Terminal.

This remote control offers only basic features, making it quick and easy to use. 

It does not replace the one that came with your Terminal and it is compatible with all New Generation Terminals.

For more advanced features, use the main remote control.

The EXIT button allows you to exit interactive screens.
Before programming your remote control
Your simplified remote control is programmed to automatically work with your illico Terminal.

To avoid any complications, we recommend that you program both your main remote and simplified remote to control the volume on your TV.

  • Simultaneously turn on your TV and Terminal by pressing POWER
  • Control TV volume
  • MUTETurn the sound on and off by pressing

Programming your remote control
Start by placing the batteries inside your simplified remote control.

There are two ways of programming your simplified remote:
Quick programming
  • Turn on your TV.
  • Press and hold the SET button until the red light blinks twice, then release.
  • Enter 9-9-1 (the red light will blink twice).
  • Press CH+ several times until the TV turns off.
  • Once the TV is off, press SET to confirm programming.
Programming by code
If you are unable to program your simplified remote using the codes listed in the User Guide, go to the supplier’s website: 
Even though the simplified remote is compatible with all Videotron Terminals, certain buttons (such as  Image1 and Image3 ) only work with illico New Generation Terminals:

  • Image3 allows you to add or remove a favourite channel
