Setting the Operational Mode

MG-REM1 functions in Magellan mode or Omnia mode. For wireless receivers that
use the Magellan protocol, the remote control must be in Magellan mode. For
wireless receivers that use the Omnia protocol, the remote control must be in
Omnia mode. By default, the remote control is in Magellan mode.

To set the operational mode, press and hold the



simultaneously for 5 seconds. If the remote control LED flashes once, it is in
Magellan mode. If the LED flashes twice, it is in Omnia mode.

LED Functionality

MG-REM1 will perform different flashing sequences of its LED during normal
operation that will inform the user whether the remote control is in Magellan or
Omnia mode. When the remote control is in Magellan mode the LED will flash
rapidly, and when the remote control is in Omnia mode, the LED will stay

Enrolling Remote Controls in Omnia Mode

In order to enroll a remote control that is in Omnia mode, the user must press any
button (until the LED lights up each time) twice.

How to Replace the Battery

1. Remove the two screws from the back of the remote control and remove the

back cover.

2. Slide a teflon screwdriver, or any plastic device, under the battery to remove it

from the battery compartment (see Figure 1). Avoid using metal as it may cause
a short in the board.

3. Insert the new battery as shown in Figure 2. The negative side of the battery is

inserted face down. Insert the battery diagonally until it rests under the metal
prongs. Push the battery down and snap into place.

4. Set the back cover in place, and fasten it with the two screws.

Danger of explosion exists if the lithium battery is incorrectly
replaced. Replace only with the same or equivalent type
recommended by the manufacturer. Dispose of used batteries
according to the manufacturer's instructions. Damage to the metal
prongs may occur if the battery is not inserted correctly.
