How can I connect SHIELD Android TV to the SHIELD Remote

To connect your remote for the first time:

  1. You should see an image of the SHIELD remote on your TV.

    • If not, open the SHIELD Accessories  app, located in the settings row of the Home screen.

  2. Press the Select button on the SHIELD remote.  The microphone symbol will flash, indicating that it is in connecting mode.

  3. The remote should connect after a few moments.

If the remote did not connect:

  1. If the microphone symbol is not flashing, hold down the back  and home  buttons at the same time until it flashes (3 seconds).

  2. If the microphone symbol does not flash after holding for 3 seconds, charge the remote and try again.

    • To charge the remote, connect it to one of the USB ports on the back of your SHIELD with the included USB cable or connect it to another USB power source.
