How to Program Chromecast with Google TV Remote to a New TV

Is your Google TV remote not working after connecting the Chromecast to a new TV? It’s because you have not manually set up remote buttons for it since it’s an all-new device for the Chromecast. Today, you will learn the steps to program Google TV remote to a new TV.

Google launched the Chromecast with Google TV in 2020, which turns any TV into a smart TV. While this is a great device, no doubt, what will you do when your TV stops working? Obviously, you connect the Chromecast to another TV if you have a TV.

As soon as you do, you will notice that all the remote functions do not work as they do with the old TV (the power on/off, input, and volume controls do not work on the new tv), and in order to keep them in working condition, you need to repair the Google TV remote buttons for the new TV.

How to Set Up Google TV Remote for a New TV

As stated earlier, you need to set up the Google TV remote on your new TV, which you can do by setting up remote buttons under the Remote & Accessories section. Here are the steps through which you can do it:

When the Chromecast is turned on, it pairs with the remote automatically, but that is not always the case. If your Google TV remote is not paired with your Chromecast and if it’s not responding at all, you can easily pair it manually. Follow the below steps to do so:

Step 1: Firstly, ensure that the remote batteries are not dead.

Step 2: Press the button on the back of the Chromecast to put it in pairing mode.

Step 3: Now, if it doesn’t pair automatically, long-press the Back and Home buttons at once until you see the LED light at the bottom of the remote.

Step 4: Once you see the LED, press the Home button on the remote, and it should be paired.

Q. What Should I Do If the Remote Does Not Pair?

If the remote control still does not work after pairing or syncing it, try rebooting the device. To do so, unplug the power cable from Chromecast and wait for around 10-15 seconds before plugging it again.
