Universal Electronics (UEI) has announced the availability of the UEI QuickSet on-screen set-up application on DirecTV’s new suite of remote controls and HD set-top boxes.

With UEI QuickSet, DirecTV customers with H24 or HR24 HD receivers can integrate their new remote to work with the rest of their home entertainment devices aided by the onscreen set-up process. Traditionally, set-up required consumers to hunt through and decipher complicated user manuals and then go through the process of manually entering device codes into their universal remote control until each of their AV devices could be controlled.

UEI QuickSet also saves user-defined remote settings, which will enable DirecTV customers to save and then transfer the set-up configuration to a replacement remote, without the need to reprogram it.
