Use a Hudl Bluetooth Remote with a Computer

Wired Hudl remotes, Cowboy remotes and DSV remotes are not currently compatible.

Tips for Pairing the Remote

  • The four digit code on the back of your remote is your remote’s unique Hudl ID.
  • When you see a blinking red light after a button is pressed, the remote is ready to be paired.
  • If there is not a blinking red light on the remote, the remote is already paired with another device. Find the connected device and disconnect before connecting to a new device.
  • A yellow light blinking in the top right corner of the remote indicates a low battery. The faster the yellow light blinks, the lower the battery.
  • Your computer will call the Hudl Bluetooth Remote a Bluetooth Keyboard.
