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 any 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 this 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.
  • If you can­not get your remote to pair with your com­put­er or if the remote doesn’t show up as an option to pair, hold the Tag and Full but­tons for three sec­onds to man­u­al­ly unpair the remote.
