TiVo remote and Sony TV

My TiVo remote won't control the sound on my Sony Bravia 49XD8077/8099. I've gone through the recommended procedure for re-programming the remote, but the list of Sony codes given seems to date from 2012 and none of them work. Is there, or will there be and when, a code that I can use to program the TiVo remote so that I don't have to use the Sony TV control for Volume and mute?

Re: TiVo remote and Sony TV

Thanks, I found a different set of instructions that mentioned having to wait between Channel Up presses and this has done the trick.

Re: TiVo remote and Sony TV

Hi Leedscot,I have the same problem with a Sharp smart TV, the problem is Tivo Remote uses Infrared (IR) to communicate and the new smart TVs from 2015 use Radio frequency (RF) to communicate..so basically your Tivo remote will never control the volume on your TV

Re: TiVo remote and Sony TV

Someone else posted instructions that should work, here:

http://community.virginmedia.com/t5/Help/Programming-your-TiVo-remote-control/td-p/3166540

However, I would add that in step 4, you should PAUSE for a couple of seconds between each press of "Channel Up" to give the system a chance to react, otherwise if you go too quickly you won't get the result you want.

Hope this works, but it's now a while since I did this, and I'm not sure I'm remembering correctly – but I don't want to go through the process again!

Problem solved

I returned the Sony TV and bought a Panasonic

Within 10 minutes of getting it out of the box everything was up and running
