TiVo remote

Hi everyone, I've set my TiVo remote to control my TV power, volume and source but it doesn't seem to control the TV channels...any suggestions?

Re: TiVo remote

Hi SteveB82, 

 

Thanks for your post and welcome to the forums. It's great having you on board with us in the Community. 

 

The TiVo® remote should be able to control your the channels via your TiVo® box. When you click on the channel up or down button what happens? 

 

Come back and let us know.

 

Thanks,

Re: TiVo remote

Hi Kath_F

Thanks for your reply. I don't think I wrote my question clearly, sorry.

I can change TiVo channels fine, and I have set my remote up I control the TV volume and power on off. When I change source to TV (so no longer watching TiVo) I can't change the TV channel with the TiVo remote so have to use the TV remote instead.

Re: TiVo remote

The TiVo remote is only designed to control your TV's power and volume. Any channel change function only works with the TiVo box itself.

So it's completely correct that your TiVo remote can't control your TV's own tuners and channels.
