The instructions to " point the remote away from the Tivo" doesn't make sense because the new remote works without being pointed at the Tivo. Therefore any input on the remote results in the V6 responding and you lose the help screen.
Please disregard my last post. I have succeeded by using the option to search all AV codes. It took a long time to find the Yamaha code but the Onkyo amp responded quite quickly. All is happiness and light in the fixerman household now as the Camp Commandant can now use the new V6 remote for both V6 and AV amp without her having to use use two remotes.
