TiVo remote cannot get into program mode

I have 2 TiVo boxes. I have managed to program both to control my TV. However, just changed 1 TV and tried to reprogram the remote. Watched videos and instructions and it say to held down CLEAR and TV at same time. I cannot get the 2 green led flashes . How long do the keys need to be pressed for. I've tried up to 60 seconds but nothing yet.

Mine just flashes a single red flash after 5 or 6 seconds.   

Tried a few times fingers getting tired.now.

Try holding down clear first then TV. Roughly the same time but clear first.

It should only take 3 seconds.
