Control Sony soundbar with Tivo remote

Hi, not sure if anyone's found a way to do this or if it's plain impossible but I have a Sony HT-CT180 soundbar (optical only so no HDMI ARC control), that I'd like to program the Tivo remote to control. Just the volume. The Sony codes provided in the remote programming guide are only for TVs, but the TV volume is disabled as the sound bar is in charge of the noise. Has anyone managed to program the remote with a sound-bar code?

 

Thanks, flathunt.

Re: Control Sony soundbar with Tivo remote

Brilliant, thank you, I'll try the AV code search tonight.

 

Incidentally, I notice the link to the direct code numbers is the same as the one on the TV programming page, i.e. these are TV codes, not AV ones.

Ah thanks for the spot. The AV list is here http://www.virginmedia.com/tivo/audio_remote_code_list.pdf and I'll get that article flagged to be changed.

Re: Control Sony soundbar with Tivo remote

This link now goes to a 404 page. Do you have the correct link please?

I've tried the AV codes for my Sony Soundbar and none of them appear to work.
