Pairing remote

My parent have an old TiVo box…with what looks like the newer remote as the old one broke. (it works, that’s not the problem) 

can’t figure out for the life of me how to pair the remote so they can adjust the volume/mute/power via the virgin remote however. 

the online guides tell me to press buttons on the box that don’t exist…

and to navigate menus that aren’t the same as what’s on the tv

Re: Pairing remote

Sounds like the box is not on the 360 software. It might be worth asking the account holder to communicate with the virgin tech teams as you may not have the right remote for the box's software and either need to have the box updated or an old version remote supplied

Re: Pairing remote

Check which box your parents have... use this page if you're not sure.

A V6 has a slightly smaller remote than the TiVo but looks the same.

I suspect that your parents might be trying to use a V6 remote with a TiVo, which "should" be ok over IR but not Bluetooth/RF
