Does new tivo remote turn tv on and off?

Simple question i hope. One of the annoying things about the old style tivo is that it could turn my tv off but not on. Is the new remote any different in that respect?

As far as I know the codes in the V6 remote are the same as in the current TiVo one.

It works on/off and volume on my TV, although the TiVo remote paired instantly on the first try, whereas I had to manually go through almost the entire list of Samsung codes for the V6 before one worked. I'd nearly given up. So if it doesn't work first time, persevere in case another code works.

So you can confirm that you can turn on the tv with just the new tivo remote? No need to use the tv remote at all?

Yes. The TV remote only comes out when watching other than Virgin, i.e. DVD or Amazon. Have you tried all the codes for your TV make on the TiVo remote?

Re: Does new tivo remote turn tv on and off?

Forgive me for asking a daft question. I've only just this minute realised that the tivo remote switches on my tv as well as switches it off. For about 6months i've been using the tv remote to turn the tv. Well i've learnt something new today. Thanks

...that's exactly what i had to do with my Samsung TV as well - the remote wouldn't pair when going through the 'up/down' automatic process! I had to manually input each and every code before the remote finally turned the tv off!!!! Smiley Surprised

Hold the TiVo 'Power' button down for up to 5 seconds, this should turn the TV off
