IR Blaster won't let me control Tivo V6 box with Sonia Bravia remote

 I have just purchased a new Sony Bravia TV and connected the IR Blaster cable which in theory means I can operate my TIVO V6 box from the TV remote.

I went through the set up process to try and connect it but no luck.    In the set up it asks me to run a test by trying the Program Up button but this doesn't work, I press 'try again with different' code but still nothing.

Can anyone help me?    I am assuming my Tivo V6 has IR blaster compatibility?

Is there some setting I need to change on the Tivo and if so please could you give step by stap instructions on how to do this please

Thank you

V6 remotes run on RF not IR, so that the boxes can be hidden away in cupboards/cabinets etc & will still operate normally.

So I take it that means they V6 box can't be paired with my Sony Bravia remote via IR?

Just with a sound bar too I have to turn on/off TV, sound bar and V6 box every time I want to watch TV (3 different remotes)
