    I have an Onkyo receiver also and I end up muting the sound instead of turning it off. I figure the Tivo stays on all the time so another device isnt going to add that much more to my electric bill. I have an 880 and hate it. I should sell it instead of letting it collect dust.

    If you want to do something a little more complicated or your receiver isn't supported - use one of these.

    It will take in a single IR input - such as TV power and it will send out multiple codes out with appropriate delays as needed.

    Didn't work with my TiVo HD remote and Onkyo receiver. :( It does power the AVR on but not off. Same result as the others have had.
    Looks like I'm just going to have to keep using the AVR remote or the mute button like SNJpage1 mentioned.

    I also have an Onkyo receiver, but it was new enough to support CEC over HDMI. So I configured it to automatically turn on when the (HDMI connected) TV turns on and turn off when the TV is turned off.

    My TiVo remote only sends the power command to the TV, then the reciever takes care of turning itself on and off. (also I can still use the receiver's remote to turn it on independantly from the TV if I just want to listen to music)

    If its the same, or similar, to my Series 3 remote, then there should be a way to program the remote to turn the TV and Onkyo on at the same time, and also off at the same time. Basically it sends a series of IR commands at the same time, and indeed it does work well.

    Here's a link that should help:

    It looks like my remote doesn't have a learning mode. I didn't get any response from the LED when holding down the TiVo and Select buttons. My remote is the TiVo HD remote. I don't know what the difference is between it and the Series 3 but it evidently doesn't accept learned codes.

    Regardless, thanks for the info. Hopefully it will help someone else.

    Like a number of you have mentioned my Yamaha receiver has separate power and standby buttons. This presented a problem, could learn the power on code but could not power off. Simple solution, I trained the power button to send tv power, then Yamaha power on, then Yamaha power off. Come to figure out when the receiver receives a power on sequence it ignores the power off until the receiver has fully powered up (2 -3 seconds). The receiver is also smart enough to ignore power on (when it's already on) but accept the following power off. Simple, but not intuitive solution.

    Thank you, Lord, for this old thread. I've been wanting to do this for a very long time. I actually bought a Harmony remote for this, but my wife refuses to use anything other than the TiVo remote. For the past few years, we've just been leaving the receiver on 24x7 and just turning the TiVO and TV off. I'm very happy that I can now turn my receiver off.

    TVs with ARC and CEC can turn on and off AVRs. TiVo can turn on and off the tv. You may want to look into that.
