    Stupidly, that link actually doesn't explain how to have the remote control the AV power. I don't understand why TiVo still has this info not publicized.

    To make your remote control the AV power, hold down the tivo+power buttons for a few seconds until the light comes on, then enter in the AV code again (the same one you used to let you control AV mute and volume). That's it!

    Note that, if you have a choice of many codes, a code that works for mute and volume may not work for power - you may have to keep trying other codes for your brand receiver to find one that works for all three.

    Hermosa...
    This is The direct link to the remote customization procedures. You still need to expand the specific sections.

    Unless I am going blind, nothing on that page, even after expanding all the sections, explains how to hold tivo+power down in order to get the remote to control the AV power.

    So by following the above instructions you are able to power on both the TV and Receiver with one button click (TV PWR) just like you can program the Glo remote? Or does this just control the power for the Receiver?

    Another option if your receiver supports it is HDMI-CEC. I have my receiver in a closet turn on and off with the TV.

    They're right, you keep posting the link, but the link and the Tivo help screens never mention RECEIVER power, ever, so if it works, it's an easter egg at this point.

    I just got a Zvox soundbar (sound box really). Never owned one before but the new TV I have is very low profile on the bottom sitting on the stand (about 3 inches) so my Samsung Soundbar was blocking a bit of the bottom of TV when watching. Also, with soundbars I found the TiVo remote is not very good as far as codes.

    The new thing I got is a box made of wood so the 60" TV sits on top of it. The great thing is that the remote (even the TiVo) remote "learns" the controls of the Zvox by pointing at the Zvox and doing a couple button pushes. It really was the easiest thing I've done with regards to "learning remote"

    I don't have my Roamio yet so I can't test this out. I just don't understand how entering in the AV codes won't overwrite the TV codes when you enter it in!?!?

    I know this is what one would expect and it isn't documented clearly, but it does work. I've used the Tivo remote to power on both TV and AV receiver for every Tivo since my original Philips series 1. The Roamio remote behaves the same - one button to power on/off both devices.

    Ok, I have to report some findings. I have a TiVo Premiere base remote (non-glo) and I my two tuner Premiere. I first set the TV code using the TiVo guy + the power button. Then I set the receiver code with the TiVo guy + the mute button. I went back and set that same code with Tivo guy + power button and it worked. I am guessing that it doesn't overwrite the TV code because it knows the receiver code is not a TV code. So it stores both! Note that I had to try a few codes for my Onkyo receiver as some of them I guess didn't have the power button control. That being said I did not have to redo the TV code every time I tried the receiver code. Hopefully this is the same deal with the Roamio remote!

    I hope this helps!

    Still don't get how this works... Do you hit the POWER BUTTON and BOTH DEVICES (TV & Reciever) turn on?????!?!?!?!?!

    Yes, it sends a signal to your TV and your Receiver to turn them both on and off. You have to perform the extra step of assigning the receiver to the power button (not just the mute button). It now performs as I had originally programmed my Glo remote.

    Engadget says CEC is not supported with Roamios.

    I hope Engadget is wrong on that point. If it is working with your TiVo Roamio, it ought to work with mine!!

    My TV and my receiver support HDMI-CEC. The Roamio or anything else plugged into the receiver does not have to also support it for the functionality I described.
