    To my knowledge if you have a receiver brand like Onkyo with dedicate on/off commands this doesn't work. Or more accurately will only work for one (on or off) but not both.

    It works fine with my Onkyo! I had to try a few codes for it to work. Functions just like my Glo remote.

    I have the Onkyo NR-808 receiver and the Samsung PN59D7000 plasma. Both have CEC (although Onkyo does not call it that). They have never worked in complete "Harmony" with each other: Logitech has always supplied that bridge with its remote and has worked well to control those devices, as well as my Roamio.

    But using the trick described in this thread, indeed, I am now able to turn the receiver on and off with the TV, and as long as the input stays the same and I can do everything with the TiVo remote, and I very much like that.

    Now, if only I could make where the input on the Onkyo is also switched, if necessary, when I am using the TiVo. Right now, only the Harmony remote can accomplish that. Does your Onkyo set-up allow this?

    I haven't tried that! I am sure you can do it with the Glo remote since it is able to learn.

    But can someone with the Glo confirm that you are using it with an Onkyo receiver, and that the Glo can be programed not only to control volume, turn the receiver on and off, but also to change the input on the Onkyo when the "On" button is pressed on the Glo?

    I don't think input switching is possible.

    Best bet - if you really want to use the TiVo remote - is to program the harmony so that it always returns the receiver to the Tivo input before shutting down. That way you can use your TiVo remote for TiVo, and the harmony for everything else.

    That said, it defeats the purpose of a universal remote so...

    Yes it does, but it also makes sense. I am going to add that command to the Harmony sequence.

    One compliant I have with the procedure described in this thread is that after programming the Roamio remote to control power for both the TV and the Receiver, I have to be sure to quickly press and release the "on" button of the Roamio. My experience is that if I don't do this, the TV turns on, but not the Onkyo receiver.

    Has anyone else noticed this?

    I have noticed that sometimes only one or the other turns on/off, but have always chalked it up to a line-of-sight problem. Getting them resynced can be a bit of a chore, but I usually get it done by pushing the button, waiting half a second, then covering the IR shield on the remote. I have always just assumed the IR commands were sent sequentially, so by doing so I was blocking the second one from getting transmitted.

    I haven't never noticed the speed with which I pushed (or released) the button to have any effect, but then again I guess I always push the button for about the same normal duration.

    I think the Roamio has a weaker IR blaster than the Premiere and Glo remotes. I never had this problem before, but now with the Roamio every once in a while I get the same results as what you're saying. If I aim correctly, I am usually ok. It also helps that the receiver is right below where the TV's IR sensor is. Just aim in that direction.

    Thank you. I had to try quite a few codes but I finally can turn my Onkyo receiver on and off with the Roamio remote.

    Finally! Thank you!

    The tivo instructions do NOT include this step. The step by step remote set up included in the tivo menus also do not include this step.

    I almost spent 50 bucks on a slide remote for the programmability to turn on and off my receiver.

    I did the tivo TV setup, then the receiver setup, then power and tivo button for the receiver again. I now can turn on and off the TV and receiver with the same power button and use the tivo volume and mute buttons to control the sound on the receiver.

    Tivo needs to update their instructions!

    Just saw this as well. :up::up::up:

    Although I've always had the tivo remote control the sound, my one daughter would always lose the sound bar remote (to turn it on and off) in the couch. Now I am happy! :D

    I have the same issue with my Premiere remote, my Slide Pro will only do the TV, so I have basically given up, and I do the AVR with it's OEM remote, and then grab the Slide Pro, turn the TV on and proceed from there. I would guess that the Slide Pro is equivalent to the Roamio remote (obviously minus the 'board), but I'm not positive that's the case.

    I programmed my slide pro input button to turn the receiver on/off using the learning feature.

    Even w learning, it won't power on and off my Panasonic projectors. Would love to be able to do that. Need to query support.

    Has anyone else come across this issue. New to TiVo only have my pro about a week. I was able to program remote to turn on my Yamaha Rx-v673 receiver.the problem is it turns on my main zone and zone2. I've tried different codes and it either tuns on both zones or nothing. Hope someone maybe found a work around for this.

    WOW! Thanks everyone! I tried the first code for my receiver that worked for volume and mute, but after typing it out, the light didn't blink at the top of the remote. I tried the second code for the receiver, and the light blinked, and now when I press it, both the TV and the Receiver turn off. Spectacular!
