    when I press Tivo button and select button simultaneously the amber light that lights up on all my other Tivo remote to tell me I'm in learning mode never lights up. It lights up when I press buttons but just won't go into learning mode. Any advice?

    Are you sure it's a learning remote? only the silver edged Glo-remotes are learning.

    You have solved my problem! All my other remotes are silver edged but this new one that came with my Tivo Premiere has a black edge. You would think that they would not be cheap like that and send me a learning remote. Thanks for the help.

    Premieres normally come with standard remotes, the XL and Elite have the Glo (there were some glo promos with Premieres at times)

    Is there a way to program the tv on switch and volume buttons on a non-learning remote?

    Yes. To get the instructions and the codes go to Settings->Remote, CableCARD, & Devices->Remote Control Setup
