    Ok, I'd like the slide remote to operate both the Sony TV sound and my Sony soundbar power and volume... but sometimes only one OR the other. I don't use the soundbar all the time. Sometimes I want to use the TV speakers and sometimes I want to use the soundbar.
    Can the slide buttons learned be different for the TV/vol. and the soundbar power/volume? Right now I just control the Sony TV with the slide.
    Is it possible to have this option?

    I've had a lot of success controlling my samsung sound bar with my samsung tv using the optical connector. It powers on with the tv and off with the tv.. the tv controls the volume and mute.. so I only had to program the tivo remote for the tv

    Yes, This works great. To set up with TiVo remote, use code 0091. Hold Tivo and Mute buttons til light is solid. Enter 0091, light should flash four times. Try it. I got ONE knowledgeable support guy to give me this info. Write it down.

    THEY TOLD ME THAT TOO, after I had one knowledgeable Tivo support guy make it work. Try different codes for that brand of TV, instead of AV equipment. My Insignia took code 0091. I have five remotes from old ones to newest ones and a glo remote that work the sound bar. don't take no for an answer. get a better helper.

    I have both a Boston Acoustic and a Harmon Kardon sound bar and my regular Roamio and Mini remotes work fine with them. The difference with my sound bars is that they learn from the remote. Neither of them came with a remote and you have to program them to listen to whatever remote you are using. In my case I will program the Tivo remote to use the first Harmon Kardon or Boston Acoustic code in Tivo's list and then I'll have the sound bar sync with the remote. I originally thought that no remote with the sound bars was odd, but now I appreciate the ease of using any remote with them!
