My setup includes a TV and a Harman Kardon receiver. I want to use the remote to:
- Turn the TV on and off
- Turn the receiver on and off
- Control the volume of the receiver
Unfortunately, the receiver's remote has separate On and Off buttons. I am able to program the TiVo remote to Turn the TV On/Off and the receiver On (or Off, but not both).
I want to push the power button on the remote and have both the TV and the receiver turn on. Then push the power button again and have both the TV and the receiver turn off.
Are there any practical solutions to this? I've tried programming the Tivo power button on the remote to perform (1) TV Power, (2) Receiver On, then (3) Receiver Off in the hopes that the receiver wouldn't pick up the Off signal as it is starting up. However, the receiver is too quick and this did not work.
Any suggestions? Any way to create a macro on the TiVo remote? E.g., alternate the power button between On and Off commands for the receiver?
