I've searched online and these boards high and low and was unable to find a solution to my problem, so here we go.
I am trying to program my TiVo remote to control the volume and mute on our new Philips Soundbar (HTL2151). I originally tried all the Philips codes, none of which worked. I then tried the 'search for your code' mode (1999 and then channel up forever). This sort of worked. I'd reach a code that would mute the soundbar, but then wouldn't work any farther. The only thing this code would do was switch between input modes on my soundbar as opposed to contolling the volume etc.
So I decided it would be best to use learning mode. My remote is capable of learning, and I was able to teach it to turn on and off the TV with my TV remote.
I attempted multiple times to program the Tivo remote with the soundbar remote. The Tivo blinks 4 times to indicate success, however, then does not work at all. I've tried moving to a different room, turning off other electronics that may be interfering etc, but nothing works.
Any suggestions would be much welcomed! I am beyond frustrated and hoping that this isn't a lost cause!
