The green button on the Tivo remote only turns on and off the TV, along with VOL -/+ and mute.
CH -/+ will only change channels on the Tivo.
The tivo remote needs to be programmed for it to operate any specific TV following the instructions and the proper codes on the Tivo screen when you navigate to the proper Tivo menu.
Messages & Settings / Settings / Remote, CableCard & Devices / Remote Control / Part 1: TV Power, colume and mute / find your TV brand
It can also operate 2 Tivos with the 1-2 switch by setting remote addresses for each Tivo as follows.
To set the remote address for each Tivo:
Cover the infrared sensor on the Tivo you are not setting its remote address.
Navigate the menu on the other Tivo to the SYSTEM INFORMATION screen.
Slide the switch to 1.
Press TIVO and PAUSE at the same time until the light is on.
Choose a number 1-9 for its remote address. (I'll choose 1 for this example) and press that number.
Press Left arrow and you should be out of the SYSTEM INFORMATION screen.
Go back in to SYSTEM INFORMATION and you should see:
REMOTE ADDRESS: 1
Repeat for other Tivo covering the previous Tivo's sensor but with the switch set to 2.
(I'll choose 2 for this example.)
When the above is done, it should say
REMOTE ADDRESS: 2
Uncover the sensors.
You are now done and the remote is set to control the first Tivo on switch set to 1 and the second Tivo when the switch is set to 2.
