Shortcut to put Roamio Pro into Standby Mode

I would like to put my Roamio Pro into "Standby Mode" when I shut my entertainment system down for the night.

I've tried programming my Harmony 900 several times to do the appropriate selections, but for some reason I always end up at the wrong screen.

I've done some searching and I do not see that there are any shortcuts in the Tivo remote to go directly to standby mode.

Hoping someone else has gone down this path and has been succesful!

In the mean time I'll keep tweaking my "code" and see if I can come up with a sequence that works....

(I'm a recently retired Systems Programmer and this is driving me NUTZ that I can't get it to do exactly what I want! -lol-)

Thanks for any suggestions!

I would also like a shorter/easier method for putting my Roamio into standby. It currently takes far more button pushes than it should (and more than my old DirecTiVo required).

I suspect that your program isn't working consistently might be because the TiVo Central menus are somewhat 'dynamic.' Things like messages, advertisements, and showcases seem to sometimes come and go from the menu, therefore the exact sequence of button pushes required to navigate to 'standby' isn't always the same.

Harmony uses the discrete standby code, not a sequence of up/down/select keys. The standby code does not work from some screens, such as the CableCARD section.

It's a crap-shoot with Harmony depending upon which Tivo model you select. Several years ago I wrote them and told them I had "learned" Tivo Standby codes for Tivos with Remote Codes of 1-3 and suggested they add "Standby" to all their device profiles based upon my codes. They told me it was a "great idea" and they would do it, but I keep seeing these questions posed, so clearly they were just trying to shut me up....

Here is a list of pronto hex code for standby for all 10 TiVo remote codes...

Putting a TiVo DVR into Standby mode does the following:

Stops sending video and audio from the DVR to the TV.
Causes the lights on the front of the unit to go out.
Re-enables Parental Controls if they have been temporarily disabled.
Programs that are being recorded or are scheduled to record will still be recorded. If a program is being recorded, the red light will turn on.

If you used an RF coaxial cable to connect a program source to the DVR and to connect the DVR to the TV, Standby mode provides RF pass through. This means you can watch channels on your RF program source while the DVR is in Standby mode.

Your DVR will continue making TiVo service connections while in Standby mode.

TiVos haven't had an RF output since the S2.

But another benefit standby provides is it prevents emergency alerts from interrupting recordings.

Wow that is a whole different animal (website) than what I am use to programming my 900 with, A GUI interface is what I have been using for 3 years.

I'll have to study this a bit and figure it out!

Thanks...

You don't need to use the hex codes, btw. I've used TiVos with Harmony remotes for years and have always used the built-in standby code. Someone earlier mentioned that you sometimes have to hunt around for the right "TiVo model" to use since they have every TiVo model in their database, and all support the same codes, but they don't have Standby in all of the entries. So, if you don't have a Standby code listed in the codes for the model you selected, just choose a different TiVo model until you get one with all of the codes you want.

I switched to URC remotes a while back so I don't have any recent Harmony configs I can check for you to give you the optimal TiVo model to use, my apologies...
