    This doesn't let me control volume on my sound bar does it?

    If your sound bar takes IR signals then it may be possible assuming you can find the 4 digit IR codes for it.

    I found the codes for the remote and put them in the first post. So you should be able to narrow down what works without a code search now. :D

    I just saw this on the TiVo FAQs
    "Your TiVo Stream 4K will automatically pair with your TV and A/V equipment during initial setup. At this time, the manual pairing of the remote with other equipment is not supported: this feature will be added soon.

    We do apologize for any confusion you may have seen online about a manual override of this functionality.

    Any adjustments to your TiVo Stream 4K will automatically be reverted back to the initial auto-remote setup."

    How do I Pair my TV and A/V Equipment with TiVo Stream 4K?

    It sounds like they plan to address this issue and also maybe the next firmware update will wipe these manual changes we've made? Unless I'm reading too much into it.

    Looks like Input doesn’t accept any codes beginning with a 2

    That's all we could ask for really. It shows they are seeing stuff we're complaining about and hopefully going to take action on it. It's not like I want to have to do this stuff, literally bought the device because of the remote and touted capabilities. If Tivo can surprise us by fixing the flaws I think we would all be very happy.

    Sure the manual override is not "supported" - it can't be. It's not part of the official product as supported just yet. If they basically said what's in the FAQ on release day then I think we all would have been a bit less agitated, but figuring this out possibly made them aware they need to fully bake it into the product and support it.

    Yeah I think the current remote firmware uses TV codes for Input. It is something that could be changed with a firmware update of the remote and I'd like to see them do so.

    Interestingly, after an overnight reboot, the remote no longer controls volume on my receiver, which worked after the initial setup and first os update during setup. Power button still turns the receiver off and on.

    Thank you very much for this! It was driving me crazy that I could not program this remote! A quick note to anyone not familiar with hacking your devises (like me). When you go to paste the commands in the terminal window, paste them one at a time, not all at once. I mistakenly did that first (D'oh!) but it did not work. When I re-did it one line at a time, it worked like a charm. as a matter of fact, I didn't even need to enter a code. it work like it was supposed to, and started controlling my TV

    My remote decided to stop controlling my onkyo reciever. Repairing doesn't fix it

    Help, I can't get this to work.

    I'm confused what to do after it reboots.

    My Stream remote controls my TV power/input just fine and I don't want to lose that. But I'd like it to control my Samsung soundbar.

    Do I hold TiVo+Back to put the remote in Pairing mode and then try codes? Or, per the instructions on TiVo.com do I THEN also hold TiVo+Mute (for AV systems)?

    I've tried every Samsung code on the supplied chart and none do anything.

    A few times I got the vol buttons to control the soundbar by doing TiVo+Back and then 0999. That's it. I didn't have to do the CH Up part at all. But as soon as I used TV Power or Input (which still worked), the ability to control the soundbar volume went away.

    What am I doing wrong? Is it possible to have a code for my TV for Power/Input and another code for the soundbar for volume?

    Also, if I want to try again do I just put the remote into pairing mode or do I have to repeat all the steps again?

    Try holding the Tivo button + Volume up until the red light comes on and then enter your soundbar code. If you can't find the proper code then try Tivo button + volume up until the red light comes on and then enter 1999 for search. Then press volume up button every 2 seconds until your volume mutes. Once it does see if it's there correct code by trying volume buttons and mute to see if they all work. If they do hot the center select button to save code.

    Thanks. I did try TiVo+VolUp on every Samsung code on the included sheet and the code I know works with my full size remote and I did the "search" for 50 codes. Nothing worked.

    Frustrating because for a brief time a few days ago I got it working so I know it's possible.

    Is there any difference between TiVo+VolUp vs TiVo+Mute?

    Do I have to run thru the developer menus or use that application to connect via IP again or since I did that once can I just go straight to finding codes?

    Is there a difference between 1999 and 0999? I seem to recall someone posting that TV codes start with one digit and audio codes with another. All the audio codes on the included sheet are 1's or 2's but the code I know works with my soundbar starts with a zero. (I had a hard time finding it when I set it up last time so I wrote it down)

    You shouldn't have to run through the developer options again. As far as I know the 0999 is tv codes and 1999 is audio codes. At least that's what worked for me. I pulled my hair out for a week until I finally got it working on my receiver. Hopefully someone else can help you more, I was just sharing what worked for me.
    If you know the code you shouldn't need the 1999 or 0999 anyway. Try Tivo+volume up and enter your code and see if it works. Sorry I can't help anymore.

    Has anyone actually gotten the 1999 search for an audio receiver to work? I've got 3 hours into it so far, with no results.

    Audio Receiver is a JVC RX-8000V, the real TiVo remote search works, but not the Stream 4K Remote.

    I'll take that as a solid "NO".

    I've gotten it to work with holding Tivo +Volume up button until the red light comes on and then enter 1999 and press channel up every 2 seconds until the receiver volume mutes. If it mutes, try your other volume control and if they work correctly save it by pressing select button (center of directional pad). If it doesn't control everything keep pressing channel up or repeat process.

    That's what worked for myself. Sometime else said it didn't work for them. Good luck.

    I did this. Pressed the button every two seconds; I counted how many time I pressed it. After 400 presses I gave up. Only takes about 35 presses on the a real TiVo remote to find my receiver. Beyond frustrated.

    I put the IP addresso and click connect, getting unauthorized error on adb and tivo screen has no authorization window popup. Should I connect the tivo via usb cable to the computer ?
