I'm switching from a Charter Motorola box to the new mini and having trouble controlling it. Because of other things attached I have the mini downstairs and the sound going through a receiver. I have the universal box that converts RF to IR also downstairs - all worked fine the sound and TV control with the charter box. I switched to the mini and the installer could not get the MX-980 to communicate with the mini. I saw the codes and there was not a mini to select but like 15 others including the bolt. None of these seemed to work. What was he doing wrong? In the mean time I have the TV and Sound through the TV all using the Tivo remote but of course I can't control my receiver with the Tivo remote that is why I need to get my MX-980 to control the Tivo mini.
