    Is there a way to discover a remote control code to program into the tivo remote by using an IR receiver on a PC? I am trying to get my Vizio soundbar to work with the volume buttons on the TiVo remote, and have tried all the ones I found on this forum for other vizio products. Thanks.

    The most straight forward way to get it to work is to use the Search feature on the remote.

    Setup Instructions - Remote Control Programming Codes

    I just did it the other day for a TCL TV. It took just a few minutes. I noticed at one point that the Volume went down instead of the expected TV Power off, so keep pressing forward until you get it to operate properly.

    Then it doesn't exist.

    The 'search' function runs through the entire Library that is pre-loaded in to the remote.

    Once it gets through the entire list, it usually blinks and exits.

    Try a Harmony Remote?

    Home automation professionals usually have a device that read IR codes from a remote control. Perhaps you can find someone in your area to read the codes you need.

    Your best bet would be either a Harmony (if you want to go into that world), or a TiVo learning remote (the Glo and Slide Pro can do it)
