    Hi,

    That was the problem, the power needs to be off! I am all set!


    I had one question about the sony reciever, I have four speakers in my ceiling & it is wired to the front & also rear surround. The sound seems to mostly come from the front. Is there a way to make the rears equally as loud?

    Thanks,
    Rich

    My older Sony receiver had a setup for adjusting the levels from all speakers. I suspect yours does to.

    This thread and is awesome. Code 1059 worked on my STR-DG710 - it doesn't power it off, though. Any way to make the Tivo remote power off both the TV and the receiver? Seem to remember there was a way to do that with my DirecTivos way back when.

    I believe you can only control both tv and receiver with the Glo-Remote:

    Press TiVo & Power until steady red light, Press TV Code (Your TV Code #)
    Press TiVo & Mute until steady red light, Press Receiver Code (1059)
    Press TiVo & Power until steady red light, Press Receiver Code (1059)

    Does the original remote for the DG710 have separate buttons for ON and OFF? The TiVo remote may only be sending the ON command instead of a Power toggle. If so, there may be another remote code which will allow the toggle to be used.

    Becasue it is telling you how to change the control code set your Sony TV responds to. The AV1 set is the one that works with your remote

    You're full of it, the link in the post that quote of mine was refering to sent you to codes for the White UEI made directv remotes, which are useless with tivo remotes. No one knows more about the white directv remotes, the tivo remote and AV1/AV2 sony codesets, so don't EVER quote me out of context again.

    Is it possible that the page linked may have changed since it was posted a year ago? :)

    it didn't change by much, a year ago it dealt with UEI made directv remotes, now it has EU Kemaleon UEI/OFA made remote. still isn't helpful to the tivo peanut remote.

    We're refering to the link in the third post in ths thead, just above post of mine that was quoted,. In which the quote was dealing with.

    Tried all the similar fixes for my system and none worked. Am trying to get a Peanut Tivo remote to control a Sony STRDG-820 that shipped with a AAP-021 remote. I think I am getting the receiver to switch to AV1 because after I do that the sony remote doesn't control the receiver. But none of the remote hacks seem to work. By the way, I have also posted this problem at remotecentral. If someone knew the specifics of the aap-021, I could the use suggestions in the av1-av2 post above and on remotecentral. It doesn't seem to act like the remote shipped with the dg800 or dg910 which i would have thought to be compatible. Its also entirely possible that I am doing the procedure wrong on either the receiver, remote or peanut. So if I knew that the same procedure that worked for others on the dg910 would work for the dg820/aap021 then I would keep trying.

    Many of the sony receiver models over the years had that problem, only the the receiver could change and not the oem remote. You have to choose, peanut remote or oem remote? you could look to upgrade your oem remote to sony from higher av receiver, where it can be switch to AV1 codeset. Or just upgrade to a GLO tivo remote, and leave the sony receiver & oem remote set to AV2, and teach the GLO remote the volume & power commands

    I know this thread is old, but when you Google search "Tivo" and my brand of Sony receiver, it comes up and I thought perhaps this info would be helpful for folks that have a Sony STR-DG800 receiver. If you do, you can switch your receiver to AV1 and then enter 1059 on the Tivo remote to control the volume. Problem is, you lose the Sony remote, it quits working. However, you can fix this IF you have a Sony STR-DG800 receiver AND your remote is model number: RM-AAP008 (mine was). After you switch your receiver to AV1 (by turning on your receiver while holding down the Input Mode button) you then do this to your remote:

    1. Press RM Setup. The RM Setup indicator flashes.
    2. Press the numeric button 1 for AV1 or 2 for AV2. The RM Setup indicator lights up.
    3. Press Enter. The RM Setup indicator slowly flashes twice and the command mode switches.

    The enter button is directly under the numeral "9". This gave me the ability to control the volume and mute on my Sony receiver, and it gave me back complete usage of my Sony remote as well. The full instructions are here:

    www(dot)remotecentral(dot)com/cgi-bin/mboard/rc-sony/thread.cgi?4020

    The instructions are about halfway down the page, and it starts with the sentence:

    "On the remote (STR-DG800 with RM-AAP008 remote only)."

    Just thought I'd mention this for folks out there that have the STR-DG800 receiver and RM-AA008 remote. There are a few of us.
