    Had the TiVo Mini for about 5yrs now, a couple weeks ago it stopped powering on/off the TV and controlling the volume. I thought it might have lost the programming, used the TVs remote until I googled how to program it.

    I went through the whole list of about 20 control codes for Samsung TV and none of them worked. Does this functionality sometimes fail on these devices?

    Also, will a regular TiVo Remote work on them. I've got two TiVo remotes (somewhere) that were for my TiVo HD boxes. I can try to dig those out if they would work.

    Thanks!

    Any TiVo remote should work for the TV.

    Thanks Joe - Used on an old one TiVo HD remote and it's working fine.

    Krkaufman - fresh batteries was the first thing I tried. I believe something in the IR portion died. The RF is working fine.

    Going to try tearing it apart and seeing if I can't repair the IR as I like the smaller peanut w/ the Select in the middle of the directional pad and guide below it. The TiVo HD remote has the select below the directional and the guide where the 'zoom' button is on more recent remotes.
