The OP asked for a discrete code. When I hear discrete code(s) for Standby I think of two different codes: One to put the device in Standby and one to take the device out of Standby. Sort of like discrete power on and off commands. I don't believe there are discrete codes for Standby. There is indeed an advanced code for Standby, 152, as documented in the link provided by mmascari; this code is a toggle of Standby on/Standby off.

In a macro, you can combine TiVo and Standby to get On and Off.

TiVo Always takes you to TiVo Central, even when off.
TiVo-Standby Will take you to TiVo Central, then enter standby.

It's not quite a discrete enter standby, exit standby. But it's much better than trying to navigate the menu in a macro.

Nice workaround! I hadn't thought of that one, but then again I leave my two DTivos on all the time. I have both of them sending signals to the TV in my master bedroom, so having them on all the time makes selecting them from the MBR as easy as selecting inputs on the MBR TV. I'm going to document that one in my JP1 notebook for future reference.

I'm trying this on a MX-500. Its got a system off button and I can program individual macros. I could program the DTV button then down 6 times and then select but it seems like such a pain.

I keep it in standby for 2 reasons. It saves the buffer and it turns off the green light.

As far as an on button I just use the DTV as it takes me to the main screen. Since I don't need a discrete code for on I just need one to get into standby.

The codes referenced in the hifi-remote link will work with recent OneForAll remote controls. If your OFA remote takes the VCR/0618 or SAT/1142 device code then the advanced codes listed can be used, no JP1 cable required. Many folks keep an OFA remote control around just to program these codes into other universal remote controls.

Programming a OFA remote using JP1 software and cable is a good way to get more out of your OFA remote. Using JP1 you can use your PC to program your remote to do things it would not normally do out of the box. For example, you could program the device keys on the remote to contain macros that would select the appropriate inputs on your TV and AV receiver.

Yes the 2117 will work. With the VCR device programmed with code 0618 or SAT with 1142, do the following:

1. press and hold P
2. scroll down to KEYMOVER
3. press SELECT
4. press VCR or SAT key
5. tap P, do not hold
6. enter 1-5-2
7. press SELECT
8. press VCR or SAT
9. pick a key.

The MX-500 is a learning remote, so you can teach it most any command. If you want to use Standby in a macro, the MX-500 needs to learn it to a key first. You can use the remote that came with your tivo box, assuming this remote has a Standby button (don't they all?), or you can learn the command from the 2117 once you've assigned the Standby command to a 2117 key using Edmund's instructions. Once the MX-500 has learned a command on a key it can be used in a macro.

I have used the TiVo-Standby macro to turn off TiVo for a long time. When I received the 7.1 software "upgrade", my macro stopped working. The problem turned out to be that TiVo would no longer accept the two remote codes so quickly together, so I had to add a delay between them to get the macro working again.

By the way, I use TiVo-Left macro to go to TiVo Central. Otherwise it will go to Now Playing if it happened to already be on TiVo Central.

152 works great but I have 4 Tivos, Two HD and two SD. They are set to remote codes 1-4. 152 is for remote code 0. How do I get 152 to work for my Tivos which are not set to remote code 0?

Using 152 turns them ALL on or off at the same time.

If you were to get a OFA urc-6820, 8820, 10820, or 6690, each has setup codes for tivo remote addresses 1-4. And all use the same advanced codes, accept you would need to add two zeroes to the FRONT of EFC, since the above remotes only tak 5 digit advanced codes. so 152 would be 00152.
