Program your TiVo remote control

remoteYour TiVo® remote can work with the other devices in your entertainment system! Control power, volume, and mute on your TV; volume and mute on your A/V receiver (stereo system); and input selection on your TV — all from your TiVo remote!

This feature is available on:

  • All TiVo boxes

  3. Choose 'Remote Control Setup.'

    • Complete Part 1 to control your TV’s power, volume, and mute functions.
    • Complete Part 2 to control your A/V system.
    • Complete part 3 to control your TV’s input function (e.g., to switch between your TiVo box and other devices connected to your TV, like a DVD player or game console).
