Need programing codes for tivo remote (specifically input button)

Tivo remote (auto search option for codes) was able to match my Vizio 40-P telivision. However, the input button on the tivo remote....just doesn't seem to find the code, and have looked everywhere. Would like to program input code on tivo remote, to work the Vizio input change option. Thank you.

    I have the 32" inch Vizio and although I found the code for volume, mute and channels, I cannot get a code that will operate the "Input" for the TV.


    Has anyone figured out the secret?

SOURCE: TIVO DVR : Won't Change Channels

Set up your infrared blasters connected from your IR port on the Tivo and by placing the two lead lights in front of your cable box so it (the cable box) can read the signal.  Then go to Channel settings accessed through Tivo Central and follow the questions. It will ask you to change channels until the remote is working correctly.  This all worked on a different "input" on my Mitsubishi TV (it has multiple inputs.  I have the cable input on a different "input" to make it work.  Hope this helps.  Call TIVO tech assistance because they are the ones who talked me through this.

If it's the only TiVo in the room, try the codes for Philips brand VCRs.

Trying to set up tivo series 2 without remote


There are different codes depending on whether the Tivo was set to respond as a specific device (1 or 2) on the remote or by standard default (device 0). Also, typically each universal remote has its own code for each device, which is specific to the remote, not the device you wish to control. For the $20.00, it might not be a bad thing to simply buy a new universal remote that is capable of controlling a PVR (There are many good ones out there).

Picture stays frozen on Powering Up


It may be that the Tivo has gone south. One option would be to send the Tivo in for service. Often times, the first thing to fail is the hard drive which could be causing your problem. To fix this, you could either purchase an upgrade kit with the Tivo software preloaded or purchase a new drive and configure and install the software yourself. Your service subscription is tied to the box id, not the hard drive.

You can find out more inforamtion on www.tivocommunity.com or look specifically for the hinsdale howto which talks about upgrading the tivo. If this is the problem, the advantage is that you may come out with a Tivo with more storage. If the hard drive is not the problem, this will be of no use.

Can I use HUMAX like a 24 hour surveillance recorder?


For the TIVO series 2: hit the TIVO button, then go to messages and settings, then to to video input, then go to change input, then pick which input your camera uses. It will ask you if you can see the picture. If you can click the answer and then hit the select button. Then hit the TIVO button again then hit watch live tv. 
The Humex should work very similar.

automatic code search. this may take a while to do but it works. hold the directv button and tv power until the red light stays on. while its on press the channel up button (this will search for a code). release and test with the tv power button. if the tv does not turn off, press the channel up button again and test with the tv power. when the tv finally goes off, press the enter/last button (bottom right corner of the remote) to store the code
