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?

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.

1)
From TiVo Central, select Settings & Messages > Settings > Remote, CableCARD, & Devices > Remote Control.

2) Highlight Part 1: TV power, volume, and mute and press SELECT.

3) The DVR displays a list of television brands. Use the UP ARROW and DOWN ARROW buttons and the CHAN DOWN and CHAN UP buttons on the TiVo remote to highlight your TV brand and then press SELECT.

4) The TV Remote Codes screen appears. Follow the instructions on this screen to enter a code into your remote control. If the first code does not work, repeat the instructions to enter the second remote control code, and so forth, until you find a code that works. The remote is now programmed to operate the TV.

5) If also programming to control volume & mute on an A/V receiver for surround sound; Highlight Part 2: A/V volume and mute and press SELECT.

6) The DVR displays a list of audio/video receiver brands. Use the UP ARROW and DOWN ARROW buttons and the CHAN DOWN and CHAN UP buttons on the TiVo remote to highlight your receiver brand and then press SELECT.

Programming my TiVo remote to control my Proview TV


  1. Cover the end of the TiVo remote control with your hand.
  2. Hold down the TiVo and TV POWER buttons simultaneously until the red light on the remote control remains on.
  3. Remove your hand from the end of the TiVo remote control.
  4. Enter code 0999.
After you enter the code, the red light will flash three times and then remain on.
  1. Press CHANNEL UP once every two seconds. This will test hundreds of codes, one by one.
IMPORTANT: Do not go any faster than this or you may skip over a code that works.
  1. If you press CHANNEL UP and your TV turns off, press ENTER to select the code. Press the TV POWER button to test the code. If your TV turns on, you have successfully programmed the remote

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).

If it were a Tivo series 3 you might have better luck with it.

I've had my series 2 Tivo for about 2 1/2 years and never found the correct codes for it. I think it works off of a list of TVs manufactures about 3 years ago.

Try this: On the Tivo remote press and hold the TV Power button and the Directv/TIVO button at the same time. Hold both buttons down for about 4 seconds or until remote light stays red. Then press the channel up button until the tv turns off. You may press the button over 100 times. You need to go slow. When the TV turns off press the enter button (or select button).

Volume and mute buttons suddenly stopped working


Try changing the batteries. Most times the "tivo" buttons will work but the "tv" buttons will stop working when the batteries are low.

If you have done that, go back into settings and program the remote again for your tv, then give it a shot.
