Question about Tivo DirectTV Remote Remote Control

Volume and mute buttons suddenly stopped working

I've had the same remote and Tivo Unit for 5 years. Last night the volume and mute buttons stopped working. All other buttons work OK. In fact when I press the volume and mute buttons I can see it registering on the Tivo unit (the green light goes briefly yellow). I tried restarting the Tivo unit but that did not solve the problem.

Re: Volume and mute buttons suddenly stopped working

Thanks stivovance,

I solved the problem a while ago by reprogramming the remote settings. I had to reprogram both the volume and mute code and the tv input code. In fact, about two days after the initial fix the same problem recurred and I had to reprogram the codes again. Weird, but it has been working just fine for the last three weeks.

Sorry I forgot to post here that the problem had been solved.

Re: 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.

Hi, My Denon RC-1154 stereo has suddenly stopped working, it gets stuck on the initializing part - it gets to 2/4 connecting.... on the internet radio and freezes and so you can do anything with it? How...

follow this test and fix it. God bless you

The speakers are not connected properly. Check the speaker connections. The Mute function is activated. Turn off the Mute function. The volume is turned all the way down. Turn up the volume. Neither set of speakers is selected (if unit has A/B buttons to select sets of speakers). Press either A or B to select a set of speakers. Both sets of speakers are selected, but only one set is connected (if unit has A/B buttons to select sets of speakers). Press the appropriate button to deselect the speaker outputs which are not connected. The receiver is set to TAPE MONITOR (if applicable). Turn off TAPE MONITOR mode. Headphones are plugged into the main unit. Unplug the headphones. The source selector is set to the wrong source. Select the proper source. The impedance of the speakers is less than the rating for the system. Use speakers with the correct impedance rating.

My remote won't change from AUX to Tv and all of the buttons don't work on AUX except for the volume and mute, how do I get it back on tv? Thank you

Try to push the TV button that is lit red at top middle of remote for 5 seconds in stead of hitting input. In other words by holding the tv button down it might trigger it to respond better. Thanks Mike

My philips srp5107wm/17 only changes the volume on my tv no matter what device i have it set on

The Philips remote is set to "push trough" the volume/mute to the TV for devices that typically don't have a volume function. Older versions of Philips remote used to allow you to select the device to push volume to, but for some reason this is no longer available (or at least I haven't found out how to). So here is the solution I used.

Teach (learning function) the remote to use whatever device you like for volume/mute.

1, Press the button for the device you would like to change
2. Hold down "learn" and the button you want to teach ex. "volume up" until the red light comes on
3. Place the original remote of the device you would like to change the volume on 5-10 cm away from your Philips remote and press "volume up" for this example
4. Repeat these steps for the "volume down" and "mute" buttons
5. Repeat these steps for other devices you would like to "push through" volume/mute to a device other than TV

Hope this helps others. I did find that some devices like SAT may not allow you to change the volume/mute, but otherwise this workaround does the trick.

I have a Sony Bravia TV, only a year old, had several power outages and suddenly RM-YD028 TV remote is not working at all. On the Dish network remote, the satellite controls are working, but not TV...

If neither the DISH Network remote or the TV remote is working for you most likely your remote sensor is going bad. If you'd like to try readdressing the remote follow the steps and procedures below. Codes: 500, 837, 125, 808, 798, 640, 796, 783, 795, 797, 865, 846, 842, 563, 501, 810, 841, 781, 807, 838, 690, 758, 843, 845, 591, 839, 806, 840, 844
To program the remote:
1.) Hold the clear "TV" mode button for four seconds or until all four buttons at the top of the remote are lit.
2.) Press one of the three digit codes listed above followed by pound (#)
3.) Check for functionality by trying the volume power and mute.
Be sure to press the "SAT" button to return to satellite mode if the code works.

While watching TV the volume will suddenly mute.

Hi. Were you able to get this remote working again? I am going to suggest you try a firmware update, since you didnt mention that you had tried that. I find that usually solves weird problems like this one. You can do that by going through the following steps:

1. Connect your remote to the computer.
2. Launch the Harmony Remote Software, and log in.

3. Click "Downloads" at the top and click "Firmware"

4. The remote will go through the firmware update.

5. Select "Yes", and click NEXT to update the remote.

Voila! Hope this can help.

Directv AV1 switch Volume Problem

Did you try all the codes listed. Some work certain functions such as power but not volume. Did the installer leave a phone number where he could be reached other than directv toll free number? Did you receive the same remote as the original. Directv has two remote that are identical in appearance but one is rf capable and the other is infared. The RF remote has backlit keys and is compatible with just about any device.

Viewsonic remote RC00070P

Okay here's the fix.
Remove batteries. Re-install them wrong side in! Don't panic.
Reverse the direction of both the battery cells and install. Press "Power" button a couple of times and a few other buttons a few times. Then remove batteries and re-install the right side in.
