How to Sync a TiVO Remote

Updated July 19, 2017

TiVo is a digital video recording system that allows you to record television programs, rewind and fast forward recorded programs, rewind real-time television programs, and set up preferences for recording your favourite programs automatically. Once your TiVo digital video recorder (DVR) is installed, it will automatically allow you to change channels through your TiVo remote. You will can also sync your TiVo remote control to adjust the volume and turn your television on and off.

Turn on your television and navigate to the TiVo Central Menu using your TiVo remote.

Scroll down to "Messages and Settings" with your TiVo remote and press the "SELECT" button.

Scroll to "Settings" with your TiVo remote and press the "SELECT" button.

Scroll to "Remote, CableCARD, & Devices" with your TiVo remote and press the "SELECT" button.

Scroll to "Remote Control" with your TiVo remote and press the "SELECT" button.

Scroll to "Part 1: TV power, volume, and mute" and press the "SELECT" button. You should see a list of television brands on the screen.

Scroll to your television brand and use the TiVo remote to press "SELECT." A screen with codes for television remotes and instructions for entering them into your remote should appear.

Enter the first code that appears on the screen. Try to adjust the volume to test if the code worked. If it does not work, then try entering the second code. Keep going down the list of codes until you are able to control your volume using the TiVo remote.
