Want to use my Tivo remote for volume on Roku Soundbar

I have a Tivo Bolt and a Roku Soundbar. I would like to use the Tivo remote to control the volume and mute on the Roku soundbar. Does anyone know what code I can program into the Tivo remote that will control the Roku soundbar?

Re: Want to use my Tivo remote for volume on Roku Soundbar

Sorry, but there isn't one. The Roku Soundbar uses the same IR code set that roku ten years ago used. Recently they added to the Roku IR code set, commands for tv power, tv vol up, & vol down, and mute. They don't only work on the soundbar but any recent roku connected to tv by hdmi-cec. These IR TV commands initiate a HDMI-CEC pulse from the roku to control the tv its connected to. So its IR from the remote and hdmi-cec signal to the tv. 

If you were to get tivo remote with learning feature like the tivo slide remotes, then get UEI made remote that accepts advanced codes for roku and has roku setup code  03061 on board. like the One-For-All urc-7880 remote or Inteset 422-3 remote. The advanced codes are:

 

tv power 00147

tv vol up 00134

tv vol down 00136

tv mute 00140

to map them to keys on the uei remote:

 

1. roku device

2. press and hold set or magic for two blinks release

3. enter 9 9 4

4. tap set or magic for one blink

5. enter 5 digit advanced code

6. pick a key
