    Is that remote programmed for your TV ? A TV must be programmed in. If it is it should already control the volume of the TV?

    I went back to this post by you and it says you are switching to AV1 to get the volume to go up and down.
    You should be in this AV1 spot when you do the Mute and Select and hold for 2 blinks of the green light , then 993, 2 blinks of the green light and then press Select.
    This should work and then when the slider is in the DTV spot it will still change the volume.

    My TVs are all controlled by the D* remotes. I cannot get the remote on one HR to work correctly with the volume control for the SB that set uses for audio. I have the TV set's speakers turned off. It's the SB that's causing the issue, not anything with the TV or HR. I can't find a code that works correctly. I can let the remote find a code and I have done that. When it's setup that way all I can do to control the volume is put the remote in AVR1 mode. PITA.

    I've done that more than once and it doesn't work. This isn't a huge annoyance, I can control the volume from my FTV and ATV boxes and the Harmony remote and the original SB remote.

    When you want to try it again,
    Do this:
    Hold the mute and select buttons down until the light blinks 2 times,
    Type in 9 8 1 ( this resets the remote to factory settings )
    Then use your onscreen instructions to program your TV,
    Then the Sound bar,
    While you still have the selector on the AV1 or 2 press the mute and select and wait for the 2 blinks of the light, then type in the 9 9 3, wait for 2 blinks of the light and press Select. The volume, mute buttons should work no matter where the selector is when you want to use it. Even in the DTV spot.

    Okay, that's what I wanted. That seems like a protocol that might work. I'll try it when I get a chance, thanx for staying with this.

    Wait...I don't know what code works for the SB, I'm thinking I'd still have to put in a code before I hit the 993 thing, right? That's probably why the 993 doesn't work.

    Yes, soundbar needs to be working with the remote like it was before the 993 trials.

    And that's the problem, I don't have any idea what the proper SB code is. I tried the codes from the link you supplied, I'll try them again.

    If I am not mistaken you stated once that you had to let the Remote do a search to find one that worked ?
    Which Polk sound bar model do you have ?

    31289 32244 32115 32242 32228
    32270 30892 30189

    Yup, the only way I could get the SB to work with the remote was to let it search for the code. I have the Omni SB-1 Plus sound bar. I see a post where you put the codes, thanx, I gotta try them...

    Sorry about that.
    I just programmed a new RC66 for my TV and Yamaha and then the 993 plus the Select and it works.

    Did the 66 allow you to put in codes? Mine wouldn't.

    Yes, sort of.
    I used the interactive method for the TV. Then the Yamaha.
    After it found 1 for the Yamaha I did the Mute and Select ( hold them both down for 2 blinks of the green light ) 9 9 3, wait for 2 blinks, then press Select.
    It almost sounds like you are just counting the first 2 blinks as you press the mute and Select buttons but they do not count. It takes about 3 more seconds for it to blink 2 times.

    There is only 1 code for my OLD Yamaha and it will only turn it OFF , not ON and the volume and mute works with the Selector in the DTV spot.

    If you do it manually you would not go to the Program Remote on the Screen.
    You would get your codes and then start trying them like we have been discussing.

    Just in case, when you are working with the AV1 or 2, you have the selector on DTV, when it asked if it works you have to slide the selector to the AV1 or 2 that you are using and press the Power button ( this is not the ON or OFF button ), then slide it back to DTV spot to try the next code.

    (1)I've been programming the remotes since 2006. I know how to program them, I understood the blinks in 2006 and I haven't forgotten how to use them. It's not the method, it's the lack of codes for the SB.

    (2)Okay, tell me how to do this. I have the codes you posted, how do I put them in? I just tried to find a way to put the codes in and all I get is a message that tells me the remote is gonna search for the codes, I see no way to input them. This must be because I'm doing something wrong, I put in some codes the other day.

    Are you doing this with the Genie or an HR24 ?
    When you are trying the numbers is the selector in the AV1 or 2 ?

    I am at a loss here. I just did a new RC66X yesterday.

    Sorry for kind of "starting" this "mess" for Rich. Seems to me that those codes should work. If the remote controls the soundbar in AV1, the volume "punch-through" should work.

    This is the way I'd been doing it for years, most-recently the RC66x. It's currently controlling a 25 yr old "vintage" AVR. (For what it's worth I also managed to get the RC71 to operate the vol and mute of the same AVR - I think peds48 helped with that one a few yr back).

    Also for what it's worth, the last couple times I programmed RC6 remotes I used the old HR21 on-screen directions to program my codes and seemed to have had good luck doing that.

    One thing I have learned (the hard way) is that all DirecTV remotes need to have a TV programmed into them first (even if it's not the right TV) before they'll take any other type of programming.

    Anyway, thanks jimmie for trying to help.

    The code the OP used was 32609, which was only an upgrade code put into is x series of remote by the receiver. Maybe later remotes have it preset, I have no idea since I haven't had directv since the summer 2012.
