Pair Ignite Remote with Sony AV Equipment

Probably been asked before.. how to do you program the Ignite remote to control the TV through AV system. Presently have Ignite modem connected via HDMI to a Sony STR DG920  AV receiver. Sony TV connected via HDMI to Sony AV receiver. Rogers tech set up the TV using the Ignite remote and everything OK except the volume to the system cannot be controlled by the Ignite remote. I have to use the AV remote to adjust volume. Tried pairing the AV using the Ignite remote and codes but wouldn't work. Anyone have suggestions?

Re: Pair Ignite Remote with Sony AV Equipment

If you click the setup tab for your Rogers remote you will see a section for "setup for audio device control". You can then have the remote control the AVR volume, turn it and the TV on/off.

 

There's also a section for "add new audio" where you can find the codes, or under "code finder".

 

If the AVR was in the loop when the tech came, he should have set it up properly to handle the TV and AVR, but not all techs are what I would call "proficient"

Check https://www.urcsupport.com/urc_product/rogers-xr11-2/  to find the proper codes for devices that pair with the Ignite TV remote.

 

Good Luck

Re: Pair Ignite Remote with Sony AV Equipment

Thanks for info, however this instruction appears to be pairing between the remote and TV. In my case I have the AV receiver between the Rogers box and the TV. Ignite remote works fine changing channels for TV video but not the audio control.  My previous Bell system remote handled both video and audio from the remote with the AV setup as described. Does the Ignite system allow only one component to be paired?

Re: Pair Ignite Remote with Sony AV Equipment

Hi,

 

I have the xr15 remote. I cannot seem to pair with my Pioneer AV receiver to control volume. I tried to do what you suggested above but I do not see any menu items "setup for audio control" on the ignite box setting menu.

 

Any suggestions ?

Re: Pair Ignite Remote with Sony AV Equipment

@gil_n71 : The recommendations here are not about how to do it on the box/TV, but rather using the URC website, link below, to do the setup for audio devices:

 

https://www.urcsupport.com/urc_product/rogers-xr15/

 

Click the Setup Tab and then "Add New Audio" which will give you the code for your device, which you can then setup as instructed on that same page.

 

Someone more familiar with Ignite may be able to guide you on how to do it using the box/TV instead.

Re: Pair Ignite Remote with Sony AV Equipment

Was anyone able to get this to work?  I can get the codes off the website fine.  The instructions for entering them are wrong for this remote though.  The instructions refer to (and show) using the "setup" button but there is no setup button on the Rogers remote.  

 

I've tried using the menu on the system but it doesn't work.  There doesn't seem to be any way to enter codes.  If I use the menu it forces me to keep pairing my TV.  If I do that I can eventually get to pairing the AV receiver (Yamaha) but the default code doesn't work and there is no option for trying a different code (if you select that it "doesn't work" it just brings up a message saying it can't pair with no option to try anything else).

 

There is probably some key combination that replaces the setup button to try and enter the codes manually but I have no idea what that is.

 

Thanks,

Vsts

For the new remote XR15, press and hold Rogers and Mute button together until the LED on remote changes from red to green, followed by 5 digit code. Remote blinks green twice after that.

Re: Pair Ignite Remote with Sony AV Equipment

After more internet searching, I also found that holding the A and the D buttons will do the same thing.  You hold them until the light turns green and then enter the 5 digit code you got from the website (link above).  The code worked fine for my Yamaha.
