Some remotes have the master power key programmed buy default, some don't.
It's not really the TV you have, the macro should be in all the remotes, however some times when a remote is replaced the newer one might have been reset at the factory and the macro got removed, it just needs to be re-entered.
Is there a way to remove the master power so it does not turn the tv and the digital box off and on at the same time?? Our tv is broke and the tv needs to stay on and we just switched remotes and when I got it home it was automatically set to default using the master power and I cannot figure out how to take it off.
I want it to control the tv volume and the power just not at the same time as the digital box.
Copied straight from the Rogers Atlas Remote user manual:
USING THE MASTER POWER KEY
The Atlas DVR/PVR 5-Device Universal Remote Control

until the last-selected device key blinks twice,
9 - 9 - 5.The last-selected device key
will blink twice. Then press
3. For the first device you want in the
sequence,press a device key (e.g.,
CBL) once .
4. Repeat step 3 up to four more times to add the
second,third,fourth,and fifth device,as desired.
5. To save the settings and exit the program,press
SETUP until the last-selected device
key blinks twice, then release

You will see the devices power on or off
according to the programmed sequence.

I followed the instructions to the letter but still can't get the remote which came with my Nextbox to turn the cable box, TV and sound bar off at the same time while in cable mode. I have successfully programmed all the devices to respond but only when the remote is in the selected mode (TV, Audio, DVD etc.). It is rather annoying to have to switch back and forth just to turn everything on and off. The old cable box had an AC outlet for the TV and when you turned off the cable box the TV automatically turned off as well without the need for programming. Yes, I did read the instructions for this function. If these are the correct ones then I am at a loss to understand what's happening: http://www.urcsupport.com/images/uploaded_images/Atlas_OCAP_M1056.pdf
That i am aware, the remote will only do TWO devices all in one go.
To rogers box + tv or box + soundbar.
It allows programming of other devices into the other buttons, so you dont have to have multiple remotes out at once, but still have to manually turn them on/off.
I am guessing they started removing the power outlets from the box, as they were flakey and in my personal opinion dangerious. My mom blew TWO TVs having them through the outlet that way
Really when you start getting into the realm of running multiple devices all in sucession, you really need to start getting into the realm of the HARMONY remotes.
The rogers remote by default does turn on the Cable Box and TV with the power command by default but defaults CAN be changed. You can easily program the power on/off macro to control a third device like a sound bar, but it may or may not work or may not work reliabily, sometimes sound bars can turn on and off with the hdmi CEC signal from the TV set. its best to see if your sound bar supports this first, if so, try this way, if not, you can look up in the rogers remote about how to prorgam a macro, its basically the same thing as what the power on key does, it operates a macro, which is a set of key strokes in specific order.
I found a way to solve this guys. The instructions I found on this site are more detailed and helpful than anything Rogers provided. The key thing is to wait a few seconds for the other devices to respond once you press the Master Power to turn the cable off (or on). In a couple of seconds the other devices will turn off (or on) in sequence thus saving me the irritation of juggling multiple remotes. Here is the link for those of you who may have experienced a similar problem:
Thats a good point and thanks for adding that it helped you a lot.
My grandparrents mostly, will often call that 'the TV is on but the rogers box isnt' or vice versa
This happens when they 'fall out of sync' so to speak.
If you move the remote away from the devices to quickly, one may not turn on/off properly..
it takes a second or two for each remote function to happen.
@Danno that makes sense. I used to have problems getting my PVR and TV out of synch because I didn't hold the remote pointed long enough and only switched one of them. It was worse when I had the PVR located further from the TV and I had to hold the button and pan from one to the other. The processors in TVs an PVRs are not very quick.
