Not directly, but you can put the TiVo into Standby mode. It will still record normally, but it will not output any audio or video.
You should be able to program the TiVo remote to control the sound bar and TV so that you only need one remote. I have a ZVOX sound bar, and this setup works for me. When I want to turn off the TV, I press the TiVo
button followed by Slow
. This takes me to the Messages and Settings menu. Then, I press Channel Down
or just Select
if Standby is already highlighted. Finally, I press the Power
button to turn off the TV. My sound bar automatically goes into standby mode a minute or two later. It sounds like a lot when you write it out, but it's really not that much trouble. By the way, I use the classic TiVo menus, so the sequence may be slighly different if you're using the HD menus.Edited by Rick313 - 6/29/13 at 7:26am
