Sony sound bar & Uverse remote?

I have a Sony soundbar for the audio for my tv, is there a way to control the volume with the Uverse remote? I did get it to connect under the AUX button but it does not control the volume at all.

JasonT32 - Yes, that is because when the TV is programmed it is ALWAYS in control of the sound. You need to change it.

att/ok - 955 - enter Will change to volume follows mode button.
att/ok-955-aux-enter will change to ALWAYS control Sony.

How about power?
att/ok-977-att-tv-aux-enter will add aux to power sequence.
Note that enter is bottom right (Not the OK button)

JasonT32 - You tried codes on the list & 1345 worked
or
you searched got it programmed & were able to determine the code.

Except for volume & power, other buttons may or may not work. Often menu or tv/video buttons do not work.

All you can do with the U-verse remote is keep looking for a code that provides more robust support.

For full support you need a Logitech Harmony. Harmony also has direct functions that do not appear as buttons. For example, it has HDMI1 & HDMI2. No need to navigate the menu. Change inputs with one button press.

Hey Jason - If your issue has been solved to your satisfaction, please mark the solution or solutions as "accepted solutions" that helped you, so that others will know where to turn.

 

Ironically, I bought both a Sony soundbar and a Samsung TV, this weekend!

For those curious,remote code 4029 under the "Aux" mode, worked for my Sony Soundbar.  I gave up trying the auto find for the soundbar as it turned the TV off several times.  That code was from the Home Theater in a Box category.

 

I now have three devices to power on / off, from my single press of the U-Verse remote,  power switch.  It will be a hard habit to break - putting the remote down too quickly as we used to have only two devices.

Definite Kudos on the att/ok.  This worked for my Motorola DVR to Sony STR-K700 surround sound.   You would think ATT would put this in the manual.

If you got the Sony bar that has the HDMI through (newer generation of Sony HTCT260, and all HTCT660)

, and your TV supports CEC (Consumer Electronics Control) the set up can be hooked up the following way:

 

1. Cable Box to Sony Bar - HDMI

2. Sony bar to TV - HDMI

 

Make sure the TV is set to use CEC (check the manual, as only 1 or 2 TV HDMI inputs on your TV usually support CEC), and then your TV will automatically control your SONY bar volume.  Either way, if HDMI is an option, go through the expense and hook that up, avoid analog connections.

I bought the Sony CT-660, but none of the U-verse remote codes seem to work.  I tried both manual input and the automatic search.  Do you know the code for the Sony Soundbar CT-660?

 

Thank you,

nayrmot - There are not necessarily codes for all devices.

A work around is to control the audio level of the STB. This will vary the level whether you are using TV sound or soundbar sound, but not DVD source.

Program - att/ok - 955- enter.
In att mode set the STB sound to 15.
Set TV sound to a comfortable level
Set soundbar sound to a comfortable level.

While watching in att mode the volume button will vary the level

Or, you could get another remote I believe this is the least expensive alternative - http://www.amazon.com/s/ref=nb_sb_noss_1?url=search-alias%3Daps&field-keywords=RCRP05BR
