Direct TV RC73 remote and Bose Solo TV Sound System

My RC73 remote will not operate on/off function for Bose Solo TV Sound System. The volume works but not the on/off.  Any suggestions?

That's how it works. The RC73 remote cannot control audio device power on/off, only volume.  You'll need to rely on "HDMI CEC", if your TV and Bose support that.

Well then I guess the only only option is to move to a completely different move expensive remote. 

 

Thanks for the help!!

Re: Direct TV RC73 remote and Bose Solo TV Sound System

I have a rc73 remote for my sony tv connected to Directv.  I just purchased a Bose solo 5 sound bar.  I would like to program my rc73 remote to be able to control the volume/mute.  Help!

Trying to synch a Bose Solo to my RC73. Fine until the last prompt to press power button  but with that screen up, no function on the remote works. The Bose and the tv are on during the process but off button does nothing

Go to menu, go to program remote, after you enter your tv, you will then enter your audio device.  Worked for me with a Bose solo and an rc73 remote
