I'm trying to get my RC73 remote to turn my Vizio soundbar on/off and control volume. I've tried going into settings, entering the Vizio model # and also tried the "I don't know my model" option but both resulted in a failure to program the remote. I keep getting "There was an issue programming your Vizio Audio with your remote. Retry or set up later.
Any help would be most appreciated.

The RC7X series remotes can't turn any soundbars/A/V receivers on/off by design, only HDMI-CEC can turn them on/off.
What is the model of receiver you have?

While you wont be able to control power with the RC7x series of remotes, try doing a Red Button Reset of the Genie/mini and try programing the remote again

Thanks for the replies. My A/V unit is a Vizio S4251w-b4. I can't find any info. on how to do a Red Button Reset.

Sorry, but you are wrong. I have two rc73 and a Visio Soundbar. Both control the soundbar until I made a mistake and reset one of the remotes .. I got it to control the soundbar by following the directions on the TV. Go to menu, settings, remote and follow the directions. When you get to the screen that says, installing code 1 of1, finish, then do it again, you will see, installing 1 of 2, finish then redo, you will get a screen that says use TV or soundbar. It works I just did it.
