I got a new Sony Soundbar Model: HTCT260
DTV Remote is RC65X
I connected the soundbar through the Optical Port on the back of the TV
The DTV Remote only offers AV1 and AV2
How do I program the remote to control the soundbar - volume and power?
I have looked at the other threads and it's mostly about AV1 or 2 programming. Nothing about an Optical option.
Thanks in advance for your help.

What model DirecTV Receiver/DVR do you have?

Av1 and av2 are just aux settings on the Remote has
Nothing to do with optical
Or any other connection
As for remote programming slide
The slider on the directv remote
To av1 press and hold mute and select wait for flashes 991 flashes 3. Then press channel
Up repeatedly until the sound
Bar Powers off
If you get the unit to power
Off press and hold mute and select wait for flashes 993
Select this will lock the
Volume to the sound bar

Did you try to set it up through
The menu. Menu/settings/remote control/program remote/program av1 follow prompts

I just did and my model did not come up. So I chose I don't know my model number.
I followed the instructions - with the slider in DTV mode and I hate to be a jerk, I really don't want to go through 88 codes. I did 9 and that's about it.
From your first message, why would the channel up control the power to the soundbar? I don't get how that would work.
Code 10 worked but it only controls the volume not the power. Should I keep trying?

Power is controlled by the middle PWR button, not the ON and OFF buttons. you would need to slide the switch
