Sony Soundbar - Optical Connection - Programming Remote

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.

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.

Thanks again. Smiley Happy

WAIT.............

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
