I just recently hooked up my Sony home theater system to my Uverse STB. I found the proper code and it does power on and power off the HTIB. Problem is... The volume control still wants to raise and lower the volume on my TV. I have done the ATT/OK 955/Aux reprogram that doesn't get me where I want to be. I need to be able to switch back and forth. My wife gets over whelmed by more than one remote. Is there a way to be able to control the volume on both the TV and HTIB separately? With the ATT Uverse black remote? I really don't want to leave my HTIB running all the time.
Thanks for looking.

If there is a way to control the volume I have not been able to figure it out. I'm using the "AUX" button to power on and off my Sony HTIB for my BR TV. I've tried everything using the black and silver remotes. Neither one will do volume.
Some here suggest buying a Harmony remote and that will work. You can take a look at them here.

I have it set up right now to control the volume on my Sony HTIB. It does indeed work. Problem is I don't want the home theater running all the time. I only want to use it when I'm watching movies. Then go back to controlling the volume on my Panasonic Plasma the rest of the time. I'm only wondering if I'm missing something. Or the remote can only control the volume on one device at a time. Default if you will.

The U-verse remote can control each independently, but the Logitech is still better.
The key to the U-verse is - att/ok -955 - enter.
This causes the volume control to follow the mode key.
In att mode - controls STB
In TV mode - controls TV
In aux mode - controls HT.
This is great, except you watch in ATT mode. So, you can leave the TV & HT at some mid level and vary the STB or you have to play with the mode buttons, often.
With the logitech 300, You could specify which to use the most & always have access to the others by selecting the device.
If you upgrade to a Logitech with more activities, you can have two activities -
Watch TV - Turns on STB & TV & selects STB input on TV & varies TV volume.
Watch TV w HT - Turns on STB & TV & HT & selects HT input on TV & varies HT volume.

So, it all comes down to how many activities a remote can do. I see.
One of the Harmony's would accomplish what I want. Versus the ATT remote that I would have reprogram each time I want it to do a different activity.
Thanks for the info.

Great explanation. I think I'm going to check out some Logitech remotes. I have all Logitech peripherals for my PC's. So, it only makes sense to go that route.
