    Does anyone know if this remote will control most of the TiVo functions?
    I have a 100% Sony system (Sony receiver, Sony TV, Sony DVD player, Sony TiVo unit, and Sony Audio components), and I'm wondering is this remote will get me down to the elusive one-remote-for-all setup. My A/V receiver's remote does everything except for the TiVo. Will the RMAV2100 handle the TiVo, as well?
    Thanks,
    Jeff

    It's a learning remote with plenty of memory, so yes it will control Tivo.
    I don't personally like the remote because of other aspects though ... IMO if going touchscreen you should go all the way and get a Pronto so you can fully customize. With the Sony you are stuck with the built-in labels, they are probably close enough for your current system but if you change it in the future ...

    Just to close this out...
    I bought the remote, and it controled all of my devices, except for the TiVo, right out of the box. Took me all of about 5 minutes to learn the TiVo from its remote to the AV2100.
    I'm very happy with it, so far.

    Just picked up a Sony Tivo this weekend and love it. I also have that Sony remote and it works great with the unit. I'm very surprised with the Tivo. It's awesome!!!
