Programming XR11 remote to work with Yamaha RX-461 receiver

I recently got Xfinity for my cable tv service. I have a Yamaha RX-461 receiver that I cannot get to fully work with the XR11 remote. There are some codes that will allow me to work the volume and turn off the receiver, but not turn it on. I've used all of the codes provided by the on-screen setup through the cable box. Are there any suggestions to get the reomote to also turn on the receiver? In reading other threads this appears to be a common problem.

I've got the same problem with the Yamaha RX-V1800 receiver. Volume and power off works, but not powering on. Did you happen to get power on working on your RX-461?

Any help from the community would be appreciated.

Thanks

I had issues programming my remote; I discovered that I wasn't following the step-by-step directions exactly.

Press the A button and follow the remote setup.
