control Cisco box and tv volume separatesly with XR2 remote

My Vizio TV Volume is horrible so I'm trying to connect speakers. The XR2 controller seems to control only the TV volume. Is there any way of making the controller control the Cisco box and the Tv volume separately? Or even to control the box and I can control the tv with it's remote.

If you have your separate speakers connected to the television (NOT THE CABLE-BOX), the television menus allow you to use: tv speakers, separate speakers, or possibly both.

In this case the XR2 contoller should control the volume for whatever setting you choose on the tv's menu.

What type of separate speakers? Are you using an AV receiver with speakers, or a speakerbar? The XR2 can be set to control the volume of audio devices if it has a compatible code:
