Connect sound bar

Trying to connect my XR11 remote to my Polk sound bar and still be able to use the remote to turn the TV on and off. I need to be able control both. My older remote was doing this, but we got a new box and thus a new remote. Is there a code I can use?

Pair your XR11 to the box(pls and setup, then press the Xfinity button and enter the 3 digit code) and then follow the onscreen instructions for TV and then Audio. Polk Audio is listed, hope there's a working code there for you.

I don't know if you've solved this issue.  I just got the Polk MagnifyMax SR and the only two codes that actually control the volume (up/down) and mute on the Polk are either 32270 or 33429.

 

Unfotunately neither one of those, nor any of the 9 listed on the cable box setup screen turn the Polk power on and off.  My Sony TV turns the soundbar on as a related function of CEC (Bravia sync) but nothing turns the soundbar power off other than the Polk remote.

 

If anyone has a different code suggestion for a Polk Soundbar, I would appreciate it.

Re: Connect sound bar

I already had the LG tv & Xfinity RX11 remote control. The speakers on the tv are very poor so I decided to add a sound bar. After I got the sound bar up and running, Then I followed the instructions on this forum and pressed the "Xfinity" button on my remote.. I had to try two or of the suggested codes (5 digit) for  the Polk before it worked. I can now control my tv and and the volume & on & off  for the Polk soundbar with my Xfinity remote.
