XR15 remote turn on/off audio?

I just got a XR15 remote. One of the “improvements” is the removal of the tv-only power button with the power button now supposedly doing double duty as all power as well as tv power. The problem I have is that it will not power on or off my Yamaha audio. Yamaha volume and mute work with the remote (it is paired), but power does not. What am I doing wrong?

Did you try all codes? And the different ways to find codes?

Thank you for the response. I have programmed the remote to control my audio. Indeed, the remote controls the volume and mute functionality without issue. The power button simply does not turn on and off the audio unit. It turns off the tv, though. My old remote turned off both no problem. I am hoping there is a way to turn the power button into an all on/off button.

adding... if your old xfinity remote controls the audio device you can read the code from it to use in the new remote.
