Thank you for your reply. Unfortunately, code 10178 is a TV code. It does work to change the volume on the soundbar but I it doesn't allow you to turn the TV on and off. I'm looking for an audio-specific code (starting with "3") or a way to reprogram the power button to work with the TV.

I'm looking for an audio (only) code for the XR2 remote that works with a Vizio S3821W soundbar. I want to be able to use the power button for the TV but the volume buttons for the soundbar. I know this question has been asked many times in the past but I'm starting a new thread in the hopes that someone has found a code that works.
I KNOW THERE IS A SOLUTION TO THIS PROBLEM! How do I know? Because I had it working previously. I remember when I got this XR2 box I had the same problem and was able to find a single page somewhere on the internet that had the solution. Unfortunately, I got a new TV and, without thinking, I programmed the remote with the new TV code which wiped out the audio code on the remote. And now I can't find the page on the internet that was helpful previously. Here is some pertinent info:
1) TV code 11758 works for volume up/down but then you can't use the power button to turn off the TV. 2) The code for my new TV is 10650. Using that code I can use the power button but, obviously, the volumen up/down no longer work with the soundbar. 3) I have tried the -994- method of setting the ECF codes for volume up/down but none of the codes work with this remote. I always get a red flash+green flash when I try that method.
Most importantly, I'M NOT GOING TO BUY A UNIVERSAL REMOTE. You may personally believe that is the best option but if you do, please, keep it to yourself.
Like I said, I know there is a solution out there. Your help is much appreciated.
