FIOS Voice Remote no longer controls volume on receiver

After the latest update in April all of a sudden our voice remote no longer controls the volume on our Bose receiver. Up until the firmware update it worked fine. Our Bose system is connected by the optical input and was working fine with voice remote until this update. Now it doesn’t work. We have reset the remote several times but it still doesn’t work.  It is paired with our Samsung TV.  Anyone else have this issue?

Glad to hear you are finally over that! Just remember what you did in case it happens again!

Do you still have the Bose receiver in the loop in your setup? If so you'll have to reset the remote and correctly program it for the Bose, making sure it is turned on throughout the process.

1. Reset: Menu > Settings > Voice control > Fios TV Voice Remote > Program FiOS TV Voice Remote > Reset remote setup

2. Manual: Menu > Settings > Voice control > Fios TV Voice Remote > Program FiOS TV Voice Remote > Manual setup. Need to enter the correct model# for your TV. The setup will ask you if yu are using a receiver, say yes and add the Bose in. Make sure you go through the ENTIRE process or it won't work.

Thanks for the suggestion. We did reprogram the remote but it still doesn’t control the receiver.  After programming it states that the remote will now control the TV and Bose audio but it only controls the TV. We have to use the Bose remote for the audio.

Yes, I followed your directions to reprogram the remote. Thank you for your help. Verizon called today but I missed the call. I will call them back tomorrow.

I know this might sound redundant, but support sent me this for you to try. Please follow the instructions EXACTLY.

Thanks.

1) Turn on TV & Bose Receiver
2) Turn on CEC on both TV & Receiver (If not enabled before)
3) Reset remote programming from the menu
4) Auto program the remote again. Now check the volume on Bose Receiver.
5) If the user is not able to control Bose volume, perform a manual program the remote for Bose receiver through OSM first. If OSM didn't work, try using model number.

When giving help, please don't use acronyms, like CEC.  Define them for those of us not working at some TV tech support place.

Would you rather have me say Consumer Electronics Control?  CEC is what the function is called by most electronic manufacturers. Some use different names:

Trade names for CEC technology

Trade names for CEC are:
• 1-Touch Play (Roku)
• Anynet+ (Samsung)
• Aquos Link (Sharp)
• BRAVIA Link, BRAVIA Sync, Control for HDMI (Sony)
• CE-Link, Regza Link (Toshiba)
• E-link (AOC)
• EasyLink (Philips)
• Fun-Link (Funai, Sylvania, Emerson, Magnavox, Philips)
• HDMI-CEC (Hitachi)
• INlink (Insignia)
• Kuro Link (Pioneer)
• NetCommand for HDMI, Realink for HDMI (Mitsubishi)
• RIHD (Remote Interactive over HDMI) (Onkyo)
• RuncoLink (Runco International)
• SimpLink (LG)
• T-Link (ITT, Thomson)
• VIERA Link, HDAVI Control, EZ-Sync (Panasonic)
• CEC (Vizio)

So if you dont say the brand of your device in your question, its simpler to refer to CEC. Besides, we all know you know how to use Google.....

Also your user manual usually defines the manufacturer's name for CEC in the glossary.

Our Bose system doesn’t have CEC.  It’s a Lifestyle V30.  The TV has the CEC setting. Would this still work?

Give it a shot! You never can be sure. You should enable CEC in both the TV and the box .

We tried your suggestions from Support. Unfortunately, it still didn’t work.  Up until this latest update, 6.9, everything worked perfectly. We were able to control both the TV and audio receiver with the FIOS voice remote.

I finally fixed it!  I had to manually enter in our audio receiver model number.  After that we are back to the way we were before.  Thank you for all of your help and support.

OK, I assume you went through the procedure I just posted, so I'll let support know that didn't fix the issue. Thanks for getting back!
