How do you pair a remote for my Tivo when the code is unavailable?

The steps to pair your remote when a code is not available are as follows:

1. Cover the end of the TiVo remote control with your hand.
2. Hold down the TiVo and TV Power buttons simultaneously until the remote control's red (or amber) light remains on.
3. Remove your hand from the end of the TiVo remote control.
4. Enter code 0999.
5. After you enter the code, the red (or amber) light will flash three times and then remain on.
6. Press Channel Up once every two seconds. This will test hundreds of codes, one by one. Do not go any faster than this, or you may skip over a code that works.
