Boss solo 5 tv tcl Roku

My tv mode is 55S405 tcl Roku tv
I tried the 2231 code and it doesn’t work, I’ve tried multiple times, cleared the remote and tried again. And still no working. I’m enjoying the sound bar, but part of the reason I purchased this was to cut out 3 more remote since this is universal.
And a side note. I programmed this to my Apple TV, I can turn it on and use it but how do I power off the Apple TV from the Bose remote?

I don't usually post to forums, but I thought I might have something useful for those trying get their TCL Roku TV's to work with a Bose Universal Remote (that ships with the Bose Solo 5 for example).

 

The listed remote code of 2231 (or the iterations after it by hitting "+") didn't work for me.  But as noted on this thread the code 2471 did work for my 2017 TCL Roku tvs.  Why?  I'm not sure, it's for a Insignia tv.

 

Once you program that  the following Bose Remote keys function as follows:

 

Turn on/off: Source Power (not power button)
Home: menu
Arrows move selection
select with ok
Back: exit
Play Button: pause/play

 

Hopefully I saved someone some time, good luck!

Re: Boss solo 5 tv tcl Roku

I found out my tv is Bluetooth only, and to turn off the Apple TV I have to put it in sleep mode, which isn’t bad

Hi JamesRock,

 

Thanks for the post, and I'm glad to hear you've figured out your issue.  I don't believe you can fully turn off an Apple TV, and sleep mode is the equivalent.

 

Let us know if you have any other questions.

 

Best Regards,

Re: Boss solo 5 tv tcl Roku

I ended up talking to a rep and finding out that it’s immoissible. The tcl tv is a blue tooth remote and the boss is a regular infared remote. So their not compatible. At least for now.
Ended up returning it and getting a different sound system.

Try the ViewSonic code 1805 for the DVD button Go off the home menu, program the code and keep Hitting Volume Up/Menu until it goes to the home menu. Then Exit.

I disagree with what the rep told you. If you take your TCL remote and hold a button down now take your phone camera it can see the infrared light. Just tested my Roku TCL remote for my brand new 55 inch and it indeed is infrared. However I can not find a code that works.
