Default Can't get my digital tuner remote to control the TV power

Hi all. I just set up this digital tuner:

http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00...ls_o00_s00_i00

and it works fine, but I can't get the power button on the remote to turn the TV on and off. Instead, it only turns the tuner itself on and off, leaving the TV on with a static screen.

The manual doesn't have anything to say about this, or about how to "program" the remote to the TV. Previously I had a Comcast tuner with my Comcast service, and that remote did turn the TV on and off, probably because there was a process of setting it up with a special TV code to do so.

Anyone know what to do? I went to the iView website but didn't see anything helpful there either.

Be aware the remote will not control the TV power, as with some of the more expensive converters which come with universal programmable remotes. Otherwise the devise appears OK.
That unit does not have a universal remote - it only controls the converter box.

Doh, thanks! I thought I had read all the reviews.
