I recently purchased a Vizio VHT510 soundbar and I can not get it programmed to my Fios remote. All the codes I have tried have not worked (none listed with fios audio, the vizios under fios tv, and the vizio codes in manual).
I am not sure what to do now.
I am sorry that you are having trouble programming your sound bar with our remote control. What you can try to do is a code search on the remote. You can do this by pressing the TV + OK or AUX + OK at the same time, release both buttons. The code you want to type in is 9-2-2. After typing in that code press the play button right below the DVR button one time, and then hit the fast forward button on the remote. (The button to the right of the Play button) Each time you hit the fast forward button it sends a new code to the device. You should see the TV or AUX button light up each time you hit the fast forward button. Continue to hit the fast forward button until the device powers on or off once your device does that hit OK to store the code. There are about 300 codes, if you see the TV or AUX button blink twice at the top it has reached the end and unfortunately there may be no code for your particular device.
Also depending on which list of codes you have, 1292 may not be listed. I know for every Vizio TV I have had to help program this code has worked but unsure about the sound bar but try it out.
I hope this helps out!

sounds like you have the Philips RC 1445302 Remote (four button universal)
Vizio 0891, 0912, 1783 0205, 1992
Also can use 0057, or 1292
It's important to note that these are for vizio TV's usually and for use with the four button remote from Verizon.
the TWO button remote shown below will only control TV's and the Vizio Sound bar is a home theatre hook up audio device, so that would normally get programmed on ONLY the four button remote, under aux.
With the sound bar turned on, The 9-2-2 code would be the way to go but you would do AUX + TV (two seconds) then enter code 9-2-2 and then hit play one time and then the fast forward button repeatedly until the soundbar turns OFF then stop, and then try to test it by hitting power and seeing if it turns on, hitting volume to control the volume.
Just keep in mind that the Verizon remotes are garunteed to work the STB's but not all TV's or third party equipment. If it doesn't work you may need to think about using multiple remotes, or buying a different universal remote that controls motorola cable boxes.

Instructions and Help for the Philips RC 1445302 Remote
Set up (without Guide)
On my Insignia soundbar what I did was connect the soundbar audio directly to the Verizon STB audio out and changed the remote to control the STB volume instead of the TV. Then I plugged the soundbar into the switched outlet on the back of the verizon STB.
In the menu of the STB changed it to turn off secondary outlet when STB is turned off.
On the soundbar turn it on and set the volume up high.
The Insignia stays turned on; when the power is removed on the STB outlet the sounbar turns off. When the STB outlet is turned on the soundbar goes back to on state. This controls turning soundbar on and off and the STB controls the volume of the soundbar now.
Not the preferred way but works. Might work with the Vizio.
