controlling volume of DCX3600-M settop box

I have powered speakers connected to the analog audio output of this box.  I need to be able to control the volume output (and mute) of the settop box via remote control.  How do you do this??

go into the boxes audio options, change it from fixed to variable.

Then you may need to go into the remote and change the volume up down from tv to cable. It's better to unlock it so you have to press the TV or the CBL button first if you also have a dvd player on your tv

 

Or you can lock it to cable, you'll need to look into the remote manual for that command, it's one of the 9xx ones

If the power amp does not have remote volume you will have to muck around with volume settings under device try narrow, wide, normal, see what happens to get best results. You will have to find a decent level for the device, and use the box, You MIGHT be able to get a decent level,,, Experiment.

 

If you have a stereo receiver, you can use the AUX control on your remote and use the volume control for the stereo.
