How to switch between receiver and tv control for volume?

I'm a new customer and I have the remote shown.

When I first got the equipment, I could control the receiver's volume with the + / - volume control. (This made the overall volume louder than just my TV remote did solo.)

I programmed the remote to control my TV successfully, but now I can't find any way to modify the receiver's volume.

Is there a way to toggle between TV and Receiver control?

If not, is there a way to reset the remote back to default controls?

I see nothing about either option in the provided manual.

    Welcome to the forum @arewar,

    When you program your CATV remote's volume, this is for the TV only, and over-rides the cable box volume. If your TV has an HDMI connection, it runs off the volume from the TV. Depending on the software for your cable box, you can adjust how you want your sound to come out of the TV. Assuming you don't have a separate sound system, you would want your audio range to be set to "Normal" and your output to be set to "Fixed."

    On your TV sound settings, look in your setting for an option that says "Amplify." That sound makes the TV volume louder. I am not sure how to reset the remote to factory defaults. Even if you did that, an HDMI output will typically default audio to the TV volume.
