There are unfortunately no manual controls on the Cinemate console- as it is designed to be operated exclusively from the Bose remote. That said, you mentioned something about "universe connected by my tv remote", and I'm not sure what that means. Are you saying the Vizio remote used to turn the Bose on and off and control volume as well? If so, that's not likely as Vizio does not make remote's with universal capability. You may have simply been raising/powering the TV's volume which in turn fed the Bose that signal. However since you've lost the remote and there are no buttons on the console, the only solution here is to purchase the original Bose Cinemate 120 remote as it is not functional without it. I'm pulling up a link to that remote right now.
