Don’t let your DirecTV remote intimidate you. Programming it couldn’t be any easier. First press the MENU button on the remote. You will then select “Parental, Favs and Setup.”
Select the option “System Setup” and then hit “Remote.” You will then just need to press the option that says “Program Remote.” Now you are ready to set the remote up for your various devices.
Simply point the remote at the device and follow the instructions on the screen. You will have the remote set up to work your DVD player, TV or other such device in no time.
Programming your white DirecTV remote to your TV is just as simple. First find the control codes for the DirecTV remote. With your TV on slide the mode switch on the top of the remote to “TV.”
Depress the Mute button and hold it down. While holding Mute down, depress the Select button and hold it until a green light on the top of the remote flashes twice.
Now enter the first of TV codes. The green light should flash twice. Point the remote at the television and press the power button. Your television should turn off. If it powers off, try turning it back on. If it works then slide the switch at the top back to DirecTV.
If it doesn’t turn off then simply repeat the steps starting with holding down the Mute button. When you get to the step to enter your code, use the next one on your list.
When the listed codes don’t work, you will have to scan for a working one. Follow the previous steps up to and including holding Mute and Select until the green light flashes twice. Now press 991.
The green light should flash two times. Point the remote at the television and press Channel Up. Keep pressing it slowly until your TV turns off. Once it does simply press and let go of the Select button. You should now be all set.
