Hi @Anderson4200,

Your tablet or phone must be connected to the same WiFi network as your receiver and wireless router. Then, follow these steps:

Connect the DIRECTV App to your TV
  1. Open the DIRECTV app on your mobile device.
  2. Tap Browse for TV.
  3. From the main menu, select Receiver in the Receiver Control section. This will bring up a list of receivers that are connected to your home network and are eligible for control.
