DirecTV remote RC73 not pairing with TV
I have been going at this for a few days now. I have a wireless genie, rc73 remote, and all of a sudden it does not control the volume or tv on and off. Only guide, menu and select works.
My remote is currently in IR mode (pointing at) and not RF mode (pointing anywhere), unless I have that backwards, and I am not able to change it to RF mode either. Maybe this is part of the problem.
Ive read similar posts, I’ve reset my remote completely, tried the mute+enter, mute+select, 980 and 981 codes, channel up, enter, and all different variations of these steps. I even found a Sony tv code 54001 from an older thread but that did not work either and I don’t remember having to use a specific tv code to do this. Also from the menu, settings, remote control, I tried doing this all from there per their steps, mute+enter and waiting the 120secs to see if will work and it never does.
After this is when I went to the internet to try and figure this out and saw the different variations or explanations to fix this.
Fresh batteries too.
