How to program a new Directv remote to Directv receiver
I bought a RC66RX Directv remote to replace the original model I have now. It is the correct replacement model. I have a HR24-500 DVR receiver connected to a Sony flat screen TV. The receiver is set to RF and the TV is set to IR. I can’t get the new remote to control the receiver. Since they are both Directv pieces of equipment, I thought it would work directly out of the box. Searching and trying different methods to program it from the Internet has been fruitless. Can someone help me with the procedure to get the Directv remote to work with the Directv receiver, then with the Sony?
