Programming RC73 Remote
I recently switched to Direct TV from DISH. My old Panasonic Home Theater system worked fine with the RC73 Remote. I was able to control my box, TV and audio system at first. I recently got a new Onkyo audio system and the code isn't listed for my particular model. There are dozens of models list from Onkyo, just not mine. I found the code online, but there is no way to enter it manually.
I called Tech Support and they told me the Genie Remotes (RC73) cannot be manually programmed to handle other devices, so I need to use the audio remote or get a universal remote. Is this true? I hope not, Direct TV already has a million things worse than DISH Network, they don't need one more.....
