cant program my Yamaha RX797 Receiver to my Direct TV remote
2 months ago
We'd love to help program your DIRECTV remote control to your receiver, @userferguson.
Are you using a universal remote control or a Genie remote control? What model is your Directv remote control? The model number is always printed in the upper left corner of your remote control.
To get started, please use the Remote Control Code Lookup to check the correct code for your remote control. Select the Directv remote control and then Add New TV or Add New Satellite. You can also view this article to get tips on how to program your Universal Remote Control.
Let us know if you need anything else!

@ATTHelp Rec Room has Regular DVR with RC66RX remote (Genie used in another room) This is my Yamaha RX797, remote will work on RAX100, WF68870, RX497 None of the models are on the Direct TV Yamaha List of 1159 different models, after allowing my remote to search 30, I said screw this (Edited per community guidelines), I'm not sitting thru 1129 more test, this could take days if not a week or more... What Direct TV Model Number Yamaha Receiver that you do have listed will work my Receiver?
If you were unable to find a working code for your device, @userferguson, you can perform a code search. The process may take up to 30 minutes.
Note: If the light flashes 3 times, you've cycled through all codes and the code for your device was not found. You must use the remote that came with your device.
If you have any additional concerns, please feel free to reach out to us. Thank you for contacting us on AT&T Community Forums!
