Directv setup with alexa

Just had my direct tv equipment updated and can't ​get Alexa to control it. I had a dvr with mini genie

Boxes that worked fine with Alexa before. When I enable the FTC skill alexa discovers the new boxes and the old boxes that aren't even in the house. So I tried disabling the old boxes and renaming the new boxes . Alexa says it cant communicate or tv doesn't support it. Thanks for any help. ​
