Remote for DTV and fire tv

Is it possible to use only the DTV remote to control DTV and a Toshiba fire TV? I purchased a new TV for my elderly mother and using 1 remote to change DTV channels and the other for volume will confuse her.

You need to reprogram the remote to the new TV.   https://www.directhd.tv/how-to-program-a-directv-remote/

Yes you can easily do that by just reprogramming DirecTV remote to your new Toshiba fire TV by using the following code: 54002

I can you need to reset the remote:

First off, Press ‘Menu’

Select ‘Settings and Help’

Next click on ‘Settings’, then ‘Remote Control’

Then make sure ‘Reset Remote’ is highlighted.
