Remote will not program

Remote stopped working yesterday. Put new batteries in. Still not working.  As per Help on the menu.  I held down the mute and select keys still not working.   I cannot turn it completely off. The screen goes black then a message comes on “no signa check the external input or select another input using the INPUT button”.     I cannot change channels , volume or pause HELPl

Hey, @jalbright. We'd be glad to help you program your remote.


You may want to try walking through our DIRECTV Remote Troubleshooting article for a list of steps to try for both your receiver and remote. 


Give that a try and let us know how it goes!
