I tried to move my Directv boxes around while rearranging the house (3 wireless receivers and 1 main reciever). I tried to move the main receiver into the den, but I found out after the fact that I could not move a hardlined receiver to another room without help. I moved everything back. Now the box in the den cuts in and out constantly. The remote also stopped working. I moved the wireless receiver to another room to see if it was the cord or the tv. It works fine in the other room, but the remote still does not work. How can I get the remote to talk to the receiver again?

Try resynchronizing the remote by pressing the MUTE + ENTER keys for a few seconds.

That worked!! Thank you!! Also, I think the cutting in and out may be due to a bad HDMI cord, so I am getting a new one tomorrow to test that theory.

If the remote will not respond after that step then try this. First verify you have a RC71/72/73 Genie remote, that is what that step is for. If so then proceed to hold the number one down if the light stays green the batteries are good and you can move on. Hold the mute and select down until the light on the remote blinks two times and enter 981, this resets the remote, then hold the mute ans select down again following the double blink with 987, applies IR mode. Now we go back to hold the mute and enter buttons until the lights on the remote flash repeatedly. Try and change channel. If it is succesful then push the volume buton and follow the onscreen directins to program the tv to the remote. If not then try to reset the receiver, there are times the IR sensor does not respond. If these steps do not resolve call customer service for possible replacement or service call.

@Vita522, best to start your own new thread. Besides your remote model number, it would be helpful to know your DVR/Receiver model number and what troubleshooting you've already tried.

@Vita522, thanks for that additional info. I assume you mean "C41" Mini Genie? There is not "C47" model.
Anyway, that's the wrong remote for the C41 Mini Genie. You should be using an RC72 or RC73 remote model.

Thank you! It works right away.
I played around with remote setup, then it stopped working. But this solution works right away!
