What model of remote do you have? What model of receiver?

Nope, we need to know the EXACT model of both the DirecTV remote and receiver

Jamie,

On the remote, in the upper left corner, is a model number such as RC71.  Then, on the receiver, in the lower right corner is a small card door.  Inside that door is a model number, such as HR24.  Those are the two numbers we need.

Actually you don't need any of that. Slide the switch on the remote to TV. Hold both mute and select until the light blinks twice then press "11758"then select again and then the remote works for a vizio TV. I set these remotes up for customers everyday

Of course that works assuming the OP has an RC65/66 remote, it won't work if the OP has an RC71, thus the reason to ask for the model number of the remote
