How to use remote for a Vizio?

Hi. I have a Vizio, model M470SL. The remote is a Direct TV model RC65X. I have some movies on my external hard drive that I want to watch on my Vizio. I can see and play the movies. The problem is that when I go to full screen to watch the video, I can't go back to the menu screen. I can't exit full screen. I can only pause and that's it. None of the other buttons work. If I press Exit, then it closes the whole media section, and I go back to regular TV.

After I have a movie in full screen, how can I go back to the menu? Thanks.

You might want to pst this question on the Vizio support forums as this is not DirecTV related

Is this external hard drive connected to your computer?  If not, where is it connected.  I'm trying to understand if you are using Mediashare to watch these movies?

I connect the hard drive to the TV via USB. From there the TV asks if you want to browse the content. Then it shows a menu of all the movies on the hard drive.

In that event the Directv installation is not involved so I second the Pedsa48 recommendation.
