The Universal remote can control up to four devices. These include TVs, sound systems, game consoles or DVD players. Slide the mode switch at the top of your remote to pick the device you want to control (DIRECTV, AV1, AV2, and TV). If you can’t adjust the TV’s volume, you need to program your TV using the steps below before changing the TV’s input source. Heads up:
The DIRECTV remote powers on your TV and controls the volume while watching DIRECTV. To adjust TV settings or access third-party apps, use the remote control that came with your TV.
If you have a Genie remote, follow the steps in Program your DIRECTV remote control-Genie
