The Genie Remote lets users control their TV and any connected audio devices or players. Before programming one, you need to ensure that the remote is in RF mode. For that, press and hold the MUTE and ENTER buttons, and point the remote at the DVR. This is working if the screen shows a message that says Applying IR/RF setup.

To do this, follow the same steps as for programming a DirecTV Universal Remote with a DirecTV Universal Remote.

Programming The Genie Remote To Control A DirecTV Ready TV

  • Turn on the TV.

If you need additional codes, use the Remote Control Code Lookup tool and set devices to your viewing preference. For the model number, check the upper left corner of the front of your remote.
