After you have switched your rec to RF mode do the following on the remote:
A) press and hold MUTE & SELECT, wait for two blinks, release
B) enter 9 6 1
C) press CH UP
D) enter the last 6 digits of the receiver ID #, found on a sticker in the access card compartment
E) press SELECT
After doing this the remotes works perfectly in RF mode.
thinking i didn't need any fancy interface, i ordered two of the standard RC65. they came fast and as described from Westronics thru amazon.
i then tried to get it to control my sound system (Yamaha YSP-3050) using all 23 codes that DirecTV offered. all i could get it to do was turn the Yamaha on/off, but not control things like the volume.
figured i just had the wrong codes, so i called DirecTV and they walked me thru yet another way of finding the right code via an auto-find process. still no luck.
after additional questioning i discovered that the "X" in the name has to do with the way the remote interfaces with other brand systems. the "X" part allows it to both send and receive information. it seems my Yamaha requires two-direction interfacing, so i cannot ever get the RC65 to control the volume.
thus, if you want a remote to be able to do everything that the RC65RX can do, get that remote.
I ordered this product on Dec 2nd, arrived Dec 8th US Postal service.
The remote is identical to my orignal remote. I put two AA baterries in, pressed PWR button and my DTV DVR powered off and back on.
I slid the function switch to TV and pressed the channel up button, and the DTV receiver dispalyed a message to telling me to program the TV functions on the remote. First, using the Channel button, scroll down to find your brand of TV and press the Select button. I have a Visio XVT TV, which had 5 possible codes displayed on the screen, and of course it was the last code listed.
To program the remote, simply hold the mute and select buttons down for about two seconds until the green LED light above the TV label flashes twice, then enter the 5 digit code. Try the volume key, if the code is correct, your volume will change and you are done.
I also discovered that I could program the the TV Input button to scroll through the various available input options on the Visio TV. Since the original remote was never programmed to do this, I did not know it could. This is great as I no longer have to get up and manully select the TV input from the TV control panel when i want to switch between broadcast TV or other inputs.
To do this, after you get the correct TV code programmed, press and hold the mute and select keys down for two seconds gain, and once the LED flashes twice, enter the code "960". Thats it.Read more ›

Our old remote succumbed to a mug of tea. The new one didn't work at all initially, which was disappointing since we'd bought 2 for future spills. Read morePublished 14 days ago by MorganG
