    Hi all! I am new to the forum so if this has been discussed previously let me apologize in advance.

    I just received a Samsung UN46f6400 TV that I have in an upstairs office. Downstairs I have an DirecTV HR-34 DVR. I have RVU enabled on the new Samsung. I would like to know how I can use the DirecTV remote to control the DVR functions, if possible. Despite programming the DirecTV remote to control the Samsung, all I can get the DirecTV remote to do is power on/off, raise & lower the volume, and access the Samsung menu. Selecting "List" on the DirecTV remote does nothing. This is true if the slider is to the left or the right.

    I'd appreciate input.

    Thank you,
    Scott

    I don't think you can use the old white remote to control the RVU part of the TV. you can use the Samsung Remote or get an RC71

    Got the RC71. Works pretty well but I do miss the "stop" button not being there. Thanks all!

    From my read on this site, that has to be the number one complaint of the RC71 remote. Maybe someday when the next model comes along, we can have a Stop button again. I miss it too.
