    On most smart TVs you can pair the YouTube app to your mobile devices. That allows you to find a video on your phone and set the TV as the the output. So you're not fumbling around trying to search with the TV remote. You can also add a video to your playlist on your phone so you have it saved, then watch it later and set the TV as the output. Is there any way to pair a mobile device to the YouTube app in Directv's HD DVR receivers?

    I know it isn't what you specifically want but if you get a Chromecast ($35.00) then you can find a YouTube video on your phone using the YouTube app, then "cast it" to your tv. That's what I do.

    Chromecast is pretty cool. My son has one and we watched a Netflix last Sunday in HD, sweet.
