I've programmed this remote to control a DVD player (AV2 key). However, certain keys only work in DIRECTV mode (eg LIST, GUIDE, BACK, etc).

Is there a code I can enter to allow use of these keys?

Nope, sorry, there are only certain keys that will work in those modes and these are not among them.

I'm curious though, why would you need those keys to work in DVD mode? I can see "BACK" maybe but the others?

A lot of people around here like the Harmony line of remotes for more specific needs.

Support for DVD players and such is very limited; generally only the transport buttons work.

There's a reason why Logitech Harmony remotes sell so well... :)

I have an Extender that connects to my PC to play files. It allows you to use just about any remote to control it.

Thanks
