Remote Won't Operate Yamaha Receiverl531
Posted 20 December 2008 - 03:01 PM
I called DTV, and the SR gave me several more codes to try. I did so without success. They said I will need to use the Yamaha remote or buy an aftermarket one. Ironically, the Yamaha remote can't be programmed to operate the DTV receiver.
Any way to solve this?

DirecTV's remotes are NOT "learning" remotes; they rely on codesets being programmed into the onboard chip during manufacturing. All they know is what they know, and they can't learn anything else, so when a manufacturer changes remote codes, you're stuck. Either you use the factory remote or you buy a learning remote.
DirecTV has updated/added to the codeset with each version of the remote (RC16, RC32, RC64), so the RC64 series will have the biggest and most up-to-date code set, but new equipment comes out all the time with new codesets that aren't supported.
