Click your MENU button and scroll down to SYSTEM SETUP and press SELECT. Next, scroll down to the REMOTE selection. Choose IR/RF option and follow the on-screen prompts and instructions.

NOTE: Be sure your DirecTV remote is RF capable (it will have an FCC sticker on the back if it is) and also be sure your R15-500 has an RF remote antenna plugged into it. This antenna and RF Remotes can be ordered on the DirecTV web page http://www.directv.com if you don't have these items.

The remote provided with the R15 is not a RF remote. As ThomasM noted, you need to make sure you have or get an RF capable remote.
