How to control volume from the C31 Genie Mini Client
Posted 25 January 2013 - 07:51 PM
I have the HR34 whole home DVR with 3 mini clients around the house. One of them is in my gym hooked up to a computer monitor (not TV). I'm using the AV port from the back of the mini client for piping audio to my Altec Lansing speaker setup. However, I am unable to program the DirecTV remote to control volume from the mini client. I browsed all the makes of audio equipment that the program remote screen displays but have not found anything under "DirecTV". Anyone have a similar setup and could advise how to proceed? Thanks in advance for your help!

Some cable boxes like the Motorolas I used to have with Inisght/Comcast had variable audio ouputs that you could use to control the volume if your TV or speakers didn't have their own volume control, but I don't believe any DirecTV receivers have that option.
