Happened to find out that you can use a RC71 model remote control with Samsung and Sony TV's that support being an RVU client.
To program a RC71 for a Samsung TV RVU client press MUTE+SELECT then enter 54000.
To program a RC71 for a Sony TV RVU client press MUTE+SELECT then enter 54001.
If you've been looking for a chart that shows what functions on the native TV support which DIRECTV function:
I tried the RC71 with my Samsung UN40ES6100 and it works just like the RC71 does with the DIRECTV client. Finally it's nice to have a remote that functions with this TV for DIRECTV since frankly trying to use the Samsung's TV remote for RVU functions was a real PITA.
Also came across this page, http://support.direc...etail/a_id/3992
which lists all the current RVU TV's that DIRECTV has authorized to work with the GENIE's.
