    i just bought a new 20.1 IR off eBay for my receiver and am having trouble programming to my tv. All instructions I have seen says to hold down the tv mode button until the other three mode lights light up to put remote in learning mode. I can hold down the tv mode button but the other three lights will not come on. The tv mode light will come on solid but not the other three. Now this remote has 20.1 IR - 180546 on the back just like the old remote but it only takes two triple A batteries whereas the old remote takes four batteries. Is this a newer model remote that has a different way to program it to the tv. HELP PLEASE, Rapid Roy

    When my neighbor got a new TV she had to reprogram her remote. I tried to help her but since I am a DirecTV person and I could not. I had her call Dish and then let me talk to them. They were very good and promptly stepped me thru setting the remote for her.

    Thanks but I asked the seller and they didn’t even know what kind of batteries it takes.
