    What? I just corrected you. As I said, you use the TV off button to turn both the reciever off and the TV off, not the pwr button. The pwr button only turns off your selected device. Sorry if I sounded like I was flaming you.

    This thread reminds me of the story about the blind men trying to describe an elephant. Obviously some of us have TV's that the remote can control with the right-hand buttons and some don't, and then some of us - like me - have both. And maybe some of us don't even have the same model remote!

    Purchase? If the old one doesn't work as advertised, I should get a new one for free!

    I don't know why but the other thing that I have different on in my living rooom setup (where the tv on/off doesn't work) is the stereo volume is linked to all modes where the other 2 r15 are linked to the TV. So you may want to try reprograming you remote to work with the TV volume in all modes or try defaulting the remote.

    (more from the manual, page 26 of the pdf)

    "Once your remote is programmed to work with your TV, the VOL and MUTE key control the TV regardless of the slide switch position. If you would like to change the VOL and MUTE to work with another component, you can. Simply set up your remote to work with the component, and then move the slide switch to the position you would like to lock the VOL and MUTE keys to. Point the remote away from your DIRECTV Plus Receiver and press and hold MUTE and SELECT until the light near the slide switch blinks twice (about 5 seconds). Enter 9-9-3. The light will blink twice, indicating the VOL and MUTE are now locked to the chosen component, no matter what position the slide switch is in."

    or this

    "Factory Defaults
    To reset all the functions of the remote control to the factory defaults, follow these steps:
    1) Point the remote away from your DIRECTV Plus Receiver and components. Press and
    hold MUTE and SELECT until the light above the slide switch on the remote fl ashes
    twice (about 5 seconds).
    2) Enter 9-8-1. The light on the remote will fl ash twice, indicating you have cleared AV1,AV2 and TV modes."

    The remote I have has the ->| button, and it does seem a little qwerky at times. I always have the switch set in the D* mode. A couple times it has turned off ONLY the TV using the "TV OFF" button. And at one point it did not control the volume on the TV for a few minutes. I had to move the switch to the TV mode and back, then it operated normally again. Maybe some reliability issues with the new remotes.
