    My remote is the typos that is UHF not IR. It sends multiple signals causing it to skip around on the guide like crazy. It makes it almost impossible to use the guide. I have had to go up and use the control on the receiver to pick programs that I have recorded. Does anyone have a fix for this or do I need to get a new UHF remote?

    I don't know of any DirecTV remote [RCxx] that isn't IR.
    All of my "RF" remotes have an IR option by default, and I need to change them to RF.

    What is the actual model number of the remote that you are using ?
    And the receiver model number ?
    Are you using RF mode ?
    Have you tried resetting the receiver ? Lots of times it is the receiver's problem and not the remote.
