If the tv isn't listed on the on screen controls, you might want to check with Direct TV on getting hold of another remote that can be programmed. Sometimes software update are done to the tuners as well but usually there never done for adding new models to TVs.
One thing I never liked about Direc TV was I always had to update the TV tuners every two years because of new features.

11531 is the code given by DirecTV for this model. To enter this code . . .
1. Slide the mode switch at the top of the remote to the TV position 2. Hold both the MUTE and SELECT buttons until the LED blinks twice 3. Enter the 5-digit code 11531 4. Test the volume and power buttons for correct operation with the TV
If the code does not work first time, try entering the code a couple more times. If it still doesn't work, also try code 11436. DirecTV do not list any other codes for your TV, so if they don't work, it's possible that the remote will not work with your TV. There is also a code search option which tries every code in the remote. If this doesn't work, the remote definitely will not work with your TV.
Please try the codes above and let me know if you need further assistance or the code search instructions. Also, remember to slide the mode switch back to the DirecTV position after you have finished entering the codes.
I dont know which Direct TV remote you have so I couldnt look it up for you but here is a link to all of there remotes and how to get the codes. Just click the link and there are 5 remotes list by there model number choose yours and go from there..
I tried the closest model no. in the Sky list in the system setup, I think the code was 0840. Cover the front of the remote and press TV, then press red & select button until the remote led light blinks twice, key in the code 0840 and then press select. Try the volume button and this should work. If you get stuck go into interactive and system setup and select setup of sky remote and it gives you a list of makes and models, this is the closed one to the LE40A656 and works with mine.
Hope this works for you.
I don't have DTV anymore, so I don't remember the exact code I used for my SK-32H240S, However, I do remember that I found one that worked at this site. Scroll down to locate your remote series # - it most likely will be printed on the upper left corner of the front of the remote - as an example, mine says RC64. Click on the corresponding listing, then follow the directions on the site. I tried only a few codes before finding one that worked correctly. Good luck.
