My Direct TV RC64R remote won't work

I need instructions to set up this remote with a Direct TV HD DVR Model HR21-100. It is new and was working fine until I tried to enter codes for my Vizio TV.

    Press and hold the MUTE and SELECT keys at the same time until the green light flashes twice, then release both keys. Using the number keys, enter 9 8 1 (The green light flashes 4 times). The remote should now be restored to the original factory settings and work properly.

    I went throught the same steps... the lights flashed as indicated but still didn't work.

    Any thoughts?

    I have no problem setting up the TV with the RC64R remote. However, I cannot get the remote to work with the receiver. This was just set up today by DirecTV. I'm the kind that looks for the solution before contacting tech support. According to the code book, the code is 00001 and 00002. Neither works though. I tried the factory default and that did not work either. I took away the tv settings.

Go to reciever menu and remote set up then go to rf or ir mode then switch to ir mode. if that don't work try the rf mode. sometimes the reciever and remote reset for some crazy reasons. it's happened to me twice . the first time was ready to thro away till i tried this!

Use the menu on the receiver to get to tv remote programming. Go to codes for a GOLDSTAR tv. The first codes will give you basic functions. As for using the proper Vizio codes, I don't know. I can't get my RC64r to work with the vizio codes....

Try these instructions and see if they work for your genie remote.

First, have your Genie Mini receiver connected and powered on. Next, grab your RC71 remote and simultaneously hold the "MUTE" + "ENTER" buttons until you see a box appear on your TV screen that says "Applying IR/RF Setup. Please Wait" (this appears after about 5 seconds of holding those buttons). Once complete another dialog box will appear and read, "Your remote is now setup for RF." Click "SELECT" to exit that screen. Next, click the "MENU" button, scroll down to "Settings & Help", then click on "Settings", scroll down to and click on "Remote Control", then click "Program Remote". Next you will have two options, either "Program TV" or "Program Audio Device". Click "Program TV", this takes you to a screen where you need to select what BRAND your TV is. After you have selected your TV brand you will have to select the TV Model ( I recommend looking at the sticker on the back of your TV for the accurate Model number or using your current TV remote to find the model number from the menu screen on your TV for fastest and best results). Once the correct model number is selected, AIM your RC71 remote at the TV and it will AUTOMATICALLY program!

    New RC64 will NOT setup with R16-500 Direct TV DVR

    The Direct TV remote control I'm currently using is a RC64RB I guess the RB stands for radio broadcast? I learned from researching on the internet that the Direct TV DVR receiver has a different setting for each type of remote. The "RB" remote (the one I'm currently using) has an FCC sticker on the back. Direct TV sent me the wrong type of remote control. AND they have wasted hours of my time. The DT technician that I sought answers from is an idiot!!

    I have new Polaroid TV/DVD combo & need code for my dish remote

    Dish remotes generally will not program to combo units. There are a few exceptions but if you have already performed a power scan and have not had sucess you have one of the units that will not work. Dish is introducing a new receiver called a 222k which has a learning remote to prevent these types of issues. The 222k is a HD dussl tuner NON dvr receiver.It also has an expansion port that will allow a external hard drive to be connected to it which will allow the receiver to behave as a DVR unit but with added benefits an internal DVR model lacks.
    Hope this answered your question and thanks for using FIx Ya. Let me know if I can be of further assistance.

    Direct TV DVR Receiver R15 Code

    Try using the remote's "search" feature. If that doesn't work then it's probably not compatible.
