The Direct TV remote has to be programmed properly. See the user manual for the process. The problem is, the user manual tells you to enter a code for the TV, but gives you a long list of codes that may work. So it's simply a problem of trial and error. For me, the first code in the list gave me the same results that you got (having to press volume repeatedly). But when I programmed the 2nd code in the list, pressing and holding the volume worked!.
I can't guarantee it, but I suspect you'll have the same result.

32459 is what worked for me on the RC65. Note that the power button doesn't work, but volume and mute will. If you use the on-screen programming instructions, ignore the instruction to test the code using the PWR button on the remote. Instead, test the code using the Volume UP (+) button to see if the volume increases.
Hi, I work for Directv in the technical department... it is normal for the error message you listed to display on the tv when programming the remote. All you have to do is completely ignore whatever it says on the screen and just complete the remote programming process. I will summarize the instructions for you: First, press and hold mute and select until the green light above the mode switch on the REMOTE flashes twice(can take about 5 seconds of holding down before the green light flashes), then enter your 5 digit code using the keypad on the remote(no matter what it says on the screen-still ignore), after entering the code the green light should immediately flash twice again(that confirms the code was entered correctly), once that happens try pressing the volume up button on the remote, if volume bar displays on the screen increasing the volume then that is the correct code. Once that is all done and volume then works from directv remote slide the mode switch on remote back over to the left under DTV symbol and use remote as normal. Once you change channels or pretty much press any button on remote that is Directv related the error messages will disappear. I usually just press the exit button on the remote in irectv mode to clear the error messages. Hope this helps. :)

PaulTulsa is actually incorrect, Directv remotes do allow this function. I had this problem too... but was able to fix it. You have to go back into the system settings menu. Depending on your receiver (I have the hr21-100) press "Menu" then scroll to "Parental, Fav's & Setup" then "Sytem Setup" then "Remote" then select "Program Remote". Scroll to "TV" then select the brand name (I also have a Samsun tv). Follow the directions to change the code of the remote and manually go through the codes they have posted. The second one worked for me. Good luck.
Try this: On the Tivo remote press and hold the TV Power button and the Directv/TIVO button at the same time. Hold both buttons down for about 4 seconds or until remote light stays red. Then press the channel up button until the tv turns off. You may press the button over 100 times. You need to go slow. When the TV turns off press the enter button (or select button).
