Re: I would like to program my remote to work my tivo.
If you go to the options menu on the directv, it will give you the proper codes to fix this problem. Also any components you have will always come with a manual that will have a code so you can use a universal remote.

Oh boy. here is the problem. i have also a 106240 IR/UHF receiver/transmitter that changes the channels in the satellite box from another room so i can watch them in a second tv at channel 4. the original remote for the 106240 is broken and i bought another UHF remote #153638. So i need to program the new remote to work and link with the 106240 receiver, NOT the satellite box or the tv. Is there any expert here to enlighten us how can be done ? Very simple question :how to program the remote 153638 to link with the 106240. Thank you in advance
Try this: Press and hold the TV Power button and the Dirctv/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).
You should be able to go to the tivo menu and push Messages and
Settings, followed by Settings, and finally Remote Control. Then
follow the directions on the screen. You normally would program volume
and mute, power, and tv input. It will walk you through the
manufacturers and give you the codes to try.
If the codes do not work, it is possible that Tivo does not have the
codes for the TV yet, but I would first make sure that you have the
most recent version of the Tivo operating system (force a network
connection a few times).
Set up your infrared blasters connected from your IR port on the Tivo and by placing the two lead lights in front of your cable box so it (the cable box) can read the signal. Then go to Channel settings accessed through Tivo Central and follow the questions. It will ask you to change channels until the remote is working correctly. This all worked on a different "input" on my Mitsubishi TV (it has multiple inputs. I have the cable input on a different "input" to make it work.
Hope this helps. Call TIVO tech assistance because they are the ones who talked me through this.
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).
