Question about Samsung SIR-TS160 DirecTV DTV Receiver

Receiver will not respond from imputs from the TS160 remote

Receiver will not respond from imputes from the remote such as turning off or on, changing channels or other functions. Tried other same type remotes with no results. Ironically, a remote for a TS-360 receiver works!

Re: Receiver will not respond from imputs from the TS160...

You are probably using a non-oem remote or one that is from another receiver, not the one that originaly came with the unit.

You should try to get one with the factory remote and not try to save a few bucks.

Maybe a neighbor has complete unit you could get for a reasonable price.

I have a Motorola DCT6200 DTV Receiver and the remote I am using for the device is not responding. I can still turn off my physical TV with the remote, and can still change channels on the Receiver itself,...

wrong mode!!!!!
put your remote back in cable mode and you will be back to normal.
usually up near top sometimes push "mode" then "cbl" sometimes just push "cable"

good description of problem, I can tell your a thinker.
99% sure this is your problem though

good luck

Probles with dual screens on sat. receivers

if both receivers are plug into their own inputs on the back of the television, go into the remote set up screen and program the av1 or av2 as a seperate receiver. this will all the remote to send a different signal to the receivers so they wont change at the same time.
