Question about RCA DIRECTV Satellite Remote Control
I just got DTV. The remotes (mostly Toshiba combo TV's) don't turn off both the receiver and tv with one button. I have to slide the selector to "direct tv" to power satellite reception on/off and I have to slide it to TV and hit the PWR button to turn on/off the TV.
In the first scenario (powerind down the satellite receiver), the TV screen goes blank and leaves the TV on but in Line 1, Game mode, etc until I manually push the power button or select TV on the slider and then hit PWR. Help me!!!

You must first find out why the remote control is not working properly. These remote controls have been having problems with new batteries. The battery holder on the positive side need to be adjusted out to make sure its making contact with the batteries. This may be the reason the remote control is not working. After you find the problem with the functioning of the remote control you can go to the RCA customer support website http://voxrightnow.custhelp.com/cgi-bin/voxrightnow.cfg/php/enduser/std_adp.php?p_faqid=1769&p_created=1209688350&p_sid=6-sdxLAj&p_accessibility=0&p_redirect=&p_lva=&p_sp=cF9zcmNoPTEmcF9zb3J0X2J5PSZwX2dyaWRzb3J0PSZwX3Jvd19jbnQ9ODE4LDgxOCZwX3Byb2RzPTE1OCZwX2NhdHM9MCZwX3B2PTEuMTU4JnBfY3Y9JnBfc2VhcmNoX3R5cGU9YW5zd2Vycy5zZWFyY2hfbmwmcF9wYWdlPTEmcF9zZWFyY2hfdGV4dD1yY2Egc3lzdGVtIDUgcmVtb3RlIGNvbnRyb2w*&p_li=&p_topview=1 find the codes for the components you want to use with the remote control. Use the codes to make the remote operational . This should be all you have to, if the remote control is working properly. If you cannot get the remote control to work properly, you can call the RCA customer support at this telephone number 1-800-645-4994. Give them the model number of the remote control and ask them for assistance with the problem. I hope this information help you with the problem you are having with your remote control.

Link to the manual
Problem: The remote is not
performing commands properly.
• You must put the remote in the
correct mode by pressing the
corresponding component key (TV,
VCR, DVD, SAT, AUX1, AUX2) so
the remote knows which component
you want to operate.
• Make sure the component is “ready”
(e.g., DVD player has disc loaded;
VCR has tape loaded, etc.).
• You may have pressed an invalid
key for the mode the remote is in
(e.g., the RECORD key only works
in VCR Mode).
• If you are trying to turn on an RCA,
GE or PROSCAN component, press
the component key (TV, VCR, DVD,
SAT, AUX1, AUX2) instead of the
• If you’re trying to change channels,
try pressing the OK key after
entering the channel number as this
is a requirement of certain models
*There is a possibility that a
programmed code may only be able
to control some of your component
features (e.g., only turns a
component on and off). Follow the
steps provided for programming the
remote (See Programming sections
on pages 5–7). If the component can
be turned on and off, make sure you
press the CH+/CH- key to see if the
component responds. If not, try the
next code from the list.
Good Luck :)

I am not sure what model remote you have so I could not give you a direct link to it. But the link below will take you to Direct TV remote manuals page. Just scroll down and click the manual in the right side column that corresponds to your remote and download the manual. It's in pdf. format so you will need the free adobe reader to view it if you don't already have it.
Just in case you have the remote in the image included with your post (the D770 I think), I included the link to the manual for that model as well
I hope this helps. Please let me know if you need anything more.
