Directv universal remote malfunction

When i try to enter a channel number on the keypad, the light at the top flashes 5 times, not the usual 2 times. While it is flashing, i can't enter any additional numbers, so there is no way to get a channel number over 9. Just last month, directv replaced the remote for my other tv for the same reason. that was a model RC32, they replaced it with model RC64. These remotes are only 18 months old. Are all these models defective? I tried removing the baztteries and resetting, no help.

I hate to say it's unlikely that a "Universal" remote from DirectTV has compatibility with every system and manufacturer. However, my directTV model remote (and there are numerous ones) has a search function with which you don't need to enter a code... it finds one for you. If the control documentation doesn't mention such an option (Code Find), then I'd say your SOL. I'd recommend a Universal Remote made for no specific purpose but to be a UR... using a system included UR never comes off very well.

SOURCE: unable to program Directv universal remote for tv

The RC64RB has more codes in it. Unfortunately, it is an extra $25. BUT, it is backlit, which is very cool at night. With my RC64RB, I get 16 codes to enter for your TV (Emerson HDTV).

SOURCE: Disassemble DirecTV RC32 remote to fix sticky buttons

The solution posted by GP49 was very helpful. A few things to add would be the light gray oval pannel that surrounds the yellow "select" button is not easly pryed up unless you try it from the sides near the "guide" or "exit" buttons.

Once all of the screws are removed, there is a tab on each side of the remote where the top of the remote (the white part) meets the bottom (the black part). The tabs would be about where the 4 and 6 buttons are.

Direct tv remote rc64 how to program sdtv magnovox box


In order to program a Directv remote you slide the switch at the top to tv, hold down the mute and select button at the same time until the indicator light at the top of the remote flashes twice. Then you enter a 5 digit code. If you go to the directv website http://www.directv.com/DTVAPP/global/contentPageIF.jsp?assetId=P4380036#h:620.315
and put in the brand and model of your tv, it should show you what code to use.

I m trying to program my RC64 remote for Direct TV and as soon as I press the mute/select buttons in order to put in the codes it says that my remote isn't programed for the TV yet so I cannot press that...


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. :)
