Question about RCA DIRECTV Satellite Remote Control
I am using an rca DRD515RB Sat box and purchased two new RC64 Remote. The remote works with ir but the rf activation process does not make it all the way through. Mute/select gets the 2 flashes but after entering 961 I get one slightly longer flash and after 'up Chan' the green just stays on as long as I hold the button. It appears that it never likes the 961 code. Fwiw the 981 code does get 4 flashes. The problem is exactly the same on both new units. I am guessing that perhaps the manual is wrong? Thanks in advance for your help.

The manual for the DirectTV RC64 remote that I have does not show a 9-6-1 code anywhere. There is a 9-6-0 to set a button on the remote to match the TV's source function. The manual for this is here: http://www.directv.com/learn/pdf/Remote_Controls/DIRECTVRC64forWeb.pdf . There is a RC64RB remote that does have the RF transmitter and uses the 9-6-1 code to set it. See https://www.att.com/ecms/dam/att/consumer/help/2016/directv/pdf/RC_64RB_Universal_Remote_Control_User_Guide.pdf . Except for E-Bay, the only site with the RC64RB replacement remote in stock is Replacement Remotes, https://www.replacementremotes.com/directv/buy-rc64rb-jets-rc64rb-satellite-receiver-remote-control .
I suspect you have the RC64 remotes that do not have the RF transmitter. I wish that I had better news for you.

If your remote RF was working when new, works correctly when it is pointed directly at the RF command center, but not from a different location, I suggest you check for CFL (compact fluorescent lights).
It is a know issue that certain CFL bulbs produce RF frequencies that may interfere with remote controls.
Also from the owner's manual.......
Optimizing IR/RF Command Center Reception
Here are some adjustment tips for optimizing the operation of your
IR/RF Command Center:
• Aim the URC-9910 remote control toward the room where the
IR/RF Command Center is located.
• Do not position the IR/RF Command Center near metal objects,
such as heat ducts.Metal can absorb RF signals.
• Make sure the batteries in the URC-9910 remote control are fully
charged.Try replacing them if you are not sure (see Installing
Batteries on page 4).Weak batteries will affect the single range.
• Make sure that the URC-9910 remote control is not being affected
by other RF transmissions (e.g., garage door openers, cordless
NOTE: The tests for range limits of the URC-9910 remote control and the
IR/RF Command Center were conducted in open-air distance tests.Actual
signal distance will be based on the construction of the building the unit is
being used in, as well as other factors, such as outside interference.
Also as suggested, you may have to move the RF command center to another location.
If all else fails, your command center may be faulty, and have to be repaired or replaced.
An auction site may be the only replacement option for this discontinued remote.
Best wishes, Greg
