I would have to guess, that is probably not the correct remote. I feel I must inform you, trying to upgrade your firmware, from an unsavory hacker, can turn your unit into a brick(doorstop). IMO, proceed with caution.
Unplug the power cord of the Sony Blu-ray player. Plug the power cord back in. Turn on the Sony Blu-ray player. Turn on the TV to which the Sony Blu-ray player is attached. Wait for the "No Disc" text to appear on the front of the Sony's LCD display and on the TV's screen.
Press the "Eject" button on the remote control. Wait for the disc tray to eject itself from the front of the Sony Blu-ray player.
Press the "Disc Info" button on the remote control. Look for a number to appear on one of the upper corners of the screen of the TV.
Press the "Disc Info" button repeatedly until the number "9" appears on the TV's screen. This number indicates that the Sony Blu-ray player is now set for "multi-region" and will play any Blu-ray disc that is commercially made.
Turn the Sony Blu-ray player off using the remote control. Turn the Sony Blu-ray player back on using the remote control. Press the "Eject" button on the remote control to close the disc tray. Turn the Sony Blu-ray player off using the remote control.
I know of a Sony brand learning remote that will do it but, it sells at Target for $29.99. I have 2 of them and works great for all equipment however, the problem with that is that you actually need the original remote to assign keys or buttons on this one. It does have factory settings for various Sony equipment programmed from the factory. I'm looking in the manual now to see if that player is listed. I can't find the actual model but, there are several Sony model surround amps that it will operate with the code listed. This remote is only a couple of years old and runs all my oddball stuff I couldn't get remotes or codes for. Sony models usually have settings for their own stuff built in. The remote is called a RM-VL610 Integrated Remote Commander if you're interested in trying it. It works my old Sony stereo 60 cd changer unit with no problems. This could help unless you order the original remote in which I can help find if you need but, would probably cost more.
There are 2 set's of command switch's for the dvd player, a 3 position command switch on the back side of the dvd player and another 3 position command switch on the inside of the remote right next to the batteries, easiest option is to remove batteries from remote and test each one of the 3 position switch's labeled 1,2 & 3 and test remote control.
Since the design age between the DirecTV controller and your new player is probably 3-5 years, it is unlikely that any code exists in that remote.
Even 'learning' remotes do not learn from every original one.
You might check your satellite provider's website to see if there is any new codes listed that would give you minimal control over your player.
In case you go shopping for a new 'universal' remote, note mfr.s & model numbers and check those websites to see if they truly will do the job; most will not.
Unlike low-end hi-fi systems where you buy one box that does everything, the CD player you have is part of a component hi-fi system (i.e. you buy your CD player, tuner, amplifer etc. as separate items.) This is why there is no volume control. It needs to be connected to an amplifer. It's on the amp that you will find the volume control and where you connect the speakers. (When you connect it to your television, you are just using that amp in the TV instead.)
The CD player did originally ship with a remote control, but I don't know where you would be able to buy one on its own. You may find the the remote does allow you to alter the output level of the CD player, but you still need to connect it to a proper amp to get it to work.
