When I use my DIRECTV app to schedule a recording, how can I tell which receiver I'm programming?


You can name your receivers online so they'll be easy to identify:

  • Sign in to your DIRECTV account.
  • If you are already signed in, place your mouse over "My Account" above the main navigation and select "My Equipment"
  • You'll see the receivers you have in your DIRECTV® System and their location
  • Click the location link to change it. It may take a few hours for the changes to appear in the DIRECTV app
