Launch the DIRECTV App. If you don't have the DIRECTV app installed, download it here.

Step1

Once the DIRECTV app is launched, tap the Remote icon in the upper right corner.

Step2

Tap Remote. You'll have access to most of the button commands found on your DIRECTV remote control, as well as additional commands such as slow motion.

Step3

You also have the ability to change the remote mode to a mini remote, which gives you access to primary DVR controls.

Please note: To use this feature your device must be joined to the same Wi-Fi network that your receiver is connected to.
