What receivers can I control remotely while using the DIRECTV™ Tablet App in my home network?
Remote control requires receiver models HR20, HR21, R22, HR23, HR24, HR44 and H21, H23, H24, and H25. To verify your receiver's model, look under the front panel door of the box, where the red reset switch and access card are. You can also press and hold down the INFO button on your remote for a few seconds until the Info & Test screen appears. You'll see your receiver's model number in the "Receiver" line.
If you don't have any of the receivers listed above, you can use the app as an online guide and browse through channels and programming.
