DIRECTV Universal Remote


The DIRECTV universal remote can control up to four devices, such as your TV, HD DVR, DVD player, and audio receivers.

Here’s a list of a few things that your DIRECTV remote can do:

  • Equipment controls: Use the Mode Switch to control different devices.
  • DVR controls: If you have a DIRECTV DVR, you can use these controls to pause live TV, record a program, and rewind or fast-forward recorded shows. Go to www.directv.com/dvr for more details.
  • Navigation buttons: These allow you to move around the program guide and various on-screen menus.
  • Keypad: Use the numbers to type a channel number directly.

For more information on how to use your DIRECTV universal remote, watch the video or view our Interactive Remote Guide.
