To see your Voice dialogue on your TV screen, you’ll need one of the receivers listed below. (Don’t know your receiver model? Just press and hold the INFO button on your remote until the Info & Test screen appears. Your receiver model appears in the Receiver line.)
• HR24
• HR34
• HR44

Your receiver must be connected to your home Wi-Fi network, and your phone must be joined to the same network. If you have a multiple-room setup using an HR34 or HR44, any TV in this setup can be used with Voice.

To search for shows using Voice search on your phone screen, it doesn’t matter what kind of DIRECTV receiver you have.
