• 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.
