      In regards to changing channels and having the DirecTV buttons work with the yamaha remote, no, nothing that I am aware of because the Yamaha remote is not a universal remote. The DirecTV is a universal remote in that it can control other devices.

      Thanks for the comment!

      My first Directv remote worked with my Yamaha receiver. When the remote broke, the replacement would not work with any of the codes provided by Directv. Their tech support said there were no other codes or ways to make it compatible. It made no sense since the old remote worked fine. They insisted it couldn’t be done. This simple code and instructions shows what uncaring clowns Directv support is. A huge thank you for providing this information! I knew it had to be simple. Directv is simple in a different way, a stupid uncaring way.

        Thank you so much for your kind words. I knew this would help someone out over the years. I too was struggling to get a solid answer for this when I had my Yamaha receiver, and finally was able to figure it out and wanted to document it so others did not have to struggle as hard I had to do.

    Tried the code following the instructions and it worked great. After having to use 2 remotes for the last 2 years, calling Direct TV for support etc. I can finally use the universal remote with my Yamaha receiver. I was just about to buy another Denon Receiver just so I didn’t have to use 2 remotes. Thanks for this indispensable information.
