How to reset your DirecTV remote

The simple, easy-to-use DIRECTV remote not only lets you control your TV set and the DIRECTV receiver, but also DVD players and audio receivers. Your Universal Remote can control up to four devices, including TVs, game consoles, DVD players, and more. This way, instead of keeping up with multiple remotes for multiple devices, you can easily control all of your devices with one remote.
