You will need control codes for you to program your Direct Receiver remote. Turn on the TV and press and hold the MUTE button. Hold on the Mute button and press and hold the SELECT button until the green light flashes twice. You will then enter the TV code and then press PWR button and the TV will turn off. The TV should be able to turn back on and the remote will be confirmed. Check out http://support.directv.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/1343/~/remote-control-programming-steps for more directions.
