    R U Playing FOOTBALL with these Remotes???

    KTerry

    My enitre family (Mom & Dad, and their 4 children) became immediate members of DIRECTV the very day that it became available to us in the summer of 1991 at all of our Vacation Homes and all of our Residences. We loved DIRECTV instantly and within 12 months we all had removed all of those 15 ft diameter satellite Receivers and dishes and to the trash they went. Thank the LORD! We had our beautiful yards back!! In these past 19 going on 20 years, NONE OF US have ever had a Remote Control from DIRECTV to BREAK Mid-stream! We have had some issues with the receivers themsleves, but NOT a single one was due to the remote controllers. I am an a Mathematical Science Major and Telecommunications Engineer from UNC-CH! One thing I have always considered to be a PLUS in the technological age is the fact that DIRECTV has kept a version of their original Directv Remote Control that came with it's first model by RCA which was then a BLACK remote with Blue, Red, and Black buttons with white writing with the only MAJOR changes being much LARGER NUMBERS with White Keys with Black, Red, and Blue writing and a white face! Thus this makes it much easier for the technologically challenged generations that are now much older than their 50's!

    A Poorly Designed and Inferior Remote

    Posted
    4veritas

    The remote is not ergonomically designed, with the buttons being unlit, very stiff and difficult to use for anyone with a joint disorder such as arthritis. Unless you hold the remote number keys down just the right amount of time, either the number will not register or it will be repeated (e.g., pressing channel 2 may result in channel 22). However, and unlike all other remotes I've used, holding the up and down arrow key buttons does not result in cycling through a menu; instead you must press the up or down buttons repeatedly to arrive at your selection. Unlike other remotes, this one is not at all forgiving if you do not point it directly at the receiver and TV. It is white and dirties easily. Finally, changing channels is not instantaneous, in fact, not even close, taking 4-11 seconds, although this is probably a function of the receiver.

    does what it is supposed to do

    I bought this because my last remote died after 6 years and because every other remote in the house is of this type. I really don't want to have to teach everyone else how to use a new remote. if you are looking for something to control your DirecTV box and some type of high-end surround sound system, you'd probably be better of using a learning remote geared to your system that can be programmed for the DTV box. You simply can't get "into the weeds" of the settings on the other systems using this device. If you want to watch TV and change channels and volume and press a single button to turn the DTV box and the TV on and off, then get this.

    Flimsy Remotes

    Posted
    Shuppie

    Not a terrible remote, it does what it's supposed to do. BUT the switch on the top that swaps the devices you are switching between is FLIMSY!!! I've had DirecTV for 2 years, and have broken 3 of these things all the same way. The switch on the top breaks, ALWAYS taking the remote out of DTV mode and rendering it useless. I don't even use this switch! It's not that it wears out, it breaks on the first time you move it. I can't imagine how fast it will break if you actually use the switch on a regular basis to control another device(s). If you have kids, do yourself a favor and put some tape over the switch so it doesn't move. As I said, my kids have broken 3 remotes in 2 years just moving the switch.

    Works well, it's a bit pricey.

    For its job, this remote works very well. It controls the DirecTV box and television, just as designed. The button sensitivity is excellent, although as the remote it was replacing was old, that could have just been worn out. The one issue that I had with the remote, was the price. It was at least twice as expensive as the same remote elsewhere. Unfortunately, my old remote had a failure of the IR emitter and I needed to replace the remote immediately. Best Buy had it, the other place was out of stock.

    Directv Remote

    Excellent! Bought one for main room and bedroom, because the one's given by Directv are of course "JUNK"! They gave me 2 remotes when I started service, 1 week later their remote stopped working, I returned it and they sent me a replacement which lasted for 3 days. I decided my own equipment would be better so I purchased This remote plus another model ( same thing) from Best Buy. It is very durable easy to use and handles all features for Directv main counsel and Genie. It is worth the price paid, because if the Directv remote given goes out you are stuck for no less than 6 business days for a replacement.

    Does not control LG Smart TV

    The Direct TV Remote worked as expected with the satellite box but I could not find a TV code for our LG Smart TV. The procedure provided to find a useable code was impossible to implement. I had bought the same remote 2 yrs ago. The select button quit working causing me to buy the new unit. Neither unit had any codes for LG TVs. And, neither unit would allow me to search for useable codes (even though both provided a procedure for doing so. I got a new controller directly from Direct TV and it works perfectly with the satellite box.

    Standard Directv Remote

    This is the same remote that came with both of my Directv receivers 3 years ago. Both remotes are pretty much worn out. You have to smack them in your palm a lot to get them to work. We are average tv watchers, not couch potatoes and not constant channel surfers. I bought this one because we forgot to bring it with the receiver to our summer home and intend to use it as a replacement at home when one of the originals die for good. So far so good on this one but they definitely have a short lifespan. I bought it because I knew it was compatible.
