So I am assuming (and hoping) that Edmund will likely respond to this message but I have a Yamaha RX- 497 receiver and just had Directtv installed today and have the Genie HDDVR and the RC65 Directtv remote. I have read through all of the previous threads with the instructions about the mute/select 993 volume down/select, etc....and CANNOT get the directtv remote to manage the Yamaha volume. I have no problem just leaving my yahama receiver on all of the time (none of the codes can even get the remote to even turn the receive off and/or on anyway) but would love to just have one remote to work the tv/directv box and volume. Currently I have a Samsung tv and just used the tv menu to turn the internal tv volume off and am just using the second Yamaha remote to adjust the volume....while I am not the most tech-savvy person, I do feel like I have given all of the previous instructions a good try---am I missing something? (PS--I have had directtv in the past and could never get just one remote to work it all...did have comcast in between and did get it to be a one-remote controlled system).
