I have a new Direct TV D11 box and remote. The remote will not operate my Yamaha RX-V596 AV Receiver. I have tried to program every code available, including an unsuccessful phone call to Direct TV. At best, the remote will turn the AV power on and off, but will not operate the volume or anything else. I even tried the "seach" function, with no success. Can someone please help?

Thanks,

Dan

Program code 30176 to AV1 or AV2, then do the following: First you need to enter a TV code, yours or any:

1. av1 or av2
2. press and hold MUTE & SELECT for two blinks
3. enter 9-9-3
4. press VOL DOWN

Now the Vol work in just AV1 or AV2, if you want the Yamaha aud in all devices do the following:

1. av1 or av2
2. press and hold MUTE & SELECT for two blinks
3. enter 9-9-3
4. press SELECT

Now Yamaha Audio is in all devices including TV, if you want restore the TV vol in just the Tv device do the following:

1. Tv
2. press and hold MUTE & SELECT for two blinks
3. enter 9-9-3
4. press VOL DOWN

Edmund,

You are a Master Remote Control guru. All hail Edmund the Great.

Thank you very much. I have been wrestling with this for a week, and it took you a very brief time to fix this for me.

Thanks again,

dan

THANKS!!!!!

There isn't one code that will give you both ON & OFF commands, so all you can hope for is volume, code 30176 will give that, but the volume keys NEVER work initially with ANY audio code, not until you do the following:

First there has to be a tv code programmed to the tv device or the volume keys won't work. With tv code in, your's or any, and code 30176 programmed to av1 or av2 device, to get the volume:

1. av1 or av2
2. press and hold MUTE & SELECT for two blinks
3. enter 9 9 3
4. press SELECT

Thanks Edmund!!! That did the trick for volume up/down. The only thing I would want it to also do is on/off, but I can live without that.

Happy New Year!!!!

Somewhere I ran across a Yamaha toggle power code in doing one of these setups, even though the Yamaha remote doesn't have it! When you're trying different codes, be sure to see if the Yamaha power code they give you is a toggle.

So I have a question regarding Yamaha receivers and the power codes. When I had the Tivo peanut remote for the direct tv R10 it used to power my Yamaha receiver on and off. Now I have the Direct TV HR21 box with the new white and black remote and I am reading you can't get that function because the way Yamaha requires two different codes for power on and off. Was the peanut remote toggleing between two different power codes? I would love to hit power on the new remote and have it turn on my TV and Yamaha receiver as the peanut used to. At worst case I would settle to have to slide the function button on the remote to AV1 to control the receiver but it only powers it off, not on. Any ideas?

Thanks

The directv remotes are made by UEI, UEI's yamaha code is about ten years older than any tivo peanut, and any flaws UEI codes had were corrected either by learning feature or the use of advanced codes. Advanced codes are 3 & 5 digit codes for individual functions, like discrete ON or OFF. But sadly the flaws in the UEI codesets in directv remotes go uncorrected because they lack the learning and advanced codes features.

If you have one of the newer white directv remotes, the rc64 series, there are codes with ON command and ones with OFF, programming one of each to av1 & av2 devices give you both commands on the remote at least.

Hi -- I was reading through these threads and was wondering if someone could assist me with my new Yamaha 390BL surround sound system. I'm trying to control the volume/mute for it through my 2 year-old DirectTV HD DVR white remote (RC34) and programming the Yamaha codes provided by DTV via AV2 doesn't do the trick. I have video out connected from DTV to my Sony TV and optical out from DTV to my Yamaha. So TV/video is controlled with my RC34 remote and audio with my Yamaha remote. With my previous Sony stereo system my RC34 controlled video and allowed me to mute and increase/decrease volume. I'd like to replicate that with my new system. Thanks! David

I also have the same system. Follow edmund's advise. However, that setup will only allow your remote to change volume and your remote must be changed to AV1 in order to control your Yamaha volume. If you turn off your receiver you will have to start over so just leave your receiver on. I have the new HR23-700 from Directv.

If you have a tv code programmed to the tv device, and when doing the 993 procedure above you pressed SELECT in the 4th step, the Yamaha volume will be punched through to ALL devices , including the tv device.

But, if you pressed VOL DOWN or UP in the 4th step, yes the yamaha volume will only work in that one device.

edmund, i was sitting here tonight programming my new Yamaha RX-V1900 and having a devil of a time trying to figure out how my kids and wife were going to navigate dtv (channels) and yamaha remote (volume) . This thread saved me, especially the your last post.

Now i can turn on/off the TV with yamaha remote. I can also control the volume of the yamaha from the dtv remote, but i can't turn off the yamaha receiver with the dtv remote. Is that possible? seems odd, but I can only control the volume. Also is there a way to turn off the dtv box (HR 20) with the yamaha remote?

thanks,

Marty

Yes, it's totally possible. I am in the same pickle, but that's only because I've been too lazy to program a real programmable remote to do the job for me here at home.

Also is there a way to turn off the dtv box (HR 20) with the yamaha remote?

If nothing else, you can teach the power command to the Yamaha remote. I've got a client who has both a set of cable box AND satellite box commands learned on his Yamaha remote, power included.

By the way, there's no real reason to turn off the power on a DirecTV receiver. With a DVR, it's a bit quieter when turned off, but probably not worth the additional turn-on process. Just leave 'em on.



masmusic,
a lot of times, new members look up topics and land on old threads, then comment on them. The problem in a thread as old as this one either has been solved, or the original poster (OP) doesn't care any more. Would you still be looking here for an answer more than a year later?

The other thing newbies do is to ask a question not completely on topic in a thread. This gets limited attention because the thread is not about your topic, so only a few people will ever bother to look at it.

You are a member. You have the right to make a post, which means you have the right to start a new thread. You ask questions well, which is to say you're clear about what you're doing. The only thing you need now is to add the model of the TV in case it matters. I gave you an answer because I happened to see this thread, but next time increase your chances by starting a new thread (with a title that's clear as to what you need).

I am not quite sure Ernie but I think if you leave the satellite box on all the time , it might not force a firmware upgrade in the middle of the night. I know Bell TV boxes by default always power off after 4 hours of no remote input to be able to check firmware at 3 am.

Besides what about the kyoto protocol, lol

I agree with you though that most people post questions in old threads (the biggest one the HDTV in Toronto) instead of starting a new one so it is easier to find in the future. I guess Daniel should encourage this in the future.
