Hello and thank you for your question. I look forward to assisting you today. So just to be clear, are you trying to control the volume with your direct TV remote?

dan to your 1st question, trying to control the volume with the directv remote
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
HELLO???????
TV Technician: Dan, Broadcast Engineer replied 2 years ago

Okay. The first think you will need to do is to pair your Direct TV remote to your TV. Do you have the user manual for the TV?

Customer reply replied 2 years ago
we got no manual for the tv!! you said pair my DIRECTVremote to my TV. Pair?? huh??
TV Technician: Dan, Broadcast Engineer replied 2 years ago

In order for the Direct TV remote to control the volume on the TV, it needs to be paired to that particular model. Can you give me the model number of the TV please?

Disregard the numbers. That was created when I copied the image. So you have the Genie for sure?

Press MENU on the Direct TV remote. It is located in the center of the remote beneath the navigation buttons. A menu will appear on your TV. Select "Settings & Help. Select "Settings" from the menu that appears. Choose "Remote Control". This will open a variety of options for your remote control. Select the "Program Remote" option. The screen will display instructions. Follow these directions to automatically program your device for your TV to work with your Direct TV remote control. Let me know how you come out.

Customer reply replied 2 years ago

TV Technician: Dan, Broadcast Engineer replied 2 years ago

When you use the volume up and down button on the remote, does that control the volume on the TV?

Ask Your Own TV Question
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
sorry i didn't see your note...ok what happens when i try to control volume, yes i can control volume
TV Technician: Dan, Broadcast Engineer replied 2 years ago

Okay so then the problem is the volume fluctuates by its self?

Ask Your Own TV Question
TV Technician: Dan, Broadcast Engineer replied 2 years ago

If that is the case, go to the option menu of the TV and look for Auto Volume. Turn it off and that will keep the volume at the level you set it at. Let me know please.

finally i got this to work! maybe you're confused on what i want. my DirectV Remote goes up and down and controls the volume, but i just have to hit the volume button till its like at 75, just sitting in my living. why does it have to go that loud?? loud just by NUMBER only??
TV Technician: Dan, Broadcast Engineer replied 2 years ago

There is a volume level you need to set in both the TV and Direct TV receiver. For instance, if the volume level is low on the TV and you are only controlling the volume level of the DTV receiver, then you will really need to crank it up to hear anything at a comfortable level. The reverse is true if you are controlling the volume of the TV but the level of the DTV receiver is low. What it boils down to is, whichever volume control you are controlling, go into the other device and turn the volume up to maximum and you should be set.
