Can I control my directv box from my LG tv remote control?

Technician's Assistant: What LG model do you have? How old is it?

Brand new. 55 inch uhd

Technician's Assistant: Does the TV menu work? Do you have the same problem on all sources/inputs?

Tv menu works. I just don’t want to always have to use two remotes, supposedly it can control the directv box too

I love this site! $9 instead of a repairman or new/used frig can't be beaten. This older woman will worry less now that she knows about this site. Bless you all.
