    My original DIRECTV remote started to have issues with certain buttons not working very well (on/off). So I decided to buy some replacements and found these on Amazon. I received the remotes and installed the included batteries. I went into the DIRECTV onscreen setup menu and programmed the remote to work with my TV. The remotes work great and were very inexpensive. I use one in my bedroom and the other in the living room, both were able to be programmed to work with the TV’s (A Samsung and LG) with no problems.

    I have two kids, one being a toddler, and remotes are like the winning piece of a game to them. No matter how high, hidden, told no, or given fake remotes they seem to run off with the real ones, and I find them later sticky, with missing backs. Currently one bedroom remote, and the living room remote got dropped, and the little black piece in the front flew off of both of them, and I couldn’t get them back on. And the sad part, is that we do have insurance with our television provider, but have mercy if it isn’t a hassle to go through them!

    So when I discovered these remotes for 8.99 for two I had to have them! Got them in, in record time, and my husband set them up in a flash. Oddly enough, we thought our box was getting slow, and once we set up the remotes, we realized it was the remotes the whole time! Browsing through the guide is a breeze now, no sticking, stopping, or waiting for it to respond! Finally! I even bought the silicone covers (had no idea they even made those) on Amazon also as our backs always come off on our remotes and are lost forever. Definitely a great deal, and great quality! Going to purchase two more for the back bedroom televisions.

    Very good replacement remote,I’ve been a Directv customer for 25 yrs. and only used the older RC 64-66 remotes .One of my older remotes power button stopped working,but luckily i had a brand new one tucked away.Now i needed an extra remote to replace it so i thought i give this RC73 remote a try ,i could have purchased the older remote for the same price but i wanted to try something more modern and with a different look,and the reviews on this remote are very positive .The feel of this remote in your hand is very good,the button layout is good and feel very positive ,it is missing a few buttons that the older remotes have,like the green,yellow,blue,format ,active and TV input buttons ,but then this is a more compact remote,the button i do miss is the TV input button so you will have to use a different remote if you want to change the Tv input or source to access other devices like the FireStick .All in all a very good replacement remote for the $$$.Also go to You Tube for an easier way to set up this remote

    I had one remote going wonky for my DirecTV Genie. At the value for 2 of them, now I have an extra! I did have a little trouble programming it, but it was only my impatience and wanting things to happen immediately. Just be patient and it will program flawlessly. The only thing that they don’t tell you with it is the real process for programming it, which I found and successfully used from the internet. Let me help you with that:
    1. point the remote at your Genie box
    2. press and hold the “Mute” and “Enter” buttons at the same time until the remote’s green light blinks twice
    3. the TV will show “applying IR/RF” setup message
    4. press menu on the remote once that is complete
    5. select settings & help>settings>remote control>program remote (it might not be those exact words, but you get the idea)
    6. choose the tv brand and let it work its magic!

    You’re welcome! 🙂

    So far, so good. Came in a package just as if it arrived from DIRECTV. Remote, two batteries, labels for back of remote to say which room it was from and the Genie Remote Guide. I was hoping I could just point it at the tv and it would magically program itself, but I had to do these steps.

    I have a five year old Samsung tv. With my old remote I turned on the tv and box. Then I pointed the new remote at the genie client box, pressing Mute and Enter simultaneously. The remote blinked green twice. I don’t know if this step was necessary because I had to do more work to get it working. Next I used my old remote to go to menu, e-manual, contact Samsung. On the screen it showed me a bunch of numbers associated with my Tv. I copied down the model code, which started with UN. Next when I asked tv to program the remote, it sent me to ‘program tv’ and I typed in S for Samsung. When I got that screen it wanted the model number. I had to type in UN. You would think it would let you scroll from AA to ZZ, but no. You have to get closer to your model number to scroll. At some point it took over searching to find the match in the 66 options for UN, then said Did it work? I pressed the volume control on the brand new remote and it actually worked, so programming was successful. I hope it is easier for the rest of you guys.

    BTW, I had tried to order a free one from DIRECTV but after 15 minutes online logging in, being redirected to login again, having to reset a password, sent in loops to the beginning, asked to reset my just set password, I said, screw you. It took only 5 seconds to order this from Amazon. I gave ATT/DIRECTV a bad review and told them why I went to Amazon and paid for this instead. Two for about $8, not bad. I guess it’s time to buy a TiVo or such and cancel ATT/DIRECTV.

    Apparently the original Direct TV remotes are very tasty as my Great Dane decided to eat one. Also I would like to point out to all parents there are two rouge pesky children named “Not Me” and “I Don’t Know”, they have been found all over the United States and are responsible for lost remotes along with other random broken, and missing items around the house. Apparently these two kids move undetected through everyone’s home? These same two kids lost the remote AND completely destroyed a Tonka truck at the neighbors down the road.
    I purchased these remotes with reservation but it turns out they are molded from a different flavor of plastic – so far my dog absolutely hates them but I fear they are not out of the reach of Not Me & I Don’t Know…..
