Directv remote

I had to reprogram my directv remote because it was flashing green and changing batteries didn't work.  Before I could just push select and if I was watching something on my firestick it would automatically go back to regular directv - now it will not do that and the only way to go back to directv is using another remote for just the tv.  Help please.
