DVR will not recognize the remote…

normally the dvr would acknowledge that the remote is not working and recommend programming. however I accidentally changed my dvr from IR-RF or vise versa ??

ive tried several different ways to program the remote but no dice!

I figured it out,.. since my remote was changed to IR it would not communicate with the DVR per usual with the DVR being inside of my TV cabinet. After opening the door so that the remote had direct communication with the DVR. I was able to change it back to RF in settings.

However what got me into this situation, I was trying to figure out why my DIRECTV keeps changing my TV ratio format on certain channels. In which case I have to change it back in settings using the factory TV remote. ie zoom, standard, stretch, auto, direct… You would think the “auto” setting would fix this. But it doesn’t, and it’s very frustrating.
