Klipsch R-4B soundbar not powering on with directv HR-44 receiver.

Hello I have a Klipsch R-4B soundbar and it has the auto on feature when it gets the audio signal. For the last few months this feature hasn’t been working. It works with my AppleTv and PS3 but not my genie box. I thought the problem was the soundbar but I’ve had that replaced twice. It seemed to stop working when directv updated the software. Any suggestions on how to fix this?

Hi @Jamesc79,


You can try restarting your equipment or reprogramming the remote to restore the previous settings.

The DirecTV remote will only control the sound features not power on/ off.
