Pair 2021 Amazon Fire TV 4-series to DirectTV remote

Neither Amazon nor FireTV are listed as TV manufacturers during pairing remote process. Is there a code I can enter to pair.  This is for 2021 Amazon brand Fire TV 4-Series

Solved - someone on Amazon worked out that TCL brand codes work for pairing the remote to the Amazon FireTV, which it did.

I don't think any of the DirecTV Remotes can pair with Amazon Fire devices. What remote model do you have?

Hi - not looking to pair to the Fire apps, looking to simply pair the Direct TV remote to the TV so I can turn on/off and volume control the TV.   Remote is RC64R

That's a pretty old remote model. It likely doesn't have codes for the new Amazon Fire TV. You'll need a better universal remote, like Logitech Harmony.

@penegor22, we're here to help!

Let's check the Volume Lock by following the next steps:

  1. On the remote, press MENU > Settings & Help > Settings > Remote Control > Program Remote > OK > Change Volume Lock.
  2. Choose the desired audio source to control: Use Audio Device or Use TV.
    • Once done, an OSD confirms success.

Let us know how it goes.

@DIRECTVhelp , that won't help if they can't program the remote to their TV.

Just remember that many TV "brands" are just marketing labels, they are not manufacturers. The TV is actually made by someone else.
