Programming new Genie remote

If I mess up programming my new remote, will the old one still work?  (Other than having to press the “2” button real hard, it works fine.)

I see various instructions & not sure which ones to use.  DirecTV Satellite and Samsung TV.

Yes, as long as you don’t change the receiver to operate in a different mode than before with the prior remote (RF mode or IR mode).
