at&t remote

Replacing my 16 yr old plasma tv with new sony bravia XR55A80K, I'm baffled by the at&t/directv remote that has `successfully paired' will not change volume or mute, but can change channels up/down and enter channel numbers as I usually do.  We have to keep sony remote to change volume or mute.

I also expected new tv to work with directv without streaming box, but that too was expecting too much.  That's not a problem for us.

I've a 2017 vizio smart tv that never worked properly with at&t remote since we replaced comcast with directv streaming in 2021.  I was chastened by the then self appointed moderator as making much about little.  Wonder where he stands on this one.  I'm expecting to hear of a fix for this one.  The similar issue with my older vizio tv last exactly 5 minutes upon turning tv on and then disappeared.

AT&T and DirecTV are 2 separate companies. Any updates would be by DirecTV.

There are universal remotes like Logitech, etc. that some have reported work for their issues. Might try searching for solution in the forums.

That TV should work with DirecTV Stream without an outboard device - they quite recently added a version of the app for Android TV.  Have you checked in the Google Play store for a DirecTV app?
