Controlling a Denon receiver

I am trying to use the AT&T remote to control my Samsung TV and my Denon AVR S540BT receiver. It controls everything fine except it will not turn on the power to the Denon. I will turn it off and it controls the volume up and down but once it turns the unit off it will not turn it back on.

Do you have DIRECTV service or U-verse? You mention AT&T remote so I wanted to confirm.
