Remote for DirecTV Stream app on Samsung smart tv?

I just subscribed to DirecTV Stream and loaded the app on my Samsung smart tv. The problem is the Samsung remote does not do a good job of navigating the app. Example, the guide button doesn't bring up the guide, etc.

There are several DirecTV remotes online but I'm not sure if these are only for the accompanying streaming box. I don't want the box since the app is already on the Smart TV.

Just what are you expecting from the remote?

Samsung remotes do not have a guide button only home button, which as you know takes you to the smarthub. The guide in smarthub has no relation to the DTVS app. Play with your remote to see what it can do.

Sorry, I don’t have the remote with me right now. My question is really if any of the DIRECTV remotes will work without having the actual DTV box.

If you are looking for channel numbers then no. Harmony makes a 3rd party remote.any have those.
