Remote not controlling TV volume

Like others my remote works except for controlling the TV remote. As Khaven26 pointed out it was a setting issue. For me though it was as the setting to control the sound bar connected via HDMI cable. Go to Settings/Remote & Devices/Program Your Remote and enable the HDMI-CEC Volume Control.

METV

I recently switched from U-Verse to Directv and I am very disappointed in the fact that METV is not included on the Ultimate package on Directv. Had I known this beforehand, I would have most likely stayed with U-Verse. Is there any chance that METV will  be added to Directv. I am a very disappointe

Record PGA Tournament

I have DVR set to record all new PGA Golf. However, it did not record Round 1 of the PGA Championship. I would have had to set DVR to 2022 PGA tournament to record it.  ESPN is particularly bad about no tags.  Tag it PGA Golf.  That would be nice.  ESPN has no other showing for

I'm interested in using Media Share, but want to have a better idea of how it works. Are my photos, etc., copied to the DVR in any way or does it just allow me to access the library that is on my computer?
