Remote for DTV and fire tv

Is it possible to use only the DTV remote to control DTV and a Toshiba fire TV? I purchased a new TV for my elderly mother and using 1 remote to change DTV channels and the other for volume will confuse her.

Yes you can easily do that by just reprogramming DirecTV remote to your new Toshiba fire TV by using the following code: 54002

I can you need to reset the remote:

First off, Press ‘Menu’

Select ‘Settings and Help’

Next click on ‘Settings’, then ‘Remote Control’

Then make sure ‘Reset Remote’ is highlighted.

I programmed my DirecTV universal remote for my Toshiba Fire TV . It turns the TV on and allows me to move the cursor (? move over images), but the select button does not work. Code 11656 is the code I used for the TV. How can I make the "select" button work?

Hi @Djsunday34 you came to the right place for help.

To make sure we're on the same page, are you referring to the DIRECTV STREAM remote control?

If so, keep in mind that this remote only works with the DIRECTV streaming device, TVs and sound bars.

I hope it brings some light into your concern.
