Program remote to turn off epson projector
I have the DirecTV stream programmed for my setup: Epson Home Cinema 5050ub projector, Okyo TX-RZ50 receiver, DIrecTV Stream. The DirectTV (and other inputs) are connected to the receiver, the receiver to the projector - all by HDMI. This "mostly" works. The remote controls everything but does not
Equipment fail ,service reps are worse!
I purchased DTV stream less than 2 months ago, along with the Gemini remote equipment. I am now on my 4th device due to the remotes stop working. They will all of a sudden only allow you to move one step before locking up and it takes 1-2 minutes for it to unfreeze to move a second step. DTV claims
Samsung TV remote
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.
Gemini Air Remote
I moved from Uverse to DTV stream a few months ago and was given the Gemini Air dongle. I like the interface and remote better than the app, so I'd like to keep using them. And I like the remote as well, but my problem is it's not playing well with my Samsung tv/soundbar setup. Sometime

Converting from Uverse to DirecTv Stream - Ethernet Ports
I'm sure this has been asked before, but just to confirm: Currently, with my Uverse gateway, I have most of my equipment hardwired. For each tv, I have an ethernet cable running out of the back of the gateway to a network switch, and my Uverse DVR, TV, receiver, and blu-ray player are connected
DirecTV streaming app has sound issues
I just bought a new Samsung TV and use an optical cable to hookup my Bose sound system. Every few minutes the sound stops working for a few seconds then comes back on. Frustrating. I am an I.T. guy and have tried all the "first steps" of changing cables, testing connections, etc. What is the issue?
DirecTV Stream Sound Issues
I've seen a lot of complaints about static, etc. with DirecTV Stream and Roku. I've got the same problem with my Roku 3980X. Have to change channels to fix it for a while. All the troubleshooting suggestions by Directv have been used and still same problem. I would think tha
