DIRECTV Multi Box Setup

Modified on Fri, 18 Sep 2015 at 09:12 AM

Your H25 DIRECTV receiver is capable of having up to 8 different i.r. codes.  This can be utilized when you have more than one DIRECTV receiver in the same room and you don't have an RF Remote setup.  To begin multi box, i.r. setup press:

Menu.  scroll to settings / gear and hit select.  Scroll to Remote Control and push select.  Firmware can be slightly different in your H25 receiver so the next step will either be under ADVANCED or Program Remote.  I f you see the option for ADVANCED, go that route first.  If you don't see ADVANCED, the go for Program Remote and the next step should let you choose Advanced.  You will either see MULTI BOX set up or you will see a warning at this point that says only to proceed if you want to set up more than one receiver in a room.  PROCEED.  You will get an on screen message with detailed instruction of what buttons to push on the remote.  Remember, you can choose up to 8 different codes.  So you have more that 8 TVs in the same room?  Just stagger the codes and repeat a pattern and you can keep harmony between the receivers.
