All of my TVs are Samsung Smart TVs. Two of my largest are a 65" and 75", they are not OLED.
I can play and use any of the Samsung Apps, like Netflix and Prime using my Samsung Remote. I cannot use my Directv RC73 Universal Remote. I can access the Apps but when I choose a program to stream the TV immediatly goes back to playing Directv Satellite (which is my primary provider). I do have two smaller Samsung TVs with apps loaded and using an older Directv RC66RX remote that has a switch for TV, I can play the apps without having to use the Samsung Remote. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!!
Solved! Go to Solution.
I also broke down and called Directv and was told that the RC73 is not a universal remote even though I've read that it is. It can change the TV input, vol, channel, power on and off. That's it.
Have you spoken with DIRECTV about this to see if they could have some troubleshooting steps? Although I don't personally own any Samsung Smart TVs, I have friends that do, and some of them have to use two separate remotes as well.
I appreciate your time responding to me. I can sometimes be dumb as a stump! I cannot see a TV Icon Toggle on my RC73 Remote. I also have an older RC66RX Remote for my older HD Directv Receiver and that one has a slide selector on the top that can be moved to TV. I wish this newer RC73 Remote had a selector. Truly I cannot find a TV Icon Toggle on this RC73 Remote.
