QLED and The Frame TVs

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!!

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.
