Thanks, but maybe I need to rephrase this somehow. I have the universal remote that came with my DIRECTV DVR. I want to program it to control the xbox 360 dvd functions, not the xbox 360 universal remote to control my dvr functions. I was able to program it (directv remote) to use on the original xbox but can't seem to find a code for the xbox 360. Just wondering if possible and if there is a code to program it with. From the looks of it so far, Microsoft is forcing you to buy their remote.
