Hi Everyone, does anybody know the code I can use with my Directv remote (RC32, RC65) to communicate with my Ortek/Adesso IR reciever?

Thanks!!

There isn't one. Sorry. If you get an MCE (RC6) dongle instead, you can use code 21972. If replace your DirecTV remote with any learning universal remote, then you can control both your Ortek and DirecTV receiver via IR, among other things. The RCA RCRP05BR is a good choice. It uses all the same codes as your DirecTV remote but learns and does macros and is JP1 compatible.

Great info thanks! Just curious how do you know for sure there isn't one, is there a way of checking? That RCA remote does looks sweet, and the at that price I could pretty easily replace all 6 directv remotes...would that RCA work with the Ortek receiver?

I know that no UEI remotes (maker of the DirecTV) have current Ortek codes because the JP1 community keeps a database, and it isn't there. I use an Ortek receiver like yours myself. While the RCA doesn't have Ortek codes either, it's cheap and can learn them (or you can load them from your PC using a JP1 cable as I do). If you get 6 of them, you should definitely get a JP1 cable for another $8 and do all the programming from your PC. The only thing they lack is RF. So if any of your DirecTV remotes are RF, you'll lose that capability. The code on the RCA for DirecTV is CBL 1377. In case you don't like the RCA (some don't), perhaps you should just get one to start.
