Receivers like the D11, r15, H20 use codes 00001 & 00002. where HD DVR models Hr20/ HR21 use 00001 & 00003. 00001 in each case are the same.
start by programming either 00002 or 00003 to the av1 or av2 device on the white oem remote. slide back to SAT device and enter the menu:
1. menu> settings> setup> remote> receiver mode>
2. you will see either Directv or Av1/Av2, click whichever to reveal both
3. press Av1/Av2, the remote will no longer control the receiver, slide to av1 or av2
4. press DONE and exit the menu
You can leave the SAT device programmed with code 00001 and the av1 or av2 programmed with alternate address and control two receivers with one remote. Or you can program the SAT device with alternate code, and change av1 or av2 to whatever you wish.
