DirectV wants to change my receivers to new HD receivers for free. However, I will have to call my Elan Via tech to reprogram the codes for probably $500. Is there a way I can program the receiver code myself?

If you are swapping DTV for DTV receivers, its somewhat likely that the same codes will work. If not, then you'll have to have someone with VIA Tools and the learner do the programming.


BTW, do you really use the VIA touchpanels to control the DTV boxes? Are these wall mounted VIAs? DO you have handheld remotes?

I have wall mounted and 2 table touchscreen remotes. The manufacturer of the receivers are different, therefore the codes are different.

Try them first, they may still work. I have DTV boxes from Sony, Samsung, RCA and DTV branded and they all respond to the same codes.
