DirecTV is a television service provider that offers TV service via satellite. When you're subscribed to the DirecTV service, you're given a set top box and a remote that can control the DirecTV box as well as other devices. If you'd like to control the volume on your TV using the DirecTV remote control, you can do so by programming the remote to work with all of your TV's features. A wizard built into the DirecTV box can help you do this in a few steps.

Turn on the DirectTV box and your TV.

Press the "Menu" button on the remote.

Move through the options using the arrow buttons on the remote and select "Parental, Favs and Setup" using the "OK" button.

Select the "System Setup" option using the arrow buttons and "OK" button.

Highlight the "Remote" selection and press "OK."

Choose the "Program Remote" option and follow the on-screen instructions to program your remote to work with your TV set. When finished, the volume up/down buttons on the remote will work to control your TV's volume.
