Or you can just program it using the code. Slide the selector on the remote to AV1 or AV2. Press and hold the SELECT + MUTE buttons until the LED of the mode you selected (AV1/AV2) blinks twice. Enter the following code: 20522. The LED should blink twice again and you then can operate your Xbox/Xbox 360. This code is provided as the Microsoft DVD Player Code in the DirecTV manual. ;)
