Save when you purchase a 4 pack. The newest remote from DIRECTV, the RC73 has an all-new design re-engineered to give you faster access to the functions you need. This remote fits your hand well and simplifies operation. The RC73 will also control your TV and/or receiver for the volume and power functions, once you've told the remote what model components you have. When used in RF mode, this remote is faster and more accurate due to the RF4CE protocol. This two-way protocol confirms each button press, so no missed digits in three-digit channels! In IR mode, this remote is compatible with all legacy and current DIRECTV receivers. In RF mode, this remote will only work with the DIRECTV HR44 Genie and the Genie clients C41 and C41W. (When in RF mode, it will still use IR for TV/AV functions.)

5You'll thank yourself for replacing the old DirecTV remotes with these
By David Jay Goldstein
Fantastic value! Replaced ALL of my old-style DirecTV remotes (the long grey ones with the slide switch at the top - that broke in the first two weeks of use). These remotes are FAR superior. The toggle switches for changing channels and volume are a HUGE improvement over the old buttons. Note: could not find the codes for my TV's in the guide - had to look them up online.

3They look and act just like the ones I received with my Genie
By Eb Jack Murray
They look and act just like the ones I received with my Genie....except with
one big problem. They would not pair with my Yahama receiver. I tried everything
but no luck. They do operate the Directv receiver just fine.

5Similar to TIVO "Peanut" Remote. Love it.
By CalRodBird
Finally a well designed DirecTV remote. I've had DTV since 1996 (really) and always hated the standard white remotes. This one reminds me of the "peanut" remote we had way back with Tivo. Hated giving up that remote but this one is just about as good. Love it.
