    *DIRECTV does not support external access to power functions on Genie Minis. Leave your Genie Mini powered on and turn off the "Power Saving" feature in your Genie Mini's settings.

  • My receiver isn't showing up anymore. What's going on?

    DIRECTV receivers have a tendency to drop their network connection.  To check your connection press MENU on your DIRECTV remote and navigate to the bottom of the list.  If it says "Reconnect", click on the word "Reconnect" and follow the instructions to reconnect to your network.

  • Where's my Genie Mini?

    Genie Minis must be powered on to be seen by Yoke Remote for DIRECTV. Unfortunately, DIRECTV does not support external access to power functions on Genie Minis. To get around this leave your Genie Mini powered on and turn off the "Power Saving" feature in your Genie Mini's settings.

  • Why can't I control the volume?

    Unfortunately, DIRECTV does not support volume functions on any of their receivers. Yoke Remote for DIRECTV only controls your DIRECTV receiver, therefore it cannot support volume functions.

  • Why can't I control my television?

    Most televisions are controlled through infrared (IR). iOS devices are not capable of controlling components through IR. Therefore, Yoke Remote for DIRECTV (or any app) cannot control your television or any IR based component.
