Introduction: Use Xbox 360 With a Directv Remote!

This "hack" allows you to use a directv remote with an xbox360, saving you around 25-30 bucks!!! I accidentally did this when I was trying to program my stereo. This is extreamly simple and easy to do. I am the first that I've seen that has done this. PLEASE DO NOT USE THIS WITHOUT MY PERMISSION. POST A COMMENT ASKING ME AND I WILL REPLY!!!

Step 1: 1

First switch your remote to av1. Point your remote away from your reciever so that when you press a button it won't react. Then press and hold the select and mute buttons untill the light above the av1 switch blinks twice.

Step 2: 2

press 991, then press 2. After that you press power.

Step 3: 3

After doing this you press the up button 30-50 times untill you xbox turns on, do this slowly cause there is a small delay. If you've done everything correctly while pressing the chan. up button nothing should happen on the tv and the light above av1 will go on each time you hit it.

Step 4: 4

When your Xbox 360 does turn on (after about 5-10 min.) press the select button to store that code and your done! Enjoy your new xbox 360 remote!!! =D

P.S. this was my 1st "hack" ever and I'm glad to see it can save you money and be somewhat usefull.

    would like to use your Directv/Xbox 360 hack, may I? thanks. mudcrab

    can i have permission to use this with my directv remote for my xbox 360

    can i have permission to use dish remote with xbox360?

    Awesome!! Thanks! I did it the way you said and it works. I was looking to buy a media remote on eBay. I am so glad you posted this. It will save me money. ?

    Oh.. So monroe07 is the authority on what can be posted! So glad you told us. Everybody needs to contact you before we post an instructable so we know "it's an intelligent doorknob"!!

    The writer of this instigram is a moron. Can we have him removed? If you want to "protect" your "work" learn something a halfway intellegent doorknob cant learn and do some meaningful work thats actually unique and Then protect it.

    ive had my xbox tuned to my universal remote for years this aint no hack sorry to burst ur bubble dude most come with the code even the direct tv remote also on some smart tvs like i got u can control it thru the hdmi cord with the remote that came with the tv much simpler havent seen it for a while tho

    lol, i did that like three years ago dude

    Google brought me here, so I just want to say, thanks for the guide, but you can easily skip the code search by using the code 21708 (source: DirecTV)

    I'm curious if a universal remote could be used to control the xbox 360 or is there something special about the directv remote such as having a code that other remotes won't possibly have? Thanks for anyone up to the challenge to try this out and replying.
