    My peanut-style remote for my DirecTV w/ Tivo receiver broke. I am on hold with DirecTV right now and they are telling me they can only send me a "Universal" remote that works with any receiver. Am I going to get the DirecTV remote and not the peanut-style remote?

    If I had a peanut remote from another receiver, is there a way to make it work? I.E. I had a DirecTivo HD/DVR and swapped it out for an HR20. But I think the tech left the remote from the other unit. It is a peanut remote. Could I get it to work with my DirecTivo DVR (not HD)?

    all tivo peanut remotes work on any other type of tivo, SA , Dtivo, HD dtivo, tivo/dvdr it doesn't matter.

    If its set to the wrong address, just do the following:

    1. press and hold TIVO/DIRECTV & PAUSE until the light remains on
    2. press zero.
