I used to be able to turn on my Directv DVR while keeping the TV off. I was using the RC64 remote that allows you to turn on both components separately so I could simply turn on the DVR and leave the TV off. Now an upgraded uses the RC73 remote that does NOT allow separate on/off for tv and dvr. I even switched back to the older remote but it still won't allow it.
Does anyone have a solution to this? bc now at night my living room glows when I'm not there and using Sling. Thanks.
