Satellite television provider DIRECTV supplies a set-top box that is used as an tuner and interface between the satellite receiving dish and your television. The box features a remote control that not only is used to change satellite channels, but also can be programmed to operate the rest of your home entertainment gear, like the television itself. Disc devices like a Blu-ray player can be programmed. Programming the remote is accomplished with some codes.
