Control Types

DirecTV can be controlled via IP or IR controls. IP control is recommended, and is selected by default. Note: in order to use IP control, Caavo must be on the same network as your DirecTV set-top box.


Auto Switching

Caavo can detect the follow activities on DirecTV:

  • HDMI-CEC commands
  • Power on
  • DirecTV IR Remote operation

If Auto Switching for DirecTV is enabled and any of these activities happen, then Caavo will turn on and switch sources to DirecTV automatically.


Basic Controls

DirecTV keys are mapped to the following Caavo buttons:

DirecTV Caavo

 Exit  Long press  
 Menu  Long press  
 Info  Long press  
 Replay  Long press  
 Skip  Long press

You can also customize additional long-press functions. Long press the  button. You can then select a function on the left side of the menu, and press & hold the button you want to assign that function to.
