Thanks for posting in the community! Sorry to hear about the remote issues, but would be glad to help!
To clarify, are you trying to use the DirecTV remote to control everything or the Bose remote?
If you are trying to use the Bose remote, with DirecTV boxes, you may need to go to the settings of the DirecTV satellite box and make sure the remote settings are set to infrared (IR) instead of radio frequency (RF)
