Use "designed" (custom) remote for manual remote

I show manual remotes for most devices. But sometimes I’ve made changes – such as with the DirecTV virtual remote, where I’ve rearranged buttons, etc.

But when I pull up the manual remote for the DirecTV receiver, it’s defaults to the stock design, which is confusing.

Once we’ve customized a remote, why can’t we designate that remote design to be used for that particular device everywhere (including the manual remote)?

It would also be helpful to be able to access our custom remote designs for identical devices in other rooms. (If this is already possible, that’s fantastic. But I have yet to discover the method for doing so.)


  1. Typo: I meant it defaults…

  2. I see that our custom remotes are in fact available for other activities. Thanks!
