Did you know you can watch YouTube videos on your DIRECTV HD DVR? Neither did I, until today. DIRECTV’s Answer Center tells us how:
Can I watch YouTube videos on my TV?
Yes. If you have an HD DVR receiver or a model R22 DVR receiver and it’s connected to your home broadband Internet network, you can access and watch YouTube videos right on your TV. Here’s how it works:
- Press MENU on your remote and select Smart Search
- Type a title or other keyword(s) to search for videos
- YouTube videos matching your search words will appear as the last items in your search results. They will be marked “YouTube” in the right column
- To view, highlight the YouTube video using your arrow buttons and press SELECT, and then select Play.
