I know the Directv Now app for Roku is less than a month old but does anyone know a discrete ir code that may work to be programed as a "shortcut button" to open the app with just a push of that button. I know there are discrete codes for many apps - You tube/NetFlix/Hulu etc. There are several codes for apps for services that no longer exist. I know this may take awhile to come up the right code but please reply if discovered...thanks

Do you know how to test for this code yourself?

Here are all known Roku discretes. As Rob said, you can search for new codes by trying all from the sheet below. I'd try blank ones and the ones marked obsolete/discontinued. Let us know what you find.

Full code search with this protocol literally takes about 15 minutes. It's not bad at all.

Found it and a few others. Will update the main thread and files later.

Code:
Function         OBC
DirecTV NOW      101
Power            012
Starz            089


Not 100% sure what Power actually does. It appears to toggle the display on and off but not fully power down. The screen displays "Power Off" when you send the command, but the video signal remains (doesn't go black). A second press restores the display immediately.

Is it confirmed that it works for Directv Now? or was it listed in a file somewhere as the right code for Directv now?

Confirmed OBC 101 works for Directv TV Now...Thanks .... Now to create macro to launch Roku into Directv Now. One more step towards getting the OTT (over the top) experience to seem more like cable tv

Of course it's confirmed. I found all of them by trial and error as Rob suggested. There is no list or file besides the one on this site from many searches by myself and several others over the years.

I also added a new DirecTV NOW logo to the icons and logos section for Xsight and Nevo remotes.

Here's the main Roku codes thread:

I played around with Power and could not find anything useful that it does. It appears to be partially implemented and buggy.
