RC73 will not switch to RF mode - DirecTV

My TV and box were controlled on the same remote from initial setup. I fell asleep with the remote in the bed and when I tried to use it later, it would not work to control either one. I looked up how to get it to work but apparently the solution I found only activated IR mode. I looked up how to switch to RF and have been trying the onscreen steps for a few days, still getting the "RF Setup failed" message. I just want to be able to turn my TV down without having to get out of bed.

This question, "RC73 will not switch to RF mode," is about DirecTV channels, programming, equipment, and sports.
