Thanks for joining our community, and sharing your question with us ! I’d be happy to see how I can help you answer your question.
Connecting the IR blaster wouldn’t be necessary unless you have your DirecTV set top box behind closed doors in your Home Theater stand. It appears that Sony was able to answer your question directly in Q&A section for the Sony model you purchased on BestBuy.com. I’m happy that they were able provide you some resources to troubleshoot from. For our friends that may be having a similar issue the resource Sony has provided can be located here.
Let me know if you have any further questions. I’d be happy to help you answer them!
