Default DirecTV volume control

Anyone know how I can control the volume through the box, and not on the TV?

I am using a computer monitor for a television and I have to get up to lower the volume, I rather just control through the box if thats even possible.

Thanks

I programmed my DirecTV remote to operate my television also. Since you're using a computer monitor, I assume there is no provision for a remote on the monitor?

When I had DirecTV there was a separate volume level that was controlled by the box.

I'll call tech support and ask. I can't figure it out.

My DTV box doesn't have volume controls. Maybe it depends on what model box you have, but I ran across this and others said the box doesn't have volume controls either.
