Can I use the magic remote to control direct tv genie mini?

I have a 65B7 and I cannot get the magic remote to control my Direct TV Genie Mini?  It recognizes it on device connect but will not control Genie mini.

    Is it possible that the DirectTV Mini Genie can be controlled either via IR (Infra-Red) or RF (Radio Frequency)?
    What is the current setting on the device RF?
    If so, try switching it to IR using the Genie remote. Make sure you can still control the Genie with the Genie remote.
    Now, when you pick the device with Device Connect, does the LG remote control the Genie?
