    3rd DVR is HR23 and it will not accept RF from AV2 position

    Directv switch is running HR34 in RF
    AV1 is running first HR23-700 in RF
    But AV2 will not run HR23-700 #2 in RF, only IR

    The av1 or av2 device has to be programmed for one IR code from 00001 to 00008 first, before it will accept RF programming.

    1. av2
    2. press and hold MUTE & SELECT, wait for two blinks, release
    3. enter 0 0 0 0 1

    4. press and hold MUTE & SELECT, wait for two blinks, release
    5. enter 9 6 1
    6. press CH UP
    7. enter the last 6 digits of the Receiver ID #(RID), found on a sticker in the access card compartment
    8. press SELECT

    Just a thought:
    Did you check to see if that receiver is set for the RF mode ?

    OK now that you've given a bit more info:

    Pick one that you want to stay on AV1. Mask/block its IR "eye" so it no longer responds.

    Now go to the "other one", and go into advanced settings for the remote.

    what you want to find is the 0 0 0 0 x code that works with this one.
    00002 -00008 [since 00001 is being used].

    Use this code for AV2 IR and this receiver.

    1. AV2
    2. press and hold MUTE & SELECT for two blinks
    3. enter 0 0 0 0 x
    4. press and hold MUTE & SELECT for two blinks
    5. enter 9 6 1
    6. press CH down
    7. press SELECT

    When you've sorted things out AV1 is coded with 00001 and AV2 is coded
    with the other.

    RF uses the access card for each is coded separately.

    That would bug the hell out of me. I have had all three slots set to RF for three different receivers all next to each other.

    You might "start fresh" with all back to IR, then reset the remote with:
    mute select flashing
    enter 9 8 1

    Then start setting the AV2 receiver first to RF [with the other 2 receivers masked]
    You may need to start in the DTV "slot", but when you're on the setting up the RF screen, change the slot to AV2
    1. AV2
    2.press and hold MUTE & SELECT for two blinks
    3. enter 9 6 1
    4. press CH UP
    5. enter the last 6 digits of the Receiver ID #, found on a sticker in the access card compartment
    6. press SELECT

    Then AV2 & its receiver should be in RF.

    Unmask the receiver for AV1

    use DTV slot again to get to the receiver's screen

    1. AV1
    2. press and hold MUTE & SELECT for two blinks
    3. enter 9 6 1
    4. press CH UP
    5. enter the last 6 digits of the Receiver ID #, found on a sticker in the access card compartment
    6. press SELECT

    This should now have AV1 & AV2 set to RF for each.

    Finally unmask the last receiver and
    1. DTV
    2. press and hold MUTE & SELECT for two blinks
    3. 5. enter 9 6 1
    4. press CH UP
    5. enter the last 6 digits of the Receiver ID #, found on a sticker in the access card compartment
    6. press SELECT

    I've never had a 23.

    I did work with a neighbor who had a couple of D11s. They were different manufactures and one worked fine with the default 00001, but the others default was 00002.
    "I really doubt" any of the H/HR2x don't work with the default 00001.
    I don't use the 0000x at all because I always use RF and change the receivers to RF from the start.
    "Now" the H25 needs an adapter for RF, so I've had to use IR for it and [again] haven't had problems as I've changed TVs & remotes with the 25.

    The 0000x codes are there for those that don't want to use RF [or don't have RF remotes] and want to have more than one receiver next to each other.

    That's hard to believe [not that you're having problems].

    Which remote(s)?
    What's the dash/model of these 23s?

    OK I've used both of those remotes with AV2 working in RF.
    With all three being the same model, "I guess" you've tried changing each to work in RF on AV2?

    Have you tried putting one of the other receivers on AV2 and put this problematic one on DTV or AV1 ?

    So what's your third receiver?

    If you have two HR23s, they could be on DTV & AV1, which leaves AV2 for ???

    So can you set the 34 for RF on AV2?

    No I couldn't, but I have AV2 working now. And all three are RF.:)

    I went through the steps in post#7 and then I could not get any of them back to RF.
    One important step I was hitting and missing on and was throwing me off and jimmie57 mentioned it earlier, but I kind of glazed over it.
    I had to be on each receivers IR to RF programing page where the RID is presented to you with the 961 instructions before it worked . Even the HR34 would not work until I did this step.

    During the process, I must have been on and off that page when I would add them to AV1 and never when trying AV2.

    "Well yeah", you need to sync both the receiver and the remote when changing from IR to RF.
    Once a receiver is set, you can reprogram another remote by "just" following the button presses on the remote.
