    Currently there is the HR34-700, we have the First Look out on the HR44-700 but it's not available just yet.

    So Scott, would I be safe to use this number to program my harmony remote?

    If you have the HR34-700 then I think it uses the same remote codes as all of the HD DVRs from DIRECTV. You should be safe.

    I don't think the harmony database has the HR34. However you can use the codes from the HR20, HR21, or HR22 and they work just fine.

    I don't believe that you need to enter the "-700" part when setting up the Harmony. I know that I never have with my HR2x's

    I had issues with mine until I used the -700. That was several years ago (and obviously therefore not an HR34), so not sure if anything has changed.

    I just had my HR23 replaced with the Genie HR34 and my Harmony remote works just like it did with the HR23 - no changes required...

    Yeah the IR codes across the whole family of receivers has been consistent. I use the HR20-700 for set up of *any* of my Direct TV boxes now because it even has codeset 3 programmed into it so if you are in a room with more than one DVR it's real easy on the Harmony. First time I did that I had to train the keys. Subsequently on different accounts (I have like 11 of them) they now see the codeset 3 keys without having to train them.

    I then name the DVR as it is in the Whole Home name which eliminated confusion when I grab a Harmony from another room, the names are different when you look at the screen.

    My oldest "One" now refuses to toggle into charge mode so I'm having to charge its battery in another unit:nono2: Life is rough :goofygrin

    Just for info purposes I programmed my new 650 a couple of weeks ago and the HR34 was in the database then. Thanks again to all the members here who helped me.
