    I've been using the RC71 exclusively now for the past few days, and I must admit that I actually like it! It took some getting used to the features that differ from the RC65, but I like the way it fits and feels. The buttons are very responsive to the touch, and the HR44 responds with lightning speed.

    Is there anyway to purchase one of these remotes by itself without getting an HR44 as well?

    I believe this remote is only compatible with the HR44.

    For RF mode this is true, but for IR, it works with all models.

    Sort of, it's both thicker and wider than the peanut.

    I like it, and waiting to buy from Solid Signal for other DVR's. Not available yet externally.
