    I have 2 R15's with remote control that works in RF and IR mode at the same time? I went to program the RF on my H20 and found out that it would not work simultaneously with IR. Can this be true? Am I doing something wrong. Frustrating!!!

    That is true, unfortunately.

    Alas, this is something that does not work.

    Is it a hardware issue? If not, is there any chance of getting DTV to fix it? Also, how do we make sure they don't downgrade my R15's in a future software release?

    Really mising this feature..wanted to use the D* Remote in another room to watch shows on my HR21 (output over UHF modulator) while using the Harmony in the living room. Would not work.. will have to invest in an IR Transmitter :-(

    Wish they would enable this feature

    Can you suggest such a device? I would like to run my HR21 in RF mode, but my harmony remote only runs in IR mode.

    There are many of them on the market, do a Google search for "remote control extender". :)
