    I have completely lost IR control of my HR24. I have tried RBR and complete power down without any success. I have access via the front panel buttons. How would I go about doing a menu reset without the remote and the "-" button?

    Any other ideas what could bring me back to controlling the box again?

    I don't have an hr-24 but if you're talking about the standard reset then open the access card door and press the red button.

    Edit: sorry, didn't see the you tried rbr on first reading. That's what happens when you respond from a mobile device :)

    Do you have a LCD tv? They can block IR commands.

    Just trying different ideas.
