    Just received my new backlit remote for an Hr20-700. The 2 remote codes for all DTV hd DVR's in the instruction manual will not work. I have also tried the others just to see. Tried searching forum, could not find anything.
    Any help would be great.
    Thanks.

    Could you have been setup got RF before? The new remote should IR enabled.

    If its new remote with an old receiver, try the following:

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

    Try remote, if doesn't work, continue:


    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
