    I shut my scrolling affect off from day one, those are super annoying -

    Just did it to my RC65RB & RC65RX - both flashed 4 times. I use both these remotes on my HR24-500 in IR mode (I have to keep it in IR mode for my hava)

    Will see if this helps any....

    thanks op

    All I can say is INCREDIBLE !!

    Not only you fixed my ridiculously slow HR21-100 but you may have actually lowered my blood pressure !

    Not to mention the fact that my wife doesn't plug her ears every time I change the channel from the six to eight cuss words I can get in every time I did. :lol:

    Much better response from my DVR and I am very happy to have seen this post.

    Thank you very much !! :up::up:

    Tried this tip on my slow @#$HR21-700, it does seem to be responding quicker.

    Thanks for the tip Codfishjoe

    Has anyone tried this tip with a Harmony or other learning remote?

    Regards

    I just tried the 963 change and it made a VAST improvement to remote responsiveness on my HR21-100 that was being controlled with an RC64R. I then brought up my Harmony One from the home theater where I control another HR21-100 and they appear to be identical. So at least based on my non-scientific evidence, I don't think that Logitech has been sending the code on the Harmony One anyway. And explains why one TV was always "faster" than the other.

    Thanks, OP!

    This is good. With scrolling off, Native off and this tip, my HR24-500 is now....merely slow ;)

    But every bit helps!

    Need help. Question: Just got a new RC65RB to replace my RC34 so I could have RF. All seems to be OK except with the new lit up remote, it momentarily shuts off the light every time I press a button. Since I press a lot of buttons this is annoying as hell. The remote keeps flashing off and on. Is this the way that this thing is supposed to work?

    I agree with this assessment. It explained why my HR20 in the bedroom seemed slower than the HR22 where the Harmony is. Especially when the opposite was supposed to be true.

    The code is internal to the remote, so it's not receiver dependent.

    OK, I press mute and select, light flashes twice. I press 963, and nothing happens. I press Chan Down and nothing happens. What am I doing wrong?

    Stroudsburg,...
    Will this also get rid of the idiotic message that comes up saying the switch on top of the remote is not set to DVR when ever I want to control something else? I hate that!!!

    The switch on the top of the remote is moved all the way to the left, correct?

    This appears to be code specific to the DirecTV remotes themselves.
    Reset of the HD DVR....???

    Yes.
