    I have an HR44 but the RC71 remote is not working with it. The RC65 is. When I try to edit the remote control settings the IR/RF option is grayed out.

    How do I get the RC71 to work with the HR44?

    I'd first try a reset - - Mute / Select then 981 should put it in IR.

    Reset the HR44? Is that what the combination does or does it reset the remote? Also, I'd like the HR44 to be in both RF and IR at the same time, if that's possible.

    My post was to reset the remote. The 44 is in IR / RF mode all the time. . . . only to the RC71 class of remotes in RF.
