    I thought that the new Directv remotes RC71 will work with a HR34 or C31 in IR mode only .
    and RF mode on HR44/C41only.

    On weakness website they also state this, but when i talked to DTV customer service they say they will not work at all with HR34/C31, Only Hr44/C41

    Which is correct?

    RC 71 will operate HR34/ C31 in IR mode, HR 44/ C41 in IR or RF.

    The CSR is wrong. Wouldn't be the first time. I have an rc71 and have observed it working in IR with an HR24.

    My RC 71 seems to work fine with my HR24 and even my old HR20 in IR mode.
