    I currently had two HR24-100 installed yesterday and the remotes have been setup for 2 of my televisions...Both are Insignia's...one 18 inch another 32 inch...

    The problem I am having is that when I hit the top left OFF button that is supposed to turn my television AND reciever off...only the receiver turns off and not the television...I need to slide the tab to TV then hit the power button...

    Is there anything I can do to get the remote to turn both the TV and Receiver off at the same time when I hit the top left OFF button...

    Thanks for any feedback...

    Sounds like you need to try out some other remote codes for your TV and see if they work.

    Otherwise it might just be that your TV doesn't have discreet power on and off codes and it might never work.

    got the right code that WASN'T supplied on the HR24-100 setup...
    works fine...but I have another question...

    I have an RC65X, which to my understanding can be run by RF mode, correct?
    Well, I go through the setup for RF mode, but it won't work. Any suggestions? It is for my HR24-100 which also should have a built in antenna, right?

    Only HR20-100, H20-100 and I think H20-600s used an external antenna.

    RC64X is IR only.
    RC64RX is the RF version.

    The "X" in RC64X signifies that it can have two-way IR communication with the DVR/Receiver for remote programming.

    The RC64 is just a plain standard Universal-produced remote that requires code entry to be programmed.

    RF mode on my HR24s seem very sensitive/touchy. I did not have this problem with my HR22. It seems that a normal button press will likely get you two presses/commands on the receiver. If I try to do short quick presses on the remote you can wind up woth 0/1/2 presses on the receiver. It is extremely frustrating while surfing the guide our trying to do searches. Anyone else experience this or have any advice to offer? Again, my HR22 does not demonstrate this behavior. It is much more reliable.

    Buttons - 'BACK' and '˂'

    They seem to do the same function on everything I tried. So are these another remote buttons redundancy?

    There a a few places that "<" doesn't work, such as the alpha grid in Smart Search and when the info banner is up.

    I am listening to the radio right now, but is it not true that while in the menus using the < moves you back through them but using the "back" button swaps the last channel you were on?

    The Previous (PREV) button swaps the last channel (or recording) that you were on.

    yep, crap, I always thought of the prev button as the back button. I am out of this conversation. After looking at the remote, I have never used the back button for anything.

    I don't either. In the few places that "<" doesn't work, I just use exit.

    Does anyone know if THIS remote is compatible with the H25? The site says it only works with H24/HR24 and PRECEDING receivers but I wanted to double check and be sure.

    EDIT: Link redirects to solidsignal's main page for some reason, sorry.

    Your link goes to solidsignal's main page. Still, if it's compatible with H24, it should work fine with H25. Probably their text hasn't been updated.

    Huh...that's odd. At any rate it was for the RC65RB. I figured the remote probably would work, just wanted to make sure.

    It won't control the H25 via RF without special RF kit, since the small H25 chassis is missing certain RF circuitry that previous RF receivers have built-in. The kit comes with RF remote, so don't buy the separately sold remote,unless you want to control the receiver via IR, then there won't be any trouble.

    ;)I have a Harmony One controlling my HR20-700 and Bose speakers, Apple TV, Blue Ray player, etc. Someone suggested I unclutter the room by putting the components in an adjacent closet and use a wireless repeater. I was wondering if anyone had any experience with using one of these with Directv and Harmony? I read on a couple of web sites that Directv has issues with wireless repeaters. Any help would be appreciated greatly!http://www.dbstalk.com/images/smilies/wink.gif
