    Thanks

    Can't seem to get the hr34 to accept rf. Can I program a remote to control them both in IR mode?

    I want to use an old Directv remote RC24 in RF with a HR24-500 can this work?

    If yes then how do I program the remote?

    Sure, if the hr34 is set to default IR codeset 00001, leave it set to it. Then do the following on the hr24 remote:

    1. av1
    2. press and hold MUTE & SELECT, wait for two blinks, release
    3. enter 0 0 0 0 1


    Now slide back to Directv device on the hr24 remote, enter the menu of the hr24:

    1. menu> setting & help> settings> remote control> IR/RF setup>

    2. you will see either IR or RF, click whichever to reveal both

    3. chose IR, and press continue

    The remote will no longer control the hr24 via the directv device, do the following:

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

    Now cover the hr34 for now, and scroll down to Advanced setups in the menu of the hr24, which is still tuned to on the tv:

    1. click Advanced SETUP
    2. press DASH
    3. click on Receiver 1, scroll to Receiver 2
    4. press continue
    5. slide to DTV device and exit the menu

    My HR21 is set to RF and the remote is damaged. How do I get the HR21 back to IR without a remote?

    Try code 31254, forget about powering it ON & OFF, not with rca's use two key power scheme, you won't be able to do both.

    To get the volume, with a tv code programmed to the tv device, do the following:

    1. av1 or av2
    2. press and hold MUTE & SELECT, wait for two blinks, release
    3. enter 9 9 3
    4. press SELECT

    This has probably been addressed before, but the search function is not helping me, and I cannot find my question addressed in the DirecTV manuals.

    I need to control my H24 by RF, since it is located in a closet behind the TV, but the TV only has IR remote capibilities (which only makes sense, because why would anyone not have LOS to the TV?).

    I know that the RC65R can only control the DirecTV receiver in RF or IR mode, but not both. If I set the RC65R to control the H24 in RF mode, will it still turn the TV on and off and control the volume on the TV (normally, pass-through features on DirecTV remotes), and will the remote do that without having to slide the switch from DirecTV to TV?

    Yes, RF only affects the receiver everything else works normally.

    Recently a few of my keys are getting kind of sticky. That is, when depressed they are slow to spring back to original position. Any simple fix for this?

    Not that simple but you can disassemble the remote and clean it. The procedure is located in the Remote FAQ located here: http://apicdn.viglink.com/api/click?format=go&key=e652088f26975de9b83439c1dd935df0&loc=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.dbstalk.com%2Fshowthread.php%3Ft%3D200024&out=http%3A%2F%2Fhr20.dbstalk.com%2Fdocs%2FRemoteFAQ.pdf&ref=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.dbstalk.com%2Fforumdisplay.php%3Ff%3D115

    My RC64RB is getting sticky keys like the one above. Rather than going through the process of trying to clean the sticky keys I found another remote, the RC64R, in my closet. It is set to RF and I want to return it to IR as I have recently converted my receivers back to IR. I have not figured out how to do this. Can someone help here?

    EDIT: Never mind. The PDF explained it although the section on the 9** entries doesn't repeat that you have to start with "mute+select" to recognize the 9** entries. I'm a little slow mentally and eventually remembered that I always started a remote programming sequence with those keys.

    I will probably be back though as I am now going to try to get the thing to control my Denon receiver for the audio. The on-screen instructions are slightly out of whack as I have been through this exercise many times in the past and doing it exactly like the instructions say doesn't work. It's missing a key or a sequence or something. If anyone knows what I am talking about please do reply.

    I have a Pioneer receiver (VSX-517) that I would like to be able to control with the DTV remote, but none of the listed codes in the remote wizard work for me? Can someone point me to an alternate code? I will allow the TV to control the volume so I only need the DTV remote to power on (and off) the receiver itself. I have done plenty of google-ing and been unable to figure it out.

    Thanks!

    the pioneer code 31023, the only power key that will control it is the middle PWR key in the av1 or av2 device. The ON & OFF keys are strictly for tv's and sat/dvrs's.
