    Cant remember which one it is. The old school one for the HR20. I have it programmed for the tv (58" Panasonic plasma) and the box. It'll turn both on and off like it should and even control the volume so I think I have the right code. But for some reason, it wont change tv inputs. Not enough of a problem to warrant spending a ton on a Harmony so I was just wondering if this was a common problem.

    To activate the tv input button, a separate code is entered after you program the remote for your TV.

    I'm pretty sure the code is 9-6-0 and let me post the procedure in a few minutes when i find it online.

    I believe it is the same for the older RC32 and the newer RC64 remotes.

    SETTING UP THE TV INPUT KEY
    Once you have setup the DIRECTV Remote control for your
    TV, you can activate the TV INPUT key so you can change the
    “source”—the piece of equipment whose signal is
    displayed on your TV:
    1. Slide the MODE switch to the TV position.
    2. Press and hold the MUTE and SELECT keys until the
    green light under the TV position flashes twice, then
    release both keys.
    3. Using the number keys enter 9-6-0. (The green light
    under the TV position flashes twice.)
    You now can change the input for your TV.

    Sorry to bump this back into the rotation....I tried the instructions provided and still nothing. Its not enough of a hassle that it justifys bying a Harmony but its just enough to get under my skin.

    Any other thoughts?

    Try the other codes for your TV if there is another code that works the TV it might also work the input button.

    But don't reenter the 960 procedure, it only has to be entered once, doing it again will turn the feature off.

    Thanks all. Would it help if I reset the remote and started fresh before I try this? I think I have turned the 960 on and off three times.

    Well it couldn't hurt. Also it's possible that the remote you're using doesn't have a full set of codes for HR20s.

    If you're looking for a decent low-cost remote for DIRECTV receivers, check out this thread:

    DBSTalk member Steve has come up with what he feels is the perfect DIRECTV remote, and it's only $18!

    Is there a way to see what code is programmed in to a remote. I changed from an IR to RF remote and the code I used to program RF one doesn't work as well as the one in the IR remote. And I don't remember the code I used :)

    RF doesn't use remote codes, it uses the last 6 digits of the receiver ID # found on a sticker in the access card compartment, which there is only one of, so you cant use one thats better.
