    Just switched to an RF remote in one of my rooms, I believe I was having IR interference from the TV (Vizio) as the DVR (HR22) was often non-responsive unless you moved it to within an inch of the IR sensor (did a lot of troubleshooting - ie switched DVRs, switched remotes, new batteries etc, nothing fixed the intermittent/often problem).

    My issue is, the actions of On/Off actions of the remote (RC64 RF version) are strange when in RF mode. The small "on" button will not do anything to the DVR or TV. To turn the TV on, you have to hit the small "off" button rather than the small "on" button. To turn the DVR on, you have to hit the "PWR" button. The small "off" button will turn both the TV and DVR off.

    Seems like bizarre behavior, is this just a flaky remote or is this normal for an RC64 or do I need to try some additional programming (seems like that shouldn't effect the "on" button not working to turn the DVR on)?

    Try the remote from the other Vizio you have and see if the small ON button turns on the TV you are having a problem with.
    You might have a defective remote.

    You could also try some different codes for the Vizio. I have a Samsung that the first code I used worked for all except the volume. The next code I tried worked all correctly.

    Thanks, I tried that (think it was the one I was using) but no change. I'll try a couple of the others tonight, but given the buttons don't even act right with the DVR itself, tells me that it is a remote issue. I'll either just deal with it or by a new RF remote.
