Defining features of the Xsight Touch (ARRX18G) include: • 2.2-inch color touch screen with slider control • IR (infrared) and RF (433 MHz radio frequency) operation, the latter for controlling DIRECTV boxes and components hidden in a cabinet or out of the remote's line of sight (requires $99.99 ARRE433B RF Extender Kit)http://www.audiovox...._200901074.html
It specifically mentions DirecTV boxes. Why mention DirecTV if it didn’t natively support DirecTV RF. Further it says “for controlling DIRECTV boxes and
components hidden in a cabinet” which I also think implies native RF support for DirecTV receivers.
IMHO, this coupled with the info originally supplied to Stuart means they definitely intended
to have native RF support. However, with all the delays I have to wonder if something isn’t working out very well.
Maybe URC has a problem with it.
I'm assuming that URC came up with the method of using the RID to allow use of RF on multiple receivers.
I hope the XSight Touch comes out with DirecTV.
Since it costs 1.66¢ to produce a penny, my 2¢ worth is really 3.32¢ worth. That 3.32¢ is my own and not the 3.32¢ of DIRECTV, Dish, or anyone else for that matter.
