I would like to program 2 different RF remotes to operate the same HR21. Is this possible while still using one of the remotes on another 21 that is located in a different room? I have searched Direct's site and they have options of having 1 remote for several different receivers but cannot find how I can program one of the remotes on AV1 for the other receiver. Sorry if I am not explaining clearly.

Any help is appreciated :confused:

Yes you can. Program both remotes to control the same unit RF. All you have to do is run through the same setup on both remotes and they will both control it RF.

Then change the 2nd HR21 to AV1/AV2 under the remote setup screen in the menu and program it to work either RF or IR with the toggle on the remote moved to AV1.
