continuing remote control issues..

If your remote has an "R" suffix, it is RF capable, such as RC64R. You just need to go in the system setup menu to change it over. As far as your comments about your HR not responding, many of us experience that. Another issue is that my Harmony remote does a double command with each button press. I think it gets worse when I have two recordings going and possibly the guide is updating.
for the past week or so i have had continuing problems getting my hr21-700 to respond to the remote control. it's not the batteries, i put brand new ones in and am still having the problem. the box either only accepts half the commands i put in, or none at all. from reading other threads i tried the RBR and it works, but for diminishing amounts of time. at this point i have to RBR 2or 3 times a day. is there any solution for this? would a RF remote work better?
The only other thing that has been mentioned is if you have an LCD, it might interfere with the IR command. If you do have one, you might try shielding your HR from your LCD and see if that helps.

Reposition the directv device so it is further in front of the TV
Reposition the directv device so it has a shelf between the TV and device
Turn the backlight down on the TV

I finally tracked it down to interference from my plasma tv (which had been there from day one, so it took me a while to narrow it down). Moving my HR into an enclosed shelving system and adding an ir blaster (hotlink pro) ALL of my problems went away. I've been up and running for almost a year and a half without a single recurrance of the problem.
