That explains it.. I switched our HR24 in the living room (which is close to a Panasonic Plasma as well) over to RF because I just through the IR range was weak. Hadn't thought of the plasma interfering with the signal.

Not too familiar with the 890, but it appears it's RF capable as well, so you should be able to pick up the RF receiver and emitters, and that should take care of the issue for you.

It would be great if the 890's RF remote would work with a DirecTV DVR, but no, sorry. The RF systems are incompatible. Everyone's is. Bose uses a RF remote, too, and that doesn't work with either DirecTV or Harmony. There is no standardization for either the codes or the RF carrier frequency these systems use.

Not entirely true about everyone's RF is incompatible. Here is a [link] to a thread discussing the Acoustic Research XSight ARRX18G that is compatible with the DIRECTV RF (w/o using an RF to IR extender).

On the Harmony issue, I have a 659 and my LCD definitely interferes with the IR signal. When I have the back-light setting too low on my LCD, my Harmony and DIRECTV remote won't work at all. So I have to keep it set at a higher level then I want, to keep everything working. Also, when there is a very dark scene on, my remotes won't work. I have to wait for a brighter scene to do anything.
