In any case, HERE's how to set up RF on an H2x.

I looked up the D12... definitely not what I got. Checked the inside panel on the front of the box, and it says H24-200. Also shows H24-200 on the initial Info page that comes up when you get into the system setup menu. What's really weird, is on the H24 DVR box in my living room, when I enter the setup, and go to the remote section, the first time I select it, it only shows "Program Remote" "Copy Settings" and "Reset Remote", but if I hit the "left" arrow key and highlight another feature on the menu, and then go back to "Remote" and select it, the IR/RF setup appears in the available selections. The DVR remote is an RC65RX; looked it up, and it is an IR/RF remote, and it is still set up with the DVR box to work on IR. I tried using it on the bedroom "HD Only" H24 box, and did the same steps, but still can only get the "Program, Copy, Reset" setup menus. I thought maybe the install technician might have done something during the initial setup of the "HD Only" box to disable the IR/RF setup, and wondered if I needed to go redo the initial satellite setup to enable it. I'm a little leery about doing that, cause I don't know if it will help, and I don't want to mess up any of the settings that might cause D* to think the box has been compromised in any way.
When I tried to hook up a back-lighted RC65R to my 200 it took, but didn't work properly. When I hooked up the remote that came with the 200, the RC65RX, it did work properly and went into RF as it should have. I did the same thing to my 24-500 and the RC65R worked perfectly. Apparently, the 200 wants the X remote and the 500 doesn't care.
