HR24 in RF mode double commands?
Posted 03 May 2011 - 08:38 AM
I have an old HR20-100 in my bedroom that I made an RF antenna out of some stripped coax for and it works in RF mode flawlessly, if I can't get this working right I'll have to switch these 2 as the living room gets heavier use.
thanks in advance!!

I don't have this problem.
I do have to adjust the speed I press my buttons between my HR20 and HR24 or H25, because the newer ones are simply faster/more responsive.

Not sure what to say/suggest, as I've had mine for over a year and haven't ever even read a post about this being a problem before.
I've tried pressing the buttons as briefly as possible, makes no difference. My wife is going nuts, I can suffer through it but she doesn't have the patience for it and guests will not know what the heck is going on. What's more frustrating is my old HR20 works so flawlessly in RF mode!

Seems like there is a solution here.
I just ran into this problem last week for the first time. It was also an HR24-500. It had the same symptoms, double commands when ever a remote button was pressed. It was also in RF mode. When we took it out of RF mode, the double presses went away. But this IRD was in the customers' wiring closet, and required RF capability. So we hunted him down a new HR24, which remedied the problem.

This is a newer remote that I got to replace an older IR-only remote.
Manufacturer defect on the new remotes?

I'll know for sure tonight if the problem is gone as I intend to spend some time adding back in my scheduled shows and that is the easiest way to see the problem, as you try to put in "House" and you end up with "HHHOOUSEE".
