HR44 and programming RC71 for TV in IR mode
Posted 21 September 2013 - 04:09 PM
My glitchy HR34 was swapped out today for and HR44, and so far so good, but when trying to program the RC71 remote to work my TV, I don't even get the option to program it to other devices. When it's on "program remote" and I hit select on the RC71 remote, it takes me to a screen that only gives me the choice of programming it to IR or RF. However, If I pick up the old remote, and select "program remote", the next screen that comes up lets me select another device. Do I have a defective remote, HR44, or am I missing something really simple? Thanks in advance!

You need to put the RC71 in RF mode first and then you'll be able to program the TV mode.

Yeah.....I Googled it after I posted and after a little searching, found that out. The tech said he didn't even know how to do it, which seemed odd.

you can press and hold MUTE and ENTER for about 4 seconds to put the RC71 in RF mode.
