To recap my Sunday install:
The install went perfect. Installed an HR44-200 Genie and an SWM-16. Quite a mild surprise when I found out that the HR44 has a wireless capability...helps get rid of my remote internet box and a bunch of extra wires!
So far,I love the new HR44 (very fast) and the new RF controller (much more user friendly)!
With regards to the Genie Remote, my guess is that this remote CANNOT be programmed for other devices (Blue Ray/DVD/ETC.), like the Universal remote can?
My Genie remote is programmed with my TV for volume and Input change, but that is pretty much it, where on the Universal remote, I could have full function of my TV (Menu/Format/etc.)...
Thank you for all of your input over the past week...it was greatly appreciated!
Correct. The RC71 (in your case) can only operate the HR44/C41 and either the TV volume or AVR/SB volume plus TV input
