Making a slight adjustment in how you press the buttons is suggested. Perhaps a touch slower and firmer.
Yeah, I have been trying that, but no luck. I wish my Harmony remote was RF as it is a much better remote than the Directv one. I would look into an RF Harmony, but I wonder if the problem is more with how the HR24-500 responds with RF remotes in general.
it seems like you will benefit from a double reboot in a 30 minute window
Thank you, I am going to try this.
I have 3 HR24-500's. They remote response in RF mode was exactly as you described. The fix for me was to use the nextgen RF remote extender. This little device works like a champ and fixes what Directv could not.
Thanks, it's good to know it's not just my HR24-500. Is that the Directv one, the one with 71 in the name?
Put it in IR mode. I had the same problems and that solved them. If that doesn't work, flush the Guide data by rebooting twice in quick succession.
Thanks, yeah IR works perfectly. I was hoping to use the RF mode as the receiver is in a cabinet, plus it's in the bedroom so it's nice not having to point directly at the receiver.
