Thank you, I am going to try this.
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?
It is this http://www.amazon.co...r/dp/B000C1Z0HA
That looks like a pretty cool device. Thanks for the link.
Apparently, it's the 24-500s that have the problem. I see no such problems with my 24-100s or my 24-200. In fact, I only have the problem on two 24-500s that are connected to the same SWM16. Texasbrit and I discussed this and he couldn't see what the SWM had to do with it. Still seems strange to me that three other 24-500s on another SWM16 don't have this problem, but we hit a dead end and the discussion stopped. Still don't know what caused the problem in the first place.
You really get a stronger signal with the remote in IR and you don't have to point it directly at the HR. But I have one 24-100 that refuses to work in RF and that's in a room where I have to move it a lot to get the IR remote to work. That HR gets used as a server.
Interesting. I used to have a HR20-700 and the RF mode worked fine with that one. It is strange that your 2 24-500's on the same SWM16 had the problem but your others didn't.
Just a quick update. I did a red button reset and so far, the RF mode has been working pretty well.
