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.
