I was wondering if anyone (Earl, etc) knows about the RC64 remote listed on DirecTV's website? Thank you.

Looking at the .pdf file of it, it looks like an update of the RC34. Looks like about a billion new codes in it. Also has codes that will control TV/VCR & TV/DVD combo units. Also looks like it has some more codes to try to control my Olevia TV. :) Now I just need to get my hands on one. :grin:

They wont help any of the remotes you already have, just the rc64 when released.

If they would add a learning function to their remotes a lot of problems would be solved. I have a 15yo stereo which will never have a code assigned for it.

By comparison, the manual for the rc32 has about 6 pages of TV codes. The 64 is nearly double with about 11 pages. :)

And it can search for codes! With so many non-names being made by so many other people, its hard to find the right cross reference list.

Cheers,

The RC64RB is the Backlit RF model, I think.

I had found the pdf file but can't find the remote for sale or details on the DTV site.

Anyone know where that is?

Besides the new codes, any difference between this and the RC32 line?

Does anyone know when the RC64 will be available? It lists the codes for my TV that the older remotes don't have.

All, I just received the RC64RB and I will report back on its functionality.

I got it by calling D* last week and saying I didn't get shipped the RF antenna and remote. And I received it today.

I also just received mine today. I called and requested the RF remote with antenna kit and that is the one they sent me. Just about to set it up now.
