    Can the HR24 remote sensor work in both IR and RF simultaneously? Or is it one or the other but not both?

    Only the R15 series SD DVR will support IR and RF remotes at the same time without reconfiguration. Newer, advanced HD receivers don't. ;)

    You can add THR22 HD tivo to the short list, to allow both IR & RF at the same time. Just like the R15/R16, if you don't enable it through the menu.

    Why is that???

    Why can't Directv allow IR and RF on their Newer DVRs?

    IP or RS232 can be used in conjunction with RF or IR

    There's nothing that says they can't. They just haven't. Why? I've got no clue. :grin:

    True. In fact, setting up an R15 to do both involves a clever procedure revealed-where else-right here on DBSTALK! I'm sure it was a software glitch that DirecTV didn't feel was worth correcting.
