and will it work with the RC65RX remote?
My HR24-100 came with a RC65RX and I use it in RF mode. All of my receivers are in RF mode.
My H24 that the DirecTV installer put in last week came with the RC65X.
Did he give me the wrong remote?
No, that remote should work with the H24. It's not a RF remote though.
The H24 is compatible with the RC65RX but all non-DVR HD receivers come with IR-only remotes.
OK, Does the H24 have a built in antenna or do you have to use an external one?
You do not have to use an external antenna, nor is there anywhere to attach one.
Thanks Stuart, I started to answer but realized the original question was for the HR, but the new question was for the H. Having never seen a H24 I had to go back and look at the First Look for the answer to be sure. Of course by then you had already answered.
To my knowledge, the only Hx2x requiring an external antenna is the H20-100.
H20-600's if any are still in use also have an external RF antenna
So do HR20-100's.
Oh well, they say that memory is the second thing to go. Thanks for the corrections
Yeah...the last one I had before sending it back had one of those "CB antennas" on it too... :lol:
I've put in several H24's that would not work with the accompanied RC65RX remote. I have to use spare RC65R's or RC24's to get RF to work.
Doesn't the H24 come with the RC65X (IR-only), not the RC65RX (IR+RF)?
That's the way I've heard it too but there is always a possibility that some h24s come with RC65RX remotes instead.
I just got 2 units installed: one HR24-100 and one H24-100.
The HR24-100 was originally setup with the RC65RX remote in IR mode. The H24-100 was originally setup with the RC65X remote under IR mode as well.
I tried to swap them. My H24-100 unit is in my master room closet and no line of sight for IR. So I want to use RF mode on it. I tried to use the RC65RX remote and follow the on screen instructions to activate that mode. It won't connect. Is there a possibility that I would need to reset the remote (if there is such thing)? What am I missing? I even used new batteries. I also tried to use the RF mode on the HR unit just to make sure it works for troubleshooting purposes and that wouldn't work either. Bad remote?
You know... I probably didn't even look. I just assumed that the 24's all came with RF remotes. That's pretty stupid... Now I'm embarrassed haha. I think the heat and working 6 days a week are getting to my head :hurah::hurah::hurah:
To reset the remote hold down mute & select until the green light at the top blinks twice.
Enter the code 981 -> The light should blink 4x. Remote is now back to factory settings.
Make sure you aren't missing the step in programming the remote where you hit channel up. I do it all the time.
