    hi i need help for a friend he had a h20 and was using 3 remotes in rf mode to watch tv on 3 tv"s.. then he needed a new box and got a h21 and now the only remote that works with his box is the r34 that came with the h21. my question is.. is there a compatibilty problem with old rf remotes and the h21? if not how do you use 3 remotes in rf on one h21. thanks for your input on the problem..

    Most likely, you will need to reset all of the remotes first.
    Set the H21 to IR first. Then change it back over to RF, but write down the steps and codes on the screen, as you will want to use the same ones for the other remotes.
    I have used the: RC 24, 32RF, 34, & 64R all with my H21 in RF mode.
    Each receiver uses it's own ID as part of the RF code, so the H20 code doesn't work with your H21 [or another H20].
