    I have an HR44-700 setup for rf in the same room as a HR24-500, i have read you cant turn off ir on the hr44 but is there a way to block the ir remote sensor on the front of the receiver? if so how and where is the sensor located at?

    Go into Remote Setup on the HR24, choose Advanced,
    the wording says for 3 or more receivers in the same room. It is wrong it is for 2 or more. Tell it that this receiver is receiver #2. Follow the instructions for setting it's individual remote to control #2.

    The remote sensor on the HR44 is located 1/4 of a inch to the right of the DIRECTV cyclone logo on the front panel. It's rectangular and measures 3/4'' x 1/2''. You can cover it with black electricians tape to block the signal coming from the remote.
