    The 'Universal RF Remote', listed at $25, is described as being backlit.

    Perhaps they dropped the RC64R from their lineup and are just carrying the RC64RB ?

    The RC32RF is NOT even made anymore - it was replaced with the RC64RB, which is ALSO backlit. I have them myself, & I keep several on hand to sell to clients... ;) ;)

    Correct, you cannot get an RF remote non-backlit on directv's website right now.

    The RC64RB and NFL remotes are also backlit ;)

    Bah. you'd think the "flagship" receiver would come with their best remote. But alas, all I get is the RC64R.

    Don't get me wrong, it's a great remote, but aside from the backlighting, it'd be better if the DVR controls and 4-way pad were swapped, like the TiVo remote.

    Curt:

    Completely off topic, but I put your location into Google Maps and it pulls up a street view of a house in Ogden Utah... and the cops are parked out front.

    ...something you're not telling us? lol

    The "B" is for back light or back lit.
