    I currently have a HR24-100 and a HR34 Genie connected to a Mitsubishi WD73C8 TV. I have 2 remotes programmed to operate both boxes and TV volume / input functions independently. I recently added a Samsung UN32EH5300F(Costco) TV to my patio. It is used on occasion. I ran an HDMI cable from the HR24 location to the Samsung. When I want to use the Samsung I swap the HDMI from the Mits to the one for the Sammy.. I programed a third remote for dedicated use on the patio Samsung. I have tried to program/add the TV volume and input functions with no luck. Is it possible to program two remotes to the same HR24 and have each operate TV functions for a different brand of TV? I type in the proper model# but get a "sorry" failure screen. Any direction would be helpful.

    Turn off the receiver, just do the following on the third remote to program it for samsung:

    1. tv
    2. press and hold MUTE & SELECT, wait for two blinks, release
    3. enter 1 0 8 1 2

    If you haven't programmed the tv INPUT key:

    1. tv
    2. press and hold MUTE & SELECT, wait for two blinks, release
    3. enter 9 6 0

    Yes, if the receiver and first remote is in rf mode, then just do the following on second RF remote:

    1. dtv
    2. press and hold MUTE & SELECT, wait for two blinks, release
    3. enter 0 0 0 0 1
    4. press and hold MUTE & SELECT, wait for two blinks, release
    5. enter 9 6 1
    6. press CH UP
    7. enter last 6 digits of Receiver ID #(RID), found on a sticker in the access card compartment
    8. press SELECT


    If the receiver is in IR mode, it might control the receiver out of the box, if not, then enter right IR address from 00001-00008 that your receiver is set to.

    1. dtv
    2. press and hold MUTE & SELECT, wait for two blinks, release
    3. enter 0 0 0 0 1 or 0 0 0 0 2, or 0 0 0 0 3 and so on

    I have 2 remotes for my HR24. I have one programmed to use the AV receiver and surround sound and the other to just use the TV speakers for sound.
    All I had to do was program in the TV, then the AVR on the first remote.
    On the second remote I programmed in the TV and stopped there.
    When I am watching the stock market I do not need surround sound and sub woofer so I just use the TV.
    Watching movies, etc. I use the remote that controls the AVR.
    Before I use the remote with the AVR I turn the sound on the TV way down so I can't hear it. I do that because if I mute it the TV puts and Icon on the screen that hops up and down the left side of the screen.

    I had this for my HR23 until it died a week ago. I did not have to change anything to use them with the HR24.

    I want to program an old RC24 remote just to use for a Insignia tv only.

    Can this be done? or Does it have to be programmed to a Direct receiver 1st?

    You can't prevent it from having a directv code programmed in, after a reset its programmed with code 00001. If you don't want it to control a current model of directv receiver, just program rca sat code 00392 or sony 00639.

    The rc24 is pretty old, it may not have the insignia code your tv uses? try codes 10463, 10150, or 10054.

    And the rc24 the tv menu keys are blank on purpose for ALL tv codes.

    If you've tried another RF remote and fresh batteries, it could be the receiver having problems. Can you use IR?

    I have 3 remotes all for my hr44, 2 are programmed universal remotes operating in IR and one is a new RC71 and its in RF mode. All are working great with the HR44, but the RC71 needs to control the volume on my Pioneer AVR. How can I program the RC71 to do that and not mess up anything else?

    Edmund, you know what the 2 universal remotes are ;). Still love those ur7 gamers.

    You should be able to go through the remote setup menus with the RC71 and set the volume lock to the AVR. The HR44 should program the remote for you in RF mode without messing up the IR remotes.

    I tried Program Remote, Program Audio Device but my Pioneer VSX1020k isn't listed. When I tried the Model Not Found and Don't Know Model it keeps telling me that there was an issue... It said attempting code 1 of 28 but never moves to past Attempting Code 1, even if I hit Try Again. Even if I try a similar model, it fails.

    You know I've got that model AVR but I've just been using the TV volume as I've not gotten around to hooking up the speakers since mounting the TV on the bedroom wall.
    Maybe I can find some time to play with it tonight and also rummage around to see if anyone else has had such a problem.

    Let me know if you have better luck. Directv has 648 Pioneer codes, you'd think that the VSX1020 would be in the list, and it used to be in the list. I think there's a software issue at play because it won't even try the 28 codes it grabs when you select I Don't Know My Model.
