    I have bought a second HD DVR and tried to program the remote to AV 1 or AV 2 and it won't take. Any experience remote people out there for some helpful tips?

    Thanks for all answers.

    Thanks Edmund,

    I still can't get er done. The link refers to an "R15" and I have two HR 20's if that makes a difference.

    Any other suggestions would help.

    Thanks,

    John

    IR or RF mode?
    I have both of my HR-20s set to RF and use one remote for both. I have only needed to folllow the on screen guide to get it to work.

    FWIW: when I screw up I've needed to reset the remote and start over.

    Will I need anything in addition to these 2 items to get going with RF functionality? I had read the HR20-100 series has an external RF thing-a-ma-jigg, as opposed to the internal one provided w/700 series.

    Well yes those are what you need to get it to work.
    Now if you don't have these [and should have gotten them with your unit], you might do what I did & call D*, there is a RF remote "kit" that has a RF remote & antenna. They sent me one of these [for free] and it came with a back-lit remote too, so I can see it in the dark. :D

    I found the antenna in the original packing box, but no other remote. I'm sure I can get the RC34 from D*.
