Is this still true? My Samsung remote doesn't have many of the DirecTV's functions.
The new RC71 genie remote will be the standard for RVU tv installations as soon as it is more available.
The Genie been out a year and half. If RC71 hasn't happen by now, I doubt if they ever make 'em freely available to Genie owners.
Ten years from we'll be looking at four color buttons and wondering why they have no functions.
Wow, Drucifer, I guess you haven't seen this: http://www.directv.com/technology/remotes
The rc71 Genie Remote is rolling out with the hr44...you can get one now, although they are in relatively short supply.
Customer support mentioned I needed the RC70. Stuart, The RC71 will be compatable on an RVU setup (Samsung)? They mentioned that the RC70 was for RVU systems & the RC71 was for the new HR44.
The RC70 was a VERY short lived RVU remote. As for the RC71 and Samsung RVU support, see thread http://www.dbstalk.com/topic/205039-rc71-remote-control-now-support-samsungsony-rvu-clients/
If worst comes to worst and you can't talk them into it you can just order a RC71, DIRECTV and SolidSignal both have them.
Yeah, the RC71 replaces the RC70 for RVU setups for the Samsung and Sony TVs. The RC71 is also the remote shipped with the HR44/C41.
Customer support is wrong. The RC70 is no longer made. The RC71 can be programmed to control both Samsung and Sony RVU TVs with this procedure: http://forums.solidsignal.com/showthread.php/4500-TIP-Program-your-RC71-remote-to-control-your-RVU-TV
I have tried this and it works.
What button do you select to have the RC71 control the volume of your AVR as opposed to the TV?
Wonder what the reason was of them to remove AV1, AV2, and TV. With this remote I couldn't use it to operate my blu ray player it looks. Nor can I use it change inputs it appears. Also the play and pause button was combined not allowing you to see how much time remains in the show you are watching. And for new installs on the genie they are giving customers instructions for the old remote in the tips and tricks booklet instead of the new remote which is going to cause confusion. -.-
You are able to change TV inputs.
I can't change inputs when the remote is setup with a Samsung code 54000
Press and hold enter till it pops up the input selection and then you should be able I adjust inputs. That's not working on your model? If so it needs to get fixed.
YES YES YES. Over all it works for me. The 44 that it came with is a big step forward.
Hey guys , I just bought one of these RC71 I'm going to use it on my HR34, Don't care about RF. What is it you guys don't like about it? I see so many votes that say NO!
Looks or function? I should have mine today or Monday
According to a Solid Signal installers' blog, this remote is only for hotels. It's not available to the public.
I mean that the 70h is only for hotels. The 71 is the remote for customers.
The reason I don't like it is on the older remotes i could program my TV, A/V receiver, and another DVR all on one. Can't do it on this one. Sometimes progress isn't all it cracked up to be.
I tried that. Do you have a Samsung? Perhaps it works with the Sony's I'm using code #54000. The enter button does function so i know the key does work.
