I did a search but couldn't find the answer, I have the hr20-700 and will be gettting a hr21-? this weekend for my wife. Both will be sitting side by side. My question is will there be any issues with the remotes controlling the other unit such as my hr20 remote control recording shows by accident on the hr21 unit when I'm using it to record a show on the hr20?

My hr20 is setup for IR mode.

Thanks for the answer.

You can control both units with IR or RF without a problem.

The HR21 you need to set it to AV1 and program it using code 00003.

Press Menu-->Parental, Fav's, Setup-->System Setup-->Remote-->Receiver Mode-->change to AV1 or AV2-->Done.

Press and hold the select button and mute button until the light blinks two times and press code 00003.

At first yes, you will need to switch one to the alternate codeset, code 00003.

Start by programming AV1 or AV2 device on the remote with code 00003:

1. av1 or av2
2. press and hold MUTE & SELECT for two blinks
3. enter 0 0 0 0 3

Now slide back to the directv device on the remote and enter the menu of the receiver:

1. menu> setup> system setup> remote> receiver mode>

2. you will see either DIRECTV or AV1/AV2, click whichever to reveal both

3. choose AV1/AV2, the remote will quit controlling the receiver, slide to AV1 or AV2 on the remoe whichever has code 00003

4. press Done and exit menu

I'm running the HR-20 and HR-21 side by side.
I didn't enter any code set stuff just set the HR20 in IR Directv mode covered the IR eye on the other box in both cases.

Then I set the HR21 to AV1/AV2 RF mode, all done.
