IR. You need the last six digits of the RID to set up RF on the remote. There is no way to set that up as the default.TDK1044 said:Is the HR34 set to IR or RF as default. I know it's very easily changed. Just curious. I currently have two identical DVRs set up in my entertainment Center...one set to IR and one set to RF. I would replace one of them with an HR34.
Which you should get with the HR34, correct?Stuart Sweet said:That is true if you are using an "X" series remote (such as RC65X.)
I think you may be right there. Thinking about it, I can't remember if I got one or not now. :lol:"RunnerFL" said:I got no remote with my HR34 and others have reported the same.
I got one when I got my shipment from Solid Signal, but it was not inside the DirecTV box. Don't know what model it was, I do t think I've ever put the batteries in."RunnerFL" said:I got no remote with my HR34 and others have reported the same.
Yeah, there definitely is no room for a remote inside an HR34 box. I don't think they are coming with one unless you are a new customer, which the HR34 is really only for right now, or you ask the installer for a remote.dpeters11 said:I got one when I got my shipment from Solid Signal, but it was not inside the DirecTV box.

Same thing that happened with me when they installed my HR34 and he gave me an RC65X remote. I gave him my HR24 that died, which was part of the free HR34 deal I got. I offered him my remote for it, an RC64 that I hardly touched. He said no, you can keep it. He didn't want it either.lep354 said:I got one with my HR34, but after saying "I get a new remote, right?" to the installer. He didn't bring one in.
Which is the same for any of the H/HR2x/R22 series receivers...Go Beavs said:FWIW, the HR34's Remote Setup menu walks you through the changeover procedure to convert to RF mode, including telling you the last 6 digits of the RID.
