My replacement that was installed today came with the RC34 remote control. It looks identical to the RC24, however the buttons are slightly larger. I think the options are identical.

Hmm..
I knew there was an RC34 in the works... but I didn't know it was completed or actually out there yet.

Cool.
Thanks for the update.

Mine came with an RC24. Can someone tell me what the differences are?

I just called D* and they don't even know anything about the RC34. Did you folks purchase your HR20s from a retailer or from D*? D* also said that in order to use the RC32RF you have to buy an RF antenna for the HR20. Is this true?

I just got my new HR20 today. It came with the RC34 as well. I was hoping (assuming?) that this would be RF capable, but I guess not??

So, I just need to call DTV and pay them $25 for the RC32RF?

Thanks.

Is there a FCC sticker on the back of the Rc34? If so then it is RF.

DirecTV brought my replacement HR20 today (Installer) and it came with a RC34. My earlier post has a picture of it... It has all the same options as the RC24 with the exception of larger buttons.

Does the presence of an FCC sticker mean that the remote is RF-capable? I have an RC24 with an FCC sticker on the back of it. The installer programmed it as IR during setup....

Yes, its capable of RF, it has the RF circuitry inside. But it doesn't mean its strictly RF, its IR as well.

I guess I have one too - came with the box from Best But. It has a better feel and the buttons are more responsive.

I don't see an FCC sticker just a number 2 die (as is dice) sticker on the battery cover.

Also, I paid $250 for the HR20 and I am told thats just a lease??

Does that mean if the HD goes bad that they will replace for free?

Thanks!
They'll service it, yes, but unless you have the extended service plan, you'll be responsible for shippng and/or service calls.

Thanks. That's good to know. It doesn't say anything about it in the guide that came with the HR20. I guess I can program it as an RF, then.:)

Everyone who has a remote with an FCC sticker on the back should try to program it for RF and see if it works.

The antenna is internal to the HR20 so you already have it.
