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.
Is there a FCC sticker on the back of the Rc34? If so then it is RF.JasonVW said: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?
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.kram said: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?
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....Edmund said:Is there a FCC sticker on the back of the Rc34? If so then it is RF.
Yes, its capable of RF, it has the RF circuitry inside. But it doesn't mean its strictly RF, its IR as well.kram said: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....
They'll service it, yes, but unless you have the extended service plan, you'll be responsible for shippng and/or service calls.JasonVW said: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. 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.Edmund said:Yes, its capable of RF, it has the RF circuitry inside. But it doesn't mean its strictly RF, its IR as well.
