The batteries that come free with the remote are not heavy duty... so make sure you use new alkaline batteries.

all other functions on remote seem to be working except for TV power on. Will Try the battery thing but both remotes at exact same time morning of new SW load? Cant belive the sw of the HR20 could affect remote not turning on TV

Noticed in the last week two remote RC24 erratic behavior---both batteries almost shot for both HR20s. I wonder if using RF (I do) reduces life that quickly. I have only have the HR20s for two months.

I changed batteries still same exact behavour. I dont understand why a software upgrade would change way remote works with the TV???

May try BUT THIS worked since Sept when I had the systems installed. Dont understand why it would quit working. I have 3 other remotes in house 2 for other HR20 and one for the 19 in samsung and old DTV rcvr. Will see If I can reprogram them to control the TV correctly.

Problem fixed. Removed batteries. Reprogrammed remote based on user manual.
