Anyone know of a workaround for my newest dilemma? Had to replace my Philips Directivo with a R15. I already have a HR20 in the same room and now with the R15 and the HR20 nearby both respond to the same remote codes. Is there a way to get the individual units to respond to remote codes from a specific remote?

Thanks!

Choose which one you want to work with the remote on DirecTV mode.

Then cover that IR on that one (or unplugg it).

Then go into the Setup->Remote on the other unit.
And follow the instructions to set it up on the AV1/AV2 setting.

The DVR Plus line has two distinct IR codes.

Thanks Edmund for the link and for the help. Here is a recap of what worked for me with my HR20 and my R15. All the credit for the following instructions goes to thekochs and again to Edmund over at RemoteCentral.com.

HR20 First:
1) Make sure your Directv remote control's MODE switch is on the DIRECTV logo
2) In the HR20 go to Menu>Settings>Setup>Remote>IR/RF
3) Select IR and proceed with the hold [MUTE]+[SELECT], then 961, then [PgDn] button selection. This will set the Directv receiver to IR
4) Go ahead on remote and hold [MUTE]+[SELECT] again, then type 00001. This puts 00001 as the code set for this remote when in the DIRECTV MODE position.
5. Turn off your HR20 before proceeding to the next step.

R15 Next:
1) MODE switch on your Directv remote is on the DIRECTV logo...power on the R15.
2) In the R15 go to the Menu>Settings>Setup>Remote>Receiver Mode. You will see either DIRECTV or AV1/AV2, click on whatever you see to reveal both at the same time. Press AV1/AV2. At this point the remote will not work so you will need to go to the R15 unit's front panel and use the arrow buttons to select [DONE] on the screen. You have now set the R15 to understand the codes that are sent from the AV1/AV2 MODE position on your remote control.
3)Now slide the MODE switch to the AV1 position on the remote control and hold the [MUTE]+[SELECT] buttons again and then type 00002. This puts 00002 as the code set for this remote when it's in the AV1 MODE postion.

Done...Now your Directv remote should control your HR20 when the MODE switch is set on the DIRECTV logo and when the MODE switch is slid over to AV1 it will control your R15. See the more detailed post of what I did above.

Thanks Earl

Directv CSR I talked to earlier yesterday before posting here didn't seem to know about the two different IR codes (00001 and 00002). I knew there had to be a way and I knew this was the place to ask.

Also, instead of covering the IR on the first unit I programmed I just turned off that receiver at the front panel and then went about re-programming the other receiver with the second IR code and the Directv remote's MODE switch in the AV1 position.
