Thanks JB. That's probably it; I don't remember seeing an FCC label and it is probably a RC65x (have to check when I get home). Really valuable info; I owe you.JBv said:The HR21 definitely supports RF...and no external antenna needed. Is your remote an RC65R remote? (I believe the current ones being sent out are RC65R, RC65RX, and RC65RBX)
If it has an R after the model number and an FCC label on the back it's an RF remote. The RC65 and RC65X are not RF remotes.
I think this means I will be buying a new remote; RF is reaally t*ts; I can be slobbering on a rack of ribs and lean over and press a button on the remote laying on the table with my one non-greasy pinky finger and change channels; I don't have to pick it up and aim it like a Glock .
