Question about HR21 and RF

1215 Views 6 Replies 4 Participants Last post by  veryoldschool
I am new to the HR21; just got a HR20 replaced last week.

Try as I might, I can't get it to go into RF mode (this following instructions on the GUI).

What gives? Does the HR21 not support the RF mode?

They also sent (independently) a new white remote, I think it is a "65C" model, if memory serves.

Could it be the remote itself?

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.
All of the current RF remotes DirecTV sends out are backlit too. For $25 you can't beat that.
