I got mine working, the R15 is in the living room hooked up to my 36" phillips via RCA cables, I ran the RF coax to the TV in the kitchen, now I can change channels in there too Awesome, I have an RC24 RF remote int the kitchen, looks like original one, If I get a backlit RF one got the living room, will it accept RF from both remotes, or should I leave the living room remote IR?

I imagine since you put the last 6 numbers of the IRD in when you program it it souldn't interfere

Can I use Dish Network UHF antenna? Does it have to be RF antenna? Does it make a difference? Thanks

When you activate the RF capability, should IR still work? Mine does, but it seems flaky.

I activated RF a couple of days ago, and IR had stopped. So I "turned off" RF and turned in back on, and now both work.

What are others seeing regarding this?
I have an RF remote out in the kitchen I use when I'm out there to change channels via RF (RC24?), when in the living room I use an IR remote (RC32) to work the R15, so both will work at the same time.

R15-100 software is not 100% identical to the R15-500

Since it is not an "official" feature of the unit yet, it is possible that the R15-100 and R15-300 don't have the RF ability enabled at all.
As I posted earlier my 300 works fine with the RF.

I just got off the phone with DirecTV tech support. They confirmed that the remote is an RF capable RC24. They tried to walk me through enabling RF (menu, setup, remote) but expected an IR/RF choice at that point. He spoke to someone else and came back on the line to say that the issue is that the R15-100 does not support RF. He was apologetic but there was nothing further he could do.
It is turned by entering a code in the remote, nothing needs to be done on the receiver except connect an antenna to th back of it.
