Does anyone else also have an existing RF remote they are trying to use with the HR20?
I have an MX 950 RF remote with base station near the HR20. I have an IR flasher assigned to the HR20 running from the RF base station. I have succesfully switched the D* remote from RF and IR and back again. I noticed that when the D* remote is in RF mode, I can no longer control the HR20 from the MX 950. It appears that when the D* remote is in RF mode, in addition to switching the remote to work via RF, it also turns off the IR "eye" or receiver on the front of the HR20 that can receive IR signals. This means that I can either control the HR 20 from my MX 950 or the D* remote via RF, but not both at the same time. I wonder if this is by design or whether this is something that can be configured in the HR20?
I could really benefit from being able to use BOTH the D* remote in RF mode as well as use the MX 950 as an RF remote at the same time because I currently have 3 TVs that use the same HR20 as their receiver. (My HT room projector via HDMI, my family room plasma via component, and my kitchen TV via RCA).
p.s. I also experience the keybounce issue and the lack of press and hold in RF mode. I am trying to program the MX 950 to allow press and hold for the certain keys that need it.
