And if you have it set to RF and unplug, the box will revert back to IR while your remote is RF. So again, you will have to use the front panel to change the box back to RF before you can use your remote again.
so does the receiver have built in RF capabilities??? My old rcvrs always had external antennaChris Blount said:This will obviously not affect everyone and is probably very rare but I thought it should be noted.
I was right in the middle of changing my remote function from IR to RF when a software upgrade hit my receiver. Because the pop up window blocked the code I needed to enter into the remote, the receiver changed to RF while my remote had to remain in IR until after the upgrade.
After the software upgrade finished, I had to use the front panel buttons to switch the receiver back to IR to repeat the process.
Not a big deal but if it does happen to any of you, don't panic. It's a pretty simple fix to get back on track.
