The RC64R and RC64RB are the DirecTV RF remotes. I also believe the R16 does not have an RF antennae built-in (I know for certain the R15 does not). If that's the case, you need to attach one to the back of the receiver. If the receiver does not have a jack for one, then it is built-in. If you don't have an antennae, you can also take a small piece of coax cable and strip the shielding off of the last couple inches.quadbill said:which remote will work rf for r16-300? i have a few extras, but don't know which model remote will do it.
