Re: RC71

That remote is designed to work with the new HR44 Genie HD DVR.  I don't think it will work with the HR34. Where did you get it???

Re: RC71

I received the RC71 Remote with my new HR44 Genie DVR.  This was the first time the DirecTV technician had seen it.  I called technical support to get a user's guide for the remote and stumped the support team.  It does not seem like good planning to 1) send techs in the field with no tech data on a piece of equipment, or 2) not give the customer a user's guide for it.  At least have the user guide info on your web site.

 

Total failure DirecTV!

Interesting.  I didn't think HR44's were shipping to anybody yet.

Re: RC71

Allow the hr44 to program the remote.

Re: RC71

You got to have an HR-44 or a C-41 to program the new RC71 remotes to your tv and other audio options. Once it is all setup you have to program remote for IR or RF, then TV and then your audio option. You can use the remote in IR mode for other models and even program TV's U just have to have a list of codes.

As mentioned previously, this must be done via an HR44.

Re: RC71

It can be done as normally in IR Mode.  You just have to have the right code for that TV ie press and hold mute + Select until the led blinks twice then enter the code it worked for my Samsung TV using

Re: RC71

Here's a link to the "guide". Not much there, but useful anyway.

Re: RC71

kram 160, thanks very much for that link.  It was all I needed to solve my problem (changing input).  The installer said the RC71 is very new, that as far as he knows, it's only being used in central Iowa and Arizona.  I can't decide if I like it better than the old one yet.

Re: RC71

I am a new Direct TV subscriber and not to happy about the remote that I got. I have also gotten a new RC71 remote, the installer said it was new and was being tested now. I also want a manual or something to guide me about the functions but technical has sent me to a link for the old remotes. Still trying to get information about this remote
