Can I program a RC71 remote to work with an HR24-500?

My elderly mother just can't operate her new HR24-500 with the RC65.  I have an HR44 and would like to trade my RC71 with her.  Is this possible? If not, is there any remote that we can buy that would be simpler for her to operate?  Thanks!

Yes, the RC71 should work just fine with an HR24.  No special programming required.

II have been trying to find how to sync the RC71 with the HR24, but can only find instructions about how to sync that remote with a tv or audio receiver. Can you point me in the right direction? Thanks.

The RC71 will not work in RF mode with the HR24 but should already be set up to work in IR mode and should be able to be able to add the TV  from the remote setup menu on the HR24.

There's no "synch" required.  It should just work.  Have you tried it?
