HR44 remote setup

I just got an HR44 to replace my HR20.  The tech programmed the new RC71 remote to control the HR44.  He said my old RC64RB remote would not work with the HR44 if the HR44 was programmed for the RC71.

I tried the RC71 for a day but do not really like it.  I prefer the touch and button layout of my RC64RB.

I am aware that the HR44 uses a new RF frequency so it will not respond to any old RF remotes such as my RC64RB.

So the question is: how do I switch the HR44 from the RC71 to my RC64RB in IR mode?
