RC64R --C41-100????

 

I am new to the forum. I have a C41-100.  Will an RC64R work with this unit?  I followed the instructions to set up the remote with the RID number but I can not get it to work. The C41 came with an R71 which works but I want a second remote. I have several RF remotes. Thanks

Thanks! My head was starting to hurt from bagging it on the desk. Are there any other DTV remotes that will work. I just got 3 R71's with my new upgrade. I had a DVR die so I upgraded to a Genie and two clients. I put the newest DVR in the bedroom and the Genie in the family room. What remotes will work with the Genie?

Thanks for all the help.

as DirecTV user said, you still can use the RC64, but only on IR

Just to be perfectly clear.  All remotes will work with all receivers in IR mode.  The HR44 has a different configuration so only the RC71 remote will work with the HR44 in RF mode.  And, conversely, the RC71 will only work with the HR44 in RF.

I can live with that. Strange that the HR44 can do IR and RF at the same time. IR seems to work good.  I really don't care for the little remote. The Tivo remotes fit my hand a little better.  Not sure why they changed the remote so drastically. I have been with DTV since 1994 and had my first Tivo after they were out 6 months with one tuner and bought a second to have more storage.

Thanks again for all your help.
