I am contemplating replacing one of my STBs with a wireless receiver. The STB that I am considering replacing uses the RF remote and I wanted to check if the RF remote is supported on the wireless receiver and if anyone has had any issues using the wireless receiver with the RF remote.
Basically the other receiver is in another room (hence the reason I have the RF remote) and if I get the wireless receiver, I want to continue using this remote. I realize that if it is line of sight, the IR part of the remote should still work, but I also wanted to have the capability to use the RF remote for it from another room.
Solved! Go to Solution.

I know about the Uverse app and use it occasionally also, but we don't have a dedicated device for the Uverse app and when I've used that (when walking/running on a treadmill), it gets to be cumbersome as the app forgets which receiver it is connected to when the screen saving settings take over (which I suspect to just be a flaw with iOS not being able to truly background a process when it thinks the device is suspending). So, I end up having to reconnect to the receiver negating it's usefulness in controlling the DVR. If all I did was watch live TV and didn't care about pause/rewind/ffwd, it would work fine in that scenario.
I figured this configuration would work, but since I don't have a spare Uverse IR only remote, I wanted to ensure that this would work regardless of whether I had line of site access or not to the wireless receiver.
