I'm no techno-geek, so I'll try and explain this in non-technical terms, in case anybody is interested.

This is your standard Direct TV remote, except this version has both IR and RF capabilities. In certain instances, you may need IR (Infrared) and RF (Radio Frequency) remotes. My situation was that I have a Direct TV HD-DVR (HR24-200) and a Standard HD receiver (H21-200) in the same room- one top of the other, actually- and using one remote for one device (like for changing the channels) would change the channel on the other device.

I, of course, didn't realize this when the Direct TV technician came in and set up this all up, and since the wife and I have our own remotes, the bottom line was I needed an RF capable remote for me, so that I could operate each device separately also.

This remote did the trick...however one big thing to realize: The remote I received was already in IR mode. I thought it was broken, but through a little digging on the Direct TV technical site, I found how you can change the remote to "RF" mode. Here are the steps:

1. make sure "slider" on top is set to dtv.
2. press and hold MUTE & SELECT, wait for two blinks, release
3. enter 0 0 0 0 1
4. press and hold MUTE & SELECT, wait for two blinks, release
5. enter 9 6 1
6. press CH UP
7. enter the last 6 digits of the Receiver ID# (RID), found on a sticker in the access card compartment
8. press SELECT

The remote came with absolutely NO directions, and I almost rated it 4 stars as a result. Outside of that annoying little omission, it works fine. Hopefully it'll last, too.

Good luck!

I was nervous about purchasing this remote since there really isn't much information out there about switching from IR to RF and I am far from technical. I decided to go with this remote because of the price - it wasn't much of a loss if it didn't work. We have a DVR receiver (non-HD) and from what I've read any remotes with the "r" model number are ir/rf compatible. The DirecTV reps told us we needed to upgrade to the HD receiver to be able to use the RF function, but I'd read elsewhere our box was compatible so I bought this remote anyway. The package arrived very quickly and even without instructions it was fairly simple to setup. We put our receiver in a dresser drawer and the remote works with no problems.

My husband "setup" the remote when it arrived and he said he followed the prompts that popped up on the screen when he tried to use the remote for the first time but it didn't work (the volume control works, but not the DirecTV functions) but here's what I did and the remote works now:

1. Set to dtv
2. press and hold MUTE & SELECT for two blinks
3. enter 9-6-1
4. press CH UP
5. enter the LAST 6 digits of the receiver ID #
6. press SELECT (now read below for the next step!)

Once this is done, the remote is set to RF, but now you have to use the buttons on the receiver to go into setup menu and select RF. If you don't make sure both the remote and receiver are set to the same (either IR or RF) then they won't work together.

It works off RF signal, radio frequency signal does travel very easily. I used it to change channels when watching the TV located on the second floor about 80 feet away from the directv box. It responds much faster than the IR infrared remote it replaced. I have no hesitations to buy another one for use in the basement.

There were no instructions with the remote. Had to follow JK's previous review info and switch the remote back to rf before I could get it to work. I greatly appreciated his instructions. I might have returned it thinking it did not work otherwise. Works great now though.

This is an RF remote that does not work with all Directv RF enabled receivers. I have a model 24 HD receiver and it does not work with that one - I am told it will work with other models though; which ones I don't know.

I contacted the seller and after a few email exchanges, they tell me they have reversed the sale and initiated a refund. I don't think you can ask for any more than that. I would buy from the seller again, but I would contact them first to make sure that what I was buying would meet my needs - for both our sakes.

We bought this remote to replace one we dropped one too many times. I tried setting it up to work with our system but was unable to do so. Had to call DirectTV and they walked me through the procedure and it works fine.

Read JK's review if you are having issues setting up the proper codes. Have had Directv for years and never ran into this sort of problem and this was an exact replacement. Some instructions would be nice, instead of taking 2 mintues it took 30 minutes to figure it out. Kind of annoying! Otherwise a fine product and the price was right.

I ordered this unit to replace my broken one at a better price than I could buy it from Directv. Va surplus sent the upgraded version which has more of the newer TV codes in it's code bank instead, which is certainly forward thinking and much appreciated. Very fast service, good 2 minute program assistance from Rick, and a device that works perfectly. No cons here!
