Can't activate DTV RC64R remote for HD20R HD DTV Receiver
Bought a brand new sealed R64R because its RF or IR and I need to set it up as a 2nd remote. I have a HDMI cable running to my kitchen and I'm using the old R34 remote to channel select in kitchen. Bought R64R as a backup for family room (next room) so I don't have to share one remote. I want to leave one in each room.

If you wish to get more details; check the sites linked here. It has set-up code list & set-up procedure to many popular brand remote controls. Common codes to check devices with different brand TVs are given, in the order of the device's brand name list in alphabetical order. Pull up older posts. Surf the site with patience. http://remotesearch.blogspot.com/ http://electrohelponline.blogspot.com/
Direct TV remote control code list is given.
Have you tried doing this:
Press and hold the TV button on the remote till all 4 buttons light up and flash(make sure your TV is on). Once they flash, press the power button, then using the channel up button, point the remote at the TV and keep pressing it till the TV turns off. When it does, press the # sign and that will lock in the new found code.
Is the top switch all the way to the left? What type of receiver? Receiver might be rf mode. Is the remote different from your original remote? Press 'menu' go to 'settings & help' or 'parental, favs, & setup' then 'settings' or 'setup', then remote control. Go 'advanced ...' and check ir/rf mode. If it is exactly RC65X then the receiver should be set to IR.
Try these instructions and see if they work for your genie remote.
First, have your Genie Mini receiver connected and powered on. Next, grab your RC71 remote and simultaneously hold the "MUTE" + "ENTER" buttons until you see a box appear on your TV screen that says "Applying IR/RF Setup. Please Wait" (this appears after about 5 seconds of holding those buttons). Once complete another dialog box will appear and read, "Your remote is now setup for RF." Click "SELECT" to exit that screen. Next, click the "MENU" button, scroll down to "Settings & Help", then click on "Settings", scroll down to and click on "Remote Control", then click "Program Remote". Next you will have two options, either "Program TV" or "Program Audio Device". Click "Program TV", this takes you to a screen where you need to select what BRAND your TV is. After you have selected your TV brand you will have to select the TV Model ( I recommend looking at the sticker on the back of your TV for the accurate Model number or using your current TV remote to find the model number from the menu screen on your TV for fastest and best results). Once the correct model number is selected, AIM your RC71 remote at the TV and it will AUTOMATICALLY program!
Your DirecTV device is probably set on RF (Radio Frequency), which the Harmony can't use. You will need to set it to IR (Infrared) for the Logitech remote to control it.
1. On the original DirecTV remote press the Menu button 2. From the Menu press Select on Settings 3. Select Remote from the left menu 4. Press Select on the IR/RF Setup button 5. Use the Up or Down arrows to change from RF to IR 6. Press Select to save
Connect the supplied anttena on the reciever. Once you have done that, then:
1. dtv symbol device 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 #, found on a sticker in the access card compartment 6. press SELECT
Now the receiver will accept both IR and RF, but the directv device on
the RC32RF remote will only emit RF signals. The av1, av2, and tv are
all still IR only.
Most DirecTV receivers are able to be controlled with IR (infrared) or RF (Radio Frequency) signals. DirecTV receivers are usually set to be controlled by RF.
To control a DirecTV PVR / Satellite, it needs to be set to respond to an IR Remote: 1. On the original DirecTV remote press the Menu button 2. From the Menu press Select on Settings 3. Select Remote from the left menu 4. Press Select on the IR/RF Setup button 5. Use the Up or Down arrows to change from RF to IR 6. Press Select to save
Note: Some models of DirecTV may have different steps to enable IR. You may need to refer to your user manual
Harmony Remotes only control IR signals. so this is not the issue. The Harmony Remote should control the tv. the original remotr needs to be tested for IR or RF.
The device we are working on that is not being controlled by the Harmony Remote could be operating on RF (Radio Frequency) signals. Harmony Remote can only control the devices that operate on IR (Infrared) signals. Most devices that work on RF signals can be changed to operate on IR signals, and this usually could be done by changing the remote control command mode to IR from RF.
Please follow the steps listed below to test to see if the device is being operated on RF or IR signal: 1- We need to use the original remote for that device to complete this task 2- Using your hand or a thick and wide object (wall, pillow, book...), cover the top part of the original remote. In other words block the direct positioning between the original remote and the device. 3- After you cover the top part of the original remote (or used an alternate way to block the direct communication of the original remote and the device), try pressing the buttons on the original remote to see if it can still send commands that can be received by the original remote. You can try powering on/off your device using the original remote when the original remote is being blocked by your hand or another object. 4- If you still can control the device using the original remote without a point of sight, your device is being operated on RF signals. If you cannot control the device without a point of sight, then it is IR operated. 5- If the device is RF operated, please change the command receiving mode to IR rather than RF and test the Harmony Remote. 6- If the device is IR operated, please contact us again by replying to this email and let us know if none of the commands or some certain commands are not working for that device.
You can usually find the information on how to switch the device to be operated on IR signals rather than RF signals, through the user manual for your device, or by contacting technical support of the manufacturer for that device, or even sometimes reaching the information simply by doing a basic research over the internet.
Is there an IR receiver (or if using the RF extender, IR eyeballs connected to device and the RF extender) that you are pointing at to control the CBus lighting? If not, there is no way to control it. The Harmony 1000 will only communicate with the RF extender through Zwave, so you can't communicate with other Zwave devices, like you can with the Harmony 890 for instance.
I have the same remote as yours and occasionally the RF remote is not working due the interference signal from outside or next door at certain hours.
(1) To relocate the receiver and reposition the anntena for better reception of the RF signal from the remote unit.
(2) Replaced the battery.
