How can I program multiple RC66RX remotes to do RF with one HR24 receiver?

I have just received new RF remotes and have programmed them for my HR24. I can program one to do RF, but once I do that the other two remotes no longer work, as they are set for IR. Is there a way to get all three to do RF or do I have to simply live with IR if I want to use multiple remotes? Thanks in advance for any suggestions!

Hi @skippersrs,

 

You only need to program the first going through the DVR menus and then on the second and third

 

Slide switch to DirecTV

1. Press and hold MUTE and SELECT (LED flashes twice)

2. Enter 961, then  CH UP

3. Enter last 6 digits of the DVR IRD number

4. Press SELECT

Note: Both the receiver and the remote control can be put into either IR or RF mode. When you change the mode of the receiver, it will give onscreen instructions for how to also change the mode of the remote control. Both the receiver and the remote control must be in the same mode for things to work.

Hope this helps.
