is the h20 rf capable? it has rf remote ant jack. installer told me h20 wasnt capable yet.

can i use rc24 w/ h20.

rc24 came with my hr20. just thought the h20 would be the same

have client with master bedroom setup with flat panel in bedroom and receiver in great room rack. sold an RTI m2, but all it would be used for is satellite. seems silly to buy that if we could use the directv rf remote. i would rather sell him an amp for zone two for the same money any way, so would he.
I love supporting product that supports me!

They dont come with the RF antenna anymore. But you can order them from DirecTV and they will work with the supplied remote with H20. Easy way to tell if the remote is RF capable is to look for the FCC sticker on the back. ;)

Installer is a moron as are most Directv installers. The remote that you want is the RC34.

There's more detail on this in the satellite forum; search there for recent posts by edmund.
We can't give you a good answer, or maybe any, without the make and model of everything.

You can also make your own antenna with some coax. If you have the remote from the HD DVR it is RF capable and you can do this.

I too got the information from some satellite forum but I can't say I remember which one...

Directv's recent software upgrade on the H20-100 boxes has left a lot of them with the inability to use the "RF" feature of the remote.

Lots of problems with the new software release.

You can still use RF after the software update, but you can't use RF & IR at the sametime anymore, which wasn't the way it supposed by anyways.

The current RF remotes are the rc24, rc32rf, rc34, and the rc64rb. The rc64rb was just released, only thing new is boatload of new tv codes.
