Thank you for reaching us through our Answers Forum! I see you're having an issue with the DirecTV HR44 remote not being able to turn your Genie on/off. I was actually able to use my tools here on my end to connect to your Slingbox. While I was connected, I confirmed I was able to power the Genie box on and off using the remote.
I was just wondering if you have resolved this issue on your own, or is the Slingbox configured to use the H24 remote?
We appreciate your feedback.
