    RF Remote Support


      Just got off a live chat while setting up my Direct Tv HR22-100 box about lack of control on the remote.   Turns out that the HR22 has RF only remote

      control.   I have never seen a warning about the fact the 500 does not support RF remotes.   Is there a work around that someone has figured out?  Not sure if the highend DVR have IR....


      Thanks for any help

          Hello, ACC5691278.


               Unfortunately, there is no way to make the Slingbox communicate in RF; most often, however, DirecTV boxes can indeed work in IR:



               If this is not the case with your satellite box, you may want to ask DirecTV if they have any IR-capable options for you. It should also be noted that the remote codes listed in the Slingbox setup generally only work with remote address 1; if your DirecTV box is set to a different remote address, that may also be the cause of the issue.


          Hope this helps!
