    If you configure the Genie to use an RF remote, does that deactivate the IR sensor? In other words, if you set up the Genie itself for RF, does that mean you can no longer use an IR remote on the unit?

    Thanks

    Correct, it only works one or the other, not both at the same time.

    The only box that does both is the THR22.

    So to agree with everyone, and to reaffirm the only box that allows both is the tivo dvr.
