    Well….I should've asked this BEFORE I ordered my Hopper and Joeys….oh well. So, if I understand correctly, the Hopper remote is an RF remote? Is there also an IR functionality? If it is RF only, I'm going to be a little bummed because I think my Logitech Harmony 900 is going to have trouble with that. It uses RF…but only from the Harmony to the IR blasters.

    Hmmm….what to do?

    Yes, both hopper and joey can respond to IR but you need to turn it on in the options.

    When you get your receivers just go into Remote Setup and turn IR support on and you are all set. :)

    Just to clarify…I realize the Hopper Remote has IR - to control TV's and other aux devices. My question is, does the Hopper itself have an IR receive port so that I can control the Hopper and DVR functions through IR - or are those functions strictly controlled by RF?

    Thanks,

    Okay, this is my first post out here, but I want to clarify to just double and triple check what I'm reading. I just ordered an upgrade to my current system (DVR 612, with 2 211's) to a single Hopper and 2 Joey's. The big worry I have is I have a home theater where one of the Joey's will be and in there I have high end URC MX-880 remote that send signals to all devices (Dish Receiver, BluRay Player, Audio Receiver, and XBox 360) via IR codes. All the devices have a little IR extender that sticks to the IR sensor on the corresponding device.Is there an IR sensor on the Joey that I will be able to stick on of these IR senders to? I have to work with the HT installer to program the remote as the URC doesn't allow consumer programming, but I need to know if this is even going to be possible.From what I'm reading I will have to turn something on in the Joey, but what I haven't read anywhere yet is where/if there is even an IR sensor on the Joey box itself.Thank you and I apologize if this is somewhere else, I just couldn't find it.

    Yes, once you enable IR on the Joey, it should work with your remote once it is programed. This also means there is an IR sensor on the Joey that can be used with the IR extender.

    Will the 21.1 remotes work with the Hopper/Joeys? Also, what is the difference between the 21.0 and 21.1 remotes? I need to know which ones to turn back in with my VIP's.
