New RC72 remote coming, looks like just an incremental update of the IR code database for new TVs, specifically coming Toshiba RVU sets.

RC72 Remote

Starting this month, field locations should begin receiving the RC72 remote. RC72 remotes are planned to be in every warehouse by October and will phase out the RC71.

The Details:

· The RC72 is identical to the RC71 in design and functionality.

· The difference? RC72 has extra IR TV programming codes.

· Toshiba RVU must have RC72 (can be shipped to customer) and will not program to the RC71. If you are installing a Toshiba RVU TV and do NOT have the new RC72 remote, please assist the customer in calling DirecTV to order an RC72.

How long before the backlit RC72B?

With the backlit RC71 just coming out in the past couple months they should have just held back and made it based on the RC72.

Likely will change eventually but if they made a decent size batch of inventory it may be a while.

So really,the only advantage to the new remote seems to be if you get the new Toshiba RVU TV,which hasn't been released yet. if I was to order a HR44 Genie today,what are the chances that the RC72 would be in the box now with it?

I would imagine the RC72 covers more new TV's than just the Toshiba.

I just received 2 RC72 remotes to replace my Universal remote. Unfortunately, none of the codes for Samsung work with my TV. :( Boo

So it's not listed in the database for Samsung then? If so, perhaps you could send a report to Directv so they can update their database.
