    Does anyone know if there is a RF remote the works with the HR54? I don’t think any of the Harmony series do.
    My Harmony Elite works with my Hopper 3 over IP using the Harmony Hub, but doesn’t seem to with the HR54.
    Anyone know if any of the URC remotes will work in RF?

    I don't think so, but the ones with a hub work well in ir.

    My Harmony remote and hub work fine with my HR54-500.

    As does mine with my HR-44, but it's IR not RF.

    Ok, thanks. I’ll just put an IR blaster on the receiver from the hub. Thought I would see if there was something I didn’t know about.

    My URC MX-890 works great with my HR44 ... I am pretty certain that it will work the HR54 if I need it to ...
    The only issue with the URC is you have to have it programmed ... not a do it yourself set up.
    It is a IR also with the IR Blasters like you mentioned as well.

    There are no universal RF remotes. The Genie remote will operate a genie in RF but nothing else. Everyone else who claims to have a universal RF remote actually has an RF remote driving an IR hub of somesort; it takes RF commands and converts them to IR to actually control the devices..
