I use the Logitech Harmony One Remote to control all of my video and audio components. With my Directv install just a week away, I decided to hook the remote up to my computer and see if it would find and try to install the controls for the HR24 which is what I assume will be the receiver-DVR I get with my system. After searching..the remote software came back and said it did not find an exact match. I assume this is because the HR24 is so new. Anyone have insight on this?

I added an HR24 and use it with my Harmony One. I had an HR20-700 in there before. I totally forgot to change the settings on my Harmony One for the HR24. It works fine with the HR20 codes....

Yepp, when I swapped from the HR22 to the HR24, I did not even change anything on my Harmony.

Yep. Agree 100% with Jimbo. Not even close IMO......and Direct would not be getting one customer back if they were the same. lol

Even my HR20 is different than my HR21, and they are both WAY different than my HR24...

The IR codes are the same....not much else...

Like I said, other than the guts and the color (physical differences) of the receivers, they are the same when it comes to programming and how they are viewed onscreen.

Sooooo what you are saying is the GUI is the same. True, but the speed of it is FAR different from an HR24 to say an HR21......

There isn't much left if you take the guts and the physical appearance away, thats pretty much EVEYTHING.

I just had D* installed today, connected my Harmony 670 and added the HR 24 to my system. It works fine. I put a space between HR and 24, could that have been your problem with it? Not sure if spacing matters or not. The 670 is an older remote, a peanut shape, but I love it. It's my 2nd remote btw, my daughter threw the 1st against the floor in a fit of pique. She graciously (hehehehe) bought the 2nd.

I have used my Harmony 880 with a HR20, HR21 and HR24 and didn't need to make any changes in the setup. I think all of the Directv-branded receivers other than Directivos use the same remote codes.

I have the 890 on my HR22 and One on my HR23. I think I'm using the HR20 as the reference model.
