My installer put in a great system in my basement with multiple TVs, the Élan G HC6 controller and other stuff........ So far I only have one glitch. He couldn't get the HR2 to control the DVR. It controls channel changing, menu functions, guide, etc......but not the DVR controls (pause, record, etc). It seems to me that with a system as mainstream as Directv that this should be possible. I can control all aspects through the iPad app, but not the remote. Has anyone gotten a way for this to work? He is looking into it but I thought I'd check here if anyone had any experience with this remote.
