my rc71  remote refuses to go through the RF set-up with my new  lg 24ln451b tv.  Whats the deal? Directv tells me the tv isn't compatible, but I can't even get to the step where it looks for it. Help??

Your remote can only control TVs via IR, not RF. There is a remote setup screen on your DirecTV receiver where you can pick TV brands and codes. Go to setup (the gear icon).

So you are saying change the remote from rf to ir? I thought it was supposed to remain rf.

I tried bith rf and ir set ups. Neither will allow me to proceed to the next step of programming the remote. I just get the message that " there is trouble programming your remote to rf,or ir, .still stumped.
