URC-1160 Remote & RF

Can this remote be set up with a Cisco 9865 using RF instead of IR?  

 

Also, can the Clikr-5 8780 be programmed to RF?

It's not looking good for you.  The data sheet for the Cisco 9865 HDC 6 tuner HD DVR indicates that it can work with either the Contour or Contour 2 series of RF remote controls. It also says that DVRs using Contour 2 RF control do not work with any third-party remotes.

 

According to Universal Electronics, both the URC1160 and CLIKR-5 remote control units are infrared only devices.

Thanks you sir!  Not what i was hoping for but all is good.  Just today,  i went out and purchased a Harmony Ultimate One with Hub and it works beautifully and setup was a breeze.  Smaller in size and not a lot of button, Plus,  ability to control 15 devices.  Backlight is good also.
