MCinKC - Not exactly. The point anywhere remote does have a pairing with its dongle receiver. So if you have multiple point anywhere remotes you can pair each one.
But, you need only one. You use one IR remote & one RF remote. You hide the RF STB so it does not respond to the other IR.
But, what are you going to do about the TVs?
I actually have the exact same set-up, but intentionally have different TVs.
There is a brand new more elegant (read potentially expensive) solution. at&t just introduced an easy remote app for iphone, ipod, ipad that works via the RG wireless,
User manual for U-verse easy remote - https://www.att.com/support_media/images/pdf/uvers
The u-verse easy remote app, available on iTunes, appears to have the following new (more than the basic remote) features -
Click speak button & it responds to voice,
Two font sizes - multicolors
Prominent Closed Caption (CC) single press toggle button.
Favorite channel scan.buttons in addition to full channel scan buttons
One button Favorites guide.
Paired with STB - Supports multiple STBs. << control both STBs individually with one remote>>
Sort channel list by channel name.
Optional haptic feedback.
Major missing feature - Mute/Volume control of STB << With your TVs being the same & you usually have them both on, If you could control the STB volume/mute you would be perfect. >>
The same functionality may be available or on the way for other smart phones.
