2 STBs in 1 location

I would like to put both receivers 1 dvr STB (TV 1 ), 1 wireless STB (TV 2) in 1 location.

Can I use a RF remote (1 for each receiver) for both of them? Is there something special I have to do to get one remote to control dvr STB  TV 1 and one remote to control  wireless STB TV2?

The RF remotes operate via RF to a dongle that attaches via USB to the front of the Receiver and transmits IR to the box.  IIRC, there is a channel/ID setting that you can make different for each pair.  You'll also need to ensure the that IR from one cannot physically be seen by the other box.


Also consider that the RF remotes send IR to the TV, so if the TVs are of the same brand (or otherwise react to the others IR code), you may have an issue there as well.
