2 different tv's with 2 uverse boxes

I have 2 different tv's hooked up to 2 uverse boxes in the same room.

The remotes operate both boxes.

How can I program the remotes to operate the box separate for each tv

 

Thanks

Biggins61 - You cannot program the U-verse remote for different STBs. If your TVs were the same, they would both respond to the remote. The remote transmits the same IR code for every instance. Any instance that can "see" the transmitted IR will respond. Unique control of U-verse boxes and most TVs are designed for only one instance in sight of the IR transmitter.

 

I have three TVs& three STBs - Look at my avatar. I use a Logitech Harmony Smart Control to control all three. There is a main blaster for the TVs & one STB. Two addressable blasters control the other two hidden STBs.

 

It is awesome. read this thread for details - http://forums.att.com/t5/Using-your-U-verse-TV-Remote/Logitech-Harmony-Smart-Control-Remote/m-p/4028946#M2963
