Remote Control Problems

Didn’t find an answer after searching so I thought I would put it to the group.
I have multiple DirecTV boxes near each other and I don’t know of a way to have one controller only change the channel on one box. I don’t want the other box to change.
It makes it a pain in the ass with major league extra innings or the NFL ticket. Any suggestions? Besides squats and milk that is.

1st world problems…

Must be nice to have a working remote, my dog ruined all mine.

PIIYB.

You probably did, but I’ll ask anyway.

Did you call Direct TV and ask them? Different manufacturers are assigned different codes for the remotes. Maybe there’s a way to change that value on the Direct TV box.

I use Fios and they have a bunch of different models for their boxes. Maybe directTV has a newer/older model that uses a different code.

The ratio of useless replies to serious is 3:1. So nobody answer this seriously until another 3 useless replies are made. Including this one. Its the law.
