I know I've read about this previously in this forum, but I just can't find where.

How do I determine which DVR works with which selected setting.

At present both remotes I have, seem to address both machines, regardless of the switch settings of each remote.

You have to program the TiVo to match remote setting. Will try and find the info.

If you can't fix it with a Big Hammer, chances are you've got an electrical problem!

Thanks.

This link appeared to provide the answer and I was able to set the remote address to "2" as reported in the system information page.

However, the remotes both continued to operate the DVR regardless of their switch settings.

Never mind. I've fixed the problem by using the TiVos in separate rooms. At least they both control powere.volume etc. for their relative model TVs. One a Sony and the other a Samsung.

I had some grief but because I use a Harmony remote it isn't an issue anyway.

I used that link and now control 2 TIVO units with the single remote - I had to set the value to 1 on the first TIVO and then to 2 on the other Unit. I also have keypress beeps turned on for the second unit (but off for the first) so I always know which one I'm using!!! Embarassed

Try this one, worked for me. Just assigned #1 and #2 and used the small slider indicator on the remote to show which remote belongs to which device (I don't think the slider actually does anything?)

Slider? That's a switch. Program each position separately as if they were separate remotes.
