stuzzo:MattD:Look: This is madness. What happens when you want to record on one stb but not the other? What if you've got multiroom setup with IR extenders and STB x2 in a central location? How will the remote know which STB to record to? My HDI coming next Wednesday...not sure if I want it with this problem. Any ideas for a workaround?Not sure what
Yeah, but if the signal is the same and it goes to both boxes, it makes no difference if there is a divider between the boxes. In IR it generally makes no difference having multiple emmiters anyway, it's when you have more than one receiver that you run into trouble.
A solution might be an IR router but that couldt get expensive. Having the boxes in the same room/closet isn't the issue either. It is having them in the same IR distribution system.
Finally someone understands. Its not about having a box for each TV, its about being able to view/record/delete 320GB of storage from ANY tv around the house without interfering with the SD box.
