I have a Dish TV UHF decoder and a Strong satellite decoder. Both work fine, with the satellite decoder receiving D1 and D3 channels, BUT the remotes appear to be on the same frequency, and operating either upsets the settings of the other. I have solved this. sort of, by putting tape across the front of the Strong decoder, and operating it from the front panel buttons, but this is inconvenient. Can anyone suggest a better solution?

You could check in the manuals and see if either remote can be switched to a different code. Panasonic remotes allow a selection of 6 different codes (older ones allow 4) just for the situation you have. I used to have two Panasonic players with code 1 on one and code 2 on the other.

Possibly the cheapest solution would be selling the Strong Sat decoder and buying another brand (or vice-versa with the UHF one).
