My three DVDRs are a 3575, 2160 and Pio 640, so they all have independent remotes.
For someone with only 2160's, you can cover the IR sensor (in the far-right edge of front window) as described by Artwire, OR use the HDD/DVD button to set only the "target" unit to HDD.
If you turn both units on first, then set the target unit to HDD with the front-panel button and the other unit(s) to DVD, you can operate the target unit w/o interfering with the other unit(s).
You'd turn all 2160's on first cuz the PLAY button would turn them on anyway, then after setting the non-target units to DVD, they wouldn't be affected by any other button presses except SETUP.
Non-target units set on DVD would also do timer programs normally and would not be affected by the STOP button, so you can Play, Chase Play, Stop the target unit (the only one set on HDD) all you want w/o affecting the DVD_set units.
