I have figured out how to set up a system in my under-construction home, but keep coming up against it with regards to controlling things with a remote.
Basically, I can set up a server room that houses 2 identical DVR [cox HD dvrs or two tivos, whatever] on a 4x4 matrix switch, which should allow me to sit in my living room and choose which source feeds that tv, while my wife sits in another room and chooses the other source.
Here is the catch: Remotes for Cox cable boxes or tivos, are set so that one remote controls ANY box, meaning they aren't specifically tied to one box. So, even though I can direct the video [or control the video] to specific rooms in the house, and have different rooms watching different things, when I sit in that room and change something [channel, recording, etc] it will change it on both boxes.
Are there any IR/RF setups that solve this issue?
