Looking for help. I have 3 (might have 4) comcast boxes, all the same. I have several tvs, some of which are the same make/model. What remote control can I use so that I can address the cable boxes and the like TVs so that my IR commands aren't going to all? In other words, how do I send a signal to change the channel on cable box "A" without changing the channel on boxes "B", "C", and "D"?

I was looking at the Harmony 900 because that has RF, but I don't know if that will solve the problem or not.

Thanks for any input.

The Harmony 900 does not have addressable IR outputs. Try a URC remote w/ RF base station.

the new procontrol z should do that. Mine should be here soon, and I plan to use addressable outputs to control (amongst other things) three identical cable boxes in a closet.

...just my $.02 - GST included.

It does, but you're only limited to three on the RF base.
