You said "closet", so you may have more issues here. Otherwise, the actual replay remote has JP1 capability - not for the faint of heart, and you have to purchase/make an interface, but it is a great thing to be able to not worry about the whole "toggle" method.
I did use the JP1 stuff, and there is a l of of good info here and over on the yahoo group. BUT, having said that, the toggle method can be used...Or, you can do what I eventually did...
My solution was to just split the units to have one on another TV. For the few things that you need to do "locally" on the machine (like cleaning out old recording channels), it was just simpler to go to the other room. Most everything else can be done by telling the one replay to schedule a recording on the other unit, etc.
The other advantage is you can watch recorded shows in either place!
Good Luck, and if you need any of the JP1 stuff, I think I archived it all on my server here, so PM me!
