This is my second 3575, and the immediate problems are 1) how to rearrange the cabling and 2) where to stack the thing so that the remote only talks to the one I want it to.
1) Cabling - Assuming you're OTA or on cable, and you want them on the same tv, just run the coax from one to the other and on to the TV. Oops, just realized you may or may not have enough separate TV LINE inputs... each 3575 should normally have its separate line input to the TV? BUT, you may only have one line input on your TV? If so, I'm thinking you'll be watching only one unit at a time, and there must be some clever way to combine the line outputs to the TV so both units use the same TV input? Interesting! A Combiner? What happens then if both units are on at the same time... garbled pic, a small explosion... stand back when engaging??? Inquiring minds want to know!
2) Remote - Since the 3575 remote doesn't have "codes" to distinguish between units, when you want to watch something on one unit but not the other, turn that unit on manually. Once one unit is ON, you can then press the ON button on the remote and it'll turn the 1st unit off, and the 2nd unit on, as many times as you want to switch back and forth... one unit will always be on and one off, so you'll have to make your final OFF manually, just like you started the on/off series.
P.S. Were you able to delete that "bad" title from your HDD?
