Stop my remote from controlling all DCX3200 devices
 
Good day forum viewers.

I have a gym with 4 TVs and comcast came in and installed 4 DCX3200 boxes and supplied the standard universal URC-106XXXXX remote.

My problem is that one remote controls all 4 cable boxes. So if one person changes the channel with a remote all TV channels are changed.

How can I lock one remote to one cable box?



Thank you!

Not possible. You could solve it with a complicated and expensive RF or addressable IR system. But those nice remotes have legs, if you know what I mean. An option might be to ask your cable co. for a mix of different boxes if possibe, i.e., a Cisco, Motorola and Scientific Atlanta. Those usually use different codes.

The best solution would be to get DirecTV. Their boxes are addressable, and they'd probably give you a good deal.

Thank you very must for your response. I had a feeling that was the answer because each box is addressed to one code.

My idea now is to mount the remotes behind an extended IR module on the gym equipment.

Again thank you very much for your help, I've been researching for days on this topic because I don't like giving up lol

Thank you

You could maybe just make the boxes accessible so the channels can be changed without the remotes.

How about the Next Generation remote Extender Genius:

Buy different frequencies, control the Cable boxes independently. And still use cable oem remotes.

You could put in IR extender with an IR receiver at each television. Then put blackouts over the emitters located on the front of the cable boxes so the IR doesn't scatter to the other boxes. Now, it doesn't matter which remote you use.. only the TV that you point it towards.

I've done jobs with 10+ identical cable boxes and this is the way that I've solved it.
