I have a GWII and an old sony 32 inch XBR2 in the same viewing area. The default remote codes work both TVs for the most part. Thus, is there a second set of codes for the GWII, or any way to alter the codes so that they won't work both TV's? :confused:


I have the HD200 receiver, and I believe that offers two sets of codes.


thanks,


Mike

Hi Mike:

Unfortunately, the GWII doesn't have the two sets of codes like the HD200. Thus, I can only think of one possible fix for this problem. Get a Pronto and RF Extender. Program the Pronto so that it emits RF to be received by one of the TVs and IR to be received by the other TV. It's a somewhat pricey solution....but it would work. If you have questions about how to do this, feel free to contact me.

Hi Harry,


Thanks for the response. Does the RF extender shield or box out receipt of other IR signals? Otherwise, wouldn't that RF controlled TV still receive the same IR signals controlling the IR controlled TV. Perhaps I'm missing something?


What would this solution cost? It might be cheaper just to replace the 32" TV with a different brand. Unfortunately, I like having two TV's out for sporting events.


Thanks for the advice,


Mike

Hi Mike:


The RF extender receives an RF signal from the pronto for the pronto pages which are set for RF as opposed to IR output). The RF extender receives only RF and is unaffected by IR!! You could use the RF extender to receive the signal from a separate Pronto page set to RF for one of your two tvs. The RF extender then would convert the signal back to RF and send it by wire to an IR transmitter stuck diretly to the receiver of one of your TVs. You would then cover this with tape so that it doesn't pick up IR from the other remote. This way, only one of the two TV's would recieve the RF signal and the other would receive only the IR signal. The Pronto RF extender goes for about $100...but you would need a Pronto too. This would clearly be a cheaper alternative to buying a new TV!! As I mentioned before, this is hard to explain.....but would clearly work. I suggest you download a copy of the manual for the Pronto RF extender at this link: http://www.remotecontrol.philips.com/library/documents/ifu_RF%20Extender_LI970_English.PDF


Good luck!!!
