    I'm sure this can be done, but I don't know how. I have two TVs hooked up to my HR20, my main HDTV and a second 13" set on an ajoining porch which is fed via an old VCR (HR20 > VCR > TV set). I also happen to have an extra remote for my upstairs H20.

    What I want to do is use the extra H20 remote to operate the small 13" TV AND the HR20, while leaving my original HR20 remote to operate the box and my HDTV. I've already coded the extra remote to work the 13" TV, but I can't figure out how to set it up to work the DVR also. Is there a code sequence for the HR20 itself somewhere? Thanks in advance.

    Thanks. Was able to set up the second remote with the 0001 code set to operate the HR20 (via RF) from the porch. Makes for some interesting potential practical jokes. I'm suddenly feeling an urge to mess with my wife's head :hurah:

    Ahh, the price a man will pay for a few laughs - the practical joking starts tonight! Will be interesting to see how long it takes for her to figure it out. :lol:
