    I bought 722k receiver, but it has only one remote (1st TV). I am currently using 625 receiver, which has two 6.3 remotes. Can I use the existing remote for second tv? Do I need any special configurations? I just want to make sure it works, otherwise i will try after buying the second remote. Thanks,

    Yes, you can use it. Use the TV1 remote to bring up the Sys Info screen, then press Record on the TV2 remote to set the receiver to the same address the remote is sending on.

    Awesome. So in the sys info screen itself read the tv2 remote codes? huh.. i can setup the receiver now, i dont have to wait for the remote to come in..

    What advantage will i have with 21.0 remote control?
    thank you.

    21.0 are better remotes overall, they are newer and have newer preset universal codes in them, they also have the learning feature ( ala dumbed down harmony remote ) to learn specific button presses from the original remote and map it to any button on the 21.0 - also imo i like the look of the 21.0 better.

    I think even more importantly, the 21.0 can memorize all of your timers so that if you need to replace the 722k you can restore all of your timers.
