remote will work for channels but volume and power will end up changing all the tvs.
this does stink but i will figure out a way to manage it. Thanks Yoda for the info.
Whether you use one D* remote (set to different IR codes) or 3 remotes set to RF (or any combination thereof) you can easily get by the same TV brand issue by simply masking the Infrared Sensors of each TV.
The masking tape blocks out (limits) the IR reception of the commands from the remote(s), allowing you to just point the remote to the TV (and only TV) you wish to control (input, volume, on/off, etc.)
This is the simplest way to do it.
If you want to get elaborate and fancy, an RF remote and base station with discrete addressable emitters, such as Crestron (expensive) or URC (much more affordable -but just as capable, reliable, flexible, and expandable- for what you are trying to accomplish) is what is needed.
Harmony remotes (cheapest RF remote solution, in general) will not work in your particular situation, as they are limited in their capabilities. If I recall correctly, the Harmonies can only control up to four devices discretely. You have six. EDIT: You technically only have 3 devices (the TVs) that need to be controlled discretely. The Harmony remote should work, but there is little to no room for expansion
Crestron and URC can control a practically unlimited number of devices to not only control a bunch of TVs and Sat receivers of the same brand, but AVRs, Disc Players, Media Servers, lights, projectors, thermostats, cameras, etc., as well.
