I have a DISH 722k, which has an infrared remote control for TV 1 and UHF for TV 2.  I know that http://www.amazon.co...e/dp/B001269BW4 ther are kits to convert infrared to UHF, but are there also kits to switch TV2 to infrared?  The reason I ask is because I have a SlingBox PRO-HD connected to the 722k.  I have both TV 1 and TV 2 connected to it.  I know that I can't change channels on TV 2 with the SlingBox PRO-HD because it controls the 722k with the IR commands.  I do also have a DISH Sling for TV 2, but if I could somehow give the Sling PRO-HD full control over the DSIH 722k, that might be better in my case because the PRO-HD has some features that the Sling adapter doesn't offer.

Google could be your friend:

Thank you for that.  I thought I did Google it, but maybe I didn't use the correct terms.  What would be great is if it possible to have it respnd to BOTH infrared AND UHF, but I ahve a hunch it is an either/or situation!
