    I need to stack 6 DTV receivers in one location and use addressable remotes to control via relays since all TV's will also be in a large room. The new D11's or D10's are plain vanilla with no addressability of the remotes possible. The RCA last generation before the knife by DTV were addressable I believe as were a couple of other models. Does anybody know any place that is still selling referb or new RCA 485's, 435's or any of the other addressable remote receivers? As a last resort I suppose used receivers could be considered, there are some on E-Bay but I'd prefer referbs...

    You can have as many as 9 DTiVos in the same room and each one would have its own remote. TiVo peanut remotes have 10 addresses - "0 - not set" which will control any TiVo it's aimed at, and 1-9 which locks a given remote to a single TiVo.

    Yes R10s are still available but getting harder to find.

    For 6 D* receivers stacked together, if you don't want to use TiVos, you would need to get ahold of 6 Hughes HBH-SAs or SD-HBHs. They both have the capability of 8 different address codes for their remotes, are relatively new and should be plentiful on eBay.

    Just to strengthen that a bit. A peanut set to 0 will control any and EVERY TiVO it is aimed at.

    Weaknees sells a standard TiVO remote from Humanx for $29 with a switch that can control two separate TiVOs and/or DTiVOs. I got one when we added a second TiVO. It has the regular TiVO logo button rather than the DTV one, it works the same the picture is different. <http://www.weaknees.com/tivo_peanut_remote.php>

    There is another way to control 6 identical receivers even if they don't allow 6 unique IR code sets.

    Look at the Universal Remote Control Inc. "Complete Control Series" remotes in combination with either the MRF-250 or MRF-300 RF base station here. With this setup, you can have 6 IR emitters that you can program RF routing that allows for control over an array of identical components. I use this and it works well,

    Thanks for the exact model numbers to look for! Can't use Tivos, needs to be as simple as possible for a exercise club...

    Thanks hiker! If I can't find some of the receivers mentioned by newshawk this sounds like the only alternative and money really doen't matter to them...
