    I just figured out that when my wife uses the Direct TV remote upstairs on her TV, that it also controls the receiver I have in the basement. Sometimes, when she turns off the receiver upstairs, the one in the basement stays on. Looks like I need to switch the remote from being UHF to be infrared so the remote upstairs doesn't interfere with the receiver downstairs. Can someone tell me the procedure for doing that?

    Do it from the front of the receiver (using) the buttons on the front panel Access the remote from menu

    Or change the remote code setup so they can be set on RF but only control the unit its meant to control.

    So the receivers are in complete different floors? If the remotes are on RF they should not interfere with one another. If they are on IR, they need to see each other. Weird

    What are the model numbers of the two receivers and the model numbers on the remotes being used? This almost sounds like someone used a splitter on a non-SWM install.
