    i have a r16-500 standard dvr and a hr 24-500 side by side and can`t get the remotes to control them seperatly.i was able to do it when i used the standard dvr and another standard nondvr,but now with hd dvr no good.i tried unplugging one and programme to av1 or av 2 and it says it works but the it still controls both irds.tried all the different codes and still no good.i have plenty of remotes and can dedicate one for each ird ,but it still won`t work.any ideas?

    Unplug the R16.
    Using the remote and the HR24 go into program remote, choose advanced setup ( the text used to say 3 or more receivers, I do not know if they have fixed it, it should say 2 or more ), tell the receiver that it is the second receiver.
    Follow the instructions on the screen.

    If you have an RF remote you can set one on IR and another on RF.

    You are welcome. The first time I came to this Forum I was looking for a solution to a remote control problem I had and found the answer here.
    Thanks for the update
