Have been reading some conflicting info. Just want to clear up some of my confusion.
New remotes for Hopper/Joey are uhf right? Remotes get paired with a certain receiver and will not work other receivers right? Can you pair more than one remote to a particular receiver? We llike more than one remote in the living room. Will Dish sell you extra remotes? Thanks

The remotes are UHF. They are paired with one Hopper or Joey. The Hopper/Joey can have more than one remote paired. DISH will sell you additional remotes.

I've ordered a second Dish remote for one of my Hoppers thats in a large family room. Like the original post we like two remotes in that room. I just wanted to confirm how to pair the second remote. Is it Sat button, Sys info on front of Hopper, then Sat button again ? The installer told me but that was over a week ago. I should have written it down then.
Thanks

For the record older 32.0 remotes work fine too and are pretty cheap on eBay. To pair just press menu twice on an existing remote or Sys info on the front panel, then hold the remote close to the antenna and press Sat on the remote you want to pair.

The "pair" button the 40.0 remotes is now the same as the input button, which is just below the SAT button

In theory, you could put a Hopper and 2 Joeys in one central closet, feed 2 TV's with each (= 6 TVs), and have 2 remotes paired to each of the 3 devices, right (6 remotes)? You do have to watch the same thing on the two linked TVs, but if they are in spare rooms, it's just an option. Of course all rooms need to be within "X" of the closet (50'?)

In theory, yes. It is better to put the Hoppers/Joeys where needed to make HD wiring better but the thought of a centrally located Joey feeding two or more SD TVs via a RF monitor is on my mind.

Apologies, what is a RF monitor?

My way of misspelling "RF modulator". :)

I'm splitting 1 Joey this way now but I'm wondering if I can use 2 UHF remotes - one in each room?

Also, I was wondering if I could put 2 Joey's in the closet and use the same UHF to control 2 different Joey's? I know I could do this with the old 722/622 setup I had but that was with IR.

You can put two remotes on the same Hopper/Joey but a remote cannot control more than one Hopper/Joey.
