I have a PVR 500 using 1 channel source (my cable box is controled by usbuirt). My PVR 500 have more 1 input avaiable and my doubt is, can I connect another cable box to my pvr500 to have 2 different channels sources avaiable? And making this, I will be able to wach 2 different channels one in my core/hybrid and another on MD?
And making this, I will have two cable boxes but with the same IR groups. How to send separete IR Codes if they use the same group of codes?
Im using one usbuirt and one IR emmiter 286 xantech.
I bought one connector block Xantech ZC21 + 1 IR emmiter 286 to try get this working.. but I donīt think this will work because Im unable to set cable box 1 send ir codes to zone 1 and cable box 2 send codes to zone 2..... anybody can help me? I just need watch 2 different channels in two different places...
Sorry about my english.
Just connect each cable box to a PVR500 input and set each up as normal...each box will be controlled independantly. The only thing you need to watch out for if the two cable boxes are located near one another is that IR will 'leak' from the emitter on one Cable Box and accidentally control the other box! Separate the boxes or place some black electrical tape over the emiiter so that no IR 'leaks' out.
All the best
