Cool. Could you or anyone else elaborate on how to do this? Am I
correct that you have an IR receiver attached to each PVR-x50 card, but
you're using one remote to send different signals to each IR receiver?
So tell me if I have this right: I'll have two PVR-250's, each with
it's own (included) IR receiver attached. I'll be able to control both
receivers with a single remote (I'd like to use the universal remote
that came with my NAD surround receiver - is that possible?). I'll also
need an IR blaster to control the two Dish receivers from Myth, right?
Can a single IR blaster be shared across two PVR-250's?
So many questions...sorry! Thanks for any help.
