If you use different brands of receivers or ones that used different remote
codes then you could control more than one receiver with one blaster. There
is support for locking to keep multiple instances from trying to grab it at
once. If you have the same unit for all then you will most likely need to
use multiple blasters with optical isolation between receivers (Thats the
route I used)
