I think you mean you'll get two separate blasters, if your goal is
simultaneous tunes. :)  The dual headed blasters send the same signal out of
both IR emitters.  So in order to tune two devices, the receivers must be
configured to accept different remote codes, and then you must tune the
devices sequentially.
