After quite a bit of time on the phone with the support line, the Radio Shack 15-2133 still controls all of the Hughes DirecTivo units in one AV cabinet at the same time. The Hughes "Peanut Remotes" respond to the "tivo pause #" sequence and work correctly to the intended tivounit. Am using device code 1142. Tried the learning function from a hughes peanut remote set to tivo unit 2 and that learned key worked OK. Leads me to believe the real hughes remote sends some type of "select unit number #" with every command, and the Kameleon does not. I would like all of the function keys to work correctly with two DirecTivo receivers, preferrably without learning every key twice. Any help appreciated, TIA!

You are absolutely right about the unit code being part of the IR signal. UEI doesn't have any codes with anything other than unit code zero for TiVo, so your only option to get the remote properly programmed is via JP1. (Note, as the Kameleon is upgradeable using WAV files, you might not need to actually build a JP1 cable as there is a program now that will generate the WAV file for you. I don't know much about this program yet, so you'll need to ask in the JP1 group)

Rob,
Thanks for the quick reply and direction. Will check out the JP1 group. Would you happen to know if the JP1 upgrade (with a cable or wav) will set/store all codes for the Hughes Tivo with the unit number prefix (times two) into the Kameleon, and all will fit into its memory? Or should I just go for a higher-end or different remote (sigh, the Kam looked promising)

The only Philips/Hughes tivo code you'll find in any universal remote, will be the default code, which will control any Philips/Hughes tivo no matter what remote address its set to.

Information about upgrading some JP1 remotes using WAV files can be found at [Link: groups.yahoo.com]

I'm not sure I understand the question, so I'll just tell you what you can do. With JP1 you can create a new code for the TiVo which has the unit code built in, so this code will only control (let's say) TiVo#1. You could then create another code to control TiVo#2 if you like, etc. You could then assign these codes to different device buttons, so (for example) the CBL button might control TiVo#1 and the SAT button might control TiVo#2, you see?

Hey, thanks to everyone for the replies.

I'm now reading through the JP1 stuff (with the wav file support) and will look at how to build the IR file using DirecTIVO remote numbers 1 (on the SAT/CBL device) and number 2 (guess on the CD device.
