My setup is a single DirecTV HR54 Genie, an HDMI splitter, and two TVs (one is Vizio, the other Samsung).

My goal is to configure two RC73 remotesóboth controlling the HR54 via RF, and each remote configured to control a different TV via IR.

While itís easy to make both the remotes control the Genie, I canít find any way to program the different TVs. The box seems to assume a single TV, and it always programs both remotes to control the same TV.

Is there a way to customize the remote programming so that each controls a different TV?

Don't program it through the receiver, just enter codes directly into the remote:

1. press and hold MUTE & SELECT for two blinks, release
2. enter 10812 for the Samsung

on the other remote:

1. press and hold MUTE & SELECT for two blinks, release
2. enter 11758 for vizio
