    We have 2 sky+ boxes in our house and we are having a problem with handheld remotes interferring with each other, ie 1 remote for one room will change channels on a box in another room.

    Dose anybody have any ideas how we can cure the problem

    Many thanks

    how far away are the rooms and do you use link eyes on either box? There is a very simple solution, but its a tad expensive, though anyone with 2 sky+ boxes shouldnt worry about finding the cash!

    u will have to position boxes in such a way that the remote window is hidden from other remote, very tricky as they are almost omnidirectional.

    U could try a piece of tin foil with blu tack over the receiver on each box and reduce its receiving capabilities ie just leave a small part of receiver open. I can do this with 2 boxes sitiing on top of each other! but it takes skill.

    If u are bamboozeled by this post back.
