Two Panasonic TV's in the same room - remote issues

Apologies if this has been asked before and and if it has please point me there.

I have two new Panasonic TV's in my lounge, one for family TV, one for me for gaming.
I really should have bought a different make when getting my new gaming TV today because we now have the issue of either remote from either telly controlling both of them which is obviously not desirable. Is there any way around this problem?

Some Panasonic equipment allows you to change the "remote control code" so they ignore each other's remote control. You would need to look in the manual for each set to find out if that is possible in your case.

Had a look in the manuals, nothing in either :( ; the two TV's are:

TX-L50B6B and a TX-L47ET60B

Any chance that someone has a link to somewhere on the internet that can provide this info?

The easiest way is to switch the gaming tv on and off with the switch on the tv and cover up the ir sensor with a little piece of black tape.

I wish there was a way :( - with 20-odd Panasonic TV's on the shop floor, it's so so easy to control 4 or 5 TV's at a time when you're doing a demo - "oops sorry madam for accidentally putting that TV onto the adult channel" :rotfl:

Cover the IR sensor on your gaming TV, and control it with the panasonic phone / tablet app?

Thanks for the replies guys, cover the sensor it is then.
The sensor on the gaming TV (TX-L47ET60B) is a bitch to cover though; three little lights/sensors contained in the clear plastic extension piece on the bottom of the TV makes it awkward to deal with, oh well.
