Re: [DTA] 2 DTA boxes in same room

Yes, I can control my Thomson DCI105 DTA with the "platinum" remotes that were supplied with my Cisco RNG100 and RNG150 STBs.

I have the DTA tucked behind the VCR it's connected to, and use the DTA's cabled IR receiver "bug" to control it.

I slid a piece of black tubing over that IR bug to prevent the remote for the RNG box, that I also use in that room, from accidentally changing the DTA's channel that I have it set to record from.

To then change the DTA's channel, I either temporarily slide the tubing off the IR bug, or (more often) just stick a remote over the top the VCR to hit the IR sensor on the front panel of the DTA.
