    How do I control two cable boxes with one slingbox?

    h2theizu

      So everything is working perfectly, then while trying an advanced set up, I ran into an issue....

       

      I have a Verizon FIOS (Motorola) cable box connected to my sling box via component and spdif ; every sounds and looks good and I can control it with one of the IR Blasters.

       

      I have a second indentical FIOS box hooked up via coax and it looks and sounds good as well when I switch sources BUT when ever I program the remote or control one of the functions, the signal is sent to both boxes so they both change channel / power off at the same time...

       

       

      I thought each of the IR heads could control different devices...

       

      Is it possible to have two cable boxes hooked up as different sources and control each cable box independently?
