    slingbox 500 changes channels on both set-top boxes

    wtfsling

      I have two set-top boxes, one for watching locally and the other (dvr) dedicated to the slingbox.  The problem is, when I change the channel on the slingbox, it changes both the dvr channel and the other set-top box.  I have tried physically putting the slingbox behind the dvr, but it still changes channels on both.

       

      I can only assume it's using an RF signal, since IR would be blocked the way I have this placed.  If I plug in the IR into the back of the slingbox, does this turn off RF remote support?

       

       

      UPDATE: I moved the sling into a different room and don't have the issue any longer.  It works better for my situation anyway since it was pretty crowded in the first location.  Thanks for the info on the IR.
