2 fibe receivers in one room, no 2nd remote address ?

Hi Guys, I finally installed a second tv to the basement, and I realized that I can not assign a second address to the second remote to control the second receiver, as I could with my older satellite boxes.
That is obviously a pain as both receivers would change at the same time.
Only thing I am doing now is turning one sideways and only get close to change it and leaving it at that..(Game on etc)

I get that this is the reason I primarily got it for,meaning putting it on a second channel and leaving it there on the background, but I was wondering if anyone has a way of improving that ? Any other way to control the 2 different receivers ? And no, I can't really place the second one anywhere else as my equipment and tvs, are in specific locations, wires through walls, and all that..

Similar thread but since it's Rogers, all of the suggestions may not apply. See posts 2, 3, 12 of the link below.


An interference cover/blocker, as mentioned in the above thread should work for the one STB you wish to leave on the same channel.

Also, check out the following post, useful for those new to the forum:

Bell has a Fibe TV app for Apple and Android devices that allows you to control any of your TV STBs, among other things. It's not an infrared controller so line of sight doesn't matter.
Turn your tablet and smartphone into a remote control. Play, pause, rewind, fast forward, change channels and access the guide

If that's not suitable, Motorola makes an RF remote that MTS and Sasktel sell if you have friends in Manitoba or Saskatchewan (I don't think Bell sells it.) You may also be able to find it on eBay since AT&T in the U.S. sell it.
