    I have some older series 3 HD TiVos that have standard remotes with the 1-2 switch to allow one TiVO peanut remote to control two TiVOs. These older series 3s are all in basement rooms and lightly used on a daily basis.

    I now also have a 4-tuner premeire in our main bedroom, but am using an older Series 3 (OLED) glo remote with it. All works good.

    I was thinking of moving one of the older series 3 TiVos from the basement and stack it on top of the bedroom's 4-tuner Premiere, but then wanted to somehow use only one remote for both. Is this possible with the Series 3 GLO remote or does the remote HAVE to have that 1-2 switch in order to be able to do this?

    It has to have the 1-2 switch or you have to manually change the remote code on the remote every time you want to use the other TiVo.

    Though my GLO remote has a nasty habit of leaking the setting of one switch's code to the other. So sometimes it goes from 1/2 to 2/2 or 1/1.

    Actually, I just remembered that I have a Harmony 200 remote (3 devices). Any chance a harmony remote can be programmed to control two different TiVos?

    Yeah. When you use your "original" remote to teach the Harmony just use any peanut remote and program it to have the remote code for the TiVo you want to control.

    I used to have five or six TiVo devices with different remote codes entered into my Harmony One to easily switch between multiple TiVos.
