Using two remotes with one Premier

I have a premier XL in my family room. I am using an HDMI splitter and repeater to mirror that signal to the kitchen. Everything works great and I have a single Tivo broadcasting to two rooms.

I have a tivo slider remote with bluetooth for the kitchen and have no problem controlling the family room Tivo from the kitchen.

I tried to get a second bluetooth remote because I wanted to keep the cabinet closed with the Tivo inside. No dice. Only one bluetooth remote works with a Tivo.

Great. So I bought a Tivo IR adapter that connects to the USB port. This works, but only with the bluetooth dongle unplugged. Does anyone know how to get two USB products working with a single Tivo?

Use the ios or android tivo app to control the tivo over your network with your phone, tablet, or ipod touch

And the answer from Tivo is only one at a time.
