    I've gone through the set up procedure over 6 times to enable the S3 remote to use the #1 DVR switch for my S3 and #2 for my Humax DVDR-Tivo. Every time it switches both Tivo's to the last inputted remote code. This was easy when I did it with my DVDR and S2 and it went very easily a couple years ago.

    Yes I've covered the sensor on the other Tivo - gone to extent of overing the entire face with 2 thick magazines.

    Help. Without this set up having both Tivos in the same room is useless.

    Program the remote first.

    Only get one Tivo in the system info screen at a time ;). Once in, confirm the intended one switches from zero to one and get out of the system info screen.

    Then do the same for the other setting it to two.

    Done deal.

    Did you program the dvr1/dvr2 switch? dvr1/dvr2 doesn't mean Address #1/ Address #2, it comes set zero on both sides of the switch.
