    I just purchased and setup my new TiVo Premiere alongside a TiVo Series 3. I used the Series 3 remote to assign a different remote address to each TiVo so I can use just the one remote on both. Now it seems the remote that came with my Premiere (with the A, B, C, D buttons) is controlling BOTH my TiVos. Any idea how to get the Premiere reote to control just the Premiere?

    My remote addresses are as follows"

    Premiere: 1
    Series 3: 2

    Based on the linked article below, you can't use a Premiere remote to control 2 TiVo's - see first paragraph.
    http://support.tivo.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/284/kw/remote%20control/r_id/100041

    I believe assigning different remote addresses is for the situation where you control 2 different TiVo's with 2 different remotes (Like you already have). Sounds like you did something wrong since the Premiere also controls the S3. Redo after reading the link below.

    No, most of the post S1 peanut remotes have a 1-2 dvr switch so that a single remote can control 2 tivos using separate remote codes. It's stated on the help page you linked to.

    Switching addresses is two stage process, tivo & tivo remote. You have two tivos and two tivo remotes that's four things to program, sounds like only 3 are, the Premiere remote is still set to zero address, reprogram it for address 1.

    Doubt it. You can't set a Tivo to respond to a different ir code without first changing the ir code that the remote uses.

    That did the trick! Thanks greatly to you and all that responded. I didn't realize the Premiere remote was set at 0, so it to 1 did the trick. It's weird that TiVo would take the 1/2 DVR switch away from their latest remotes.

    I can't say that all TiVos will respond to a remote with address 0, but I know Series2, Series3 and Series4 models do.

    There were two tivo remotes in the house, no one said the Premiere remote was used to change the Premiere itself to address 1. :)

    No one said one way or the other so your statement of fact has no basis.

    Whos speaking in facts, to answer remote questions on a daily basis you have to assume alot because of missing facts.

    The fact here is my solution was the answer for the OP, in the first post the OP wrote that they had Tivo Premiere & Series 3 tivo, two remotes! With series 3 remote dual devices DVR1/DVR2, its like having 3 remotes in the house.
