    Hi Mates :)

     

    Had so much help and offered it over the years on this forum...

     

    Just wondered if anyone knows how to solve this issue ??

     

    We have an LG DVD hard drive recorder and at the side of it an LG blu ray player with surround sound, bit of a messy set up but it works for us.

     

    My problem is that the LG remotes both turn each other off and this is very frustrating. IS there are way to get them to each to only operate the correct designated machine ? Can anyone help please ?

     

    Thanks

    Also have the same issue with Samsung tv's. Other side of the house...different tv models but my OH who wakes at strange hours often turns on the tv in someone elses bedroom!

     

    It would be interesting to see whether a universal remote would solve the problem. The LG code to turn on the dvd and the blue ray would likely be the same but perhaps not??? You can pick one up for a few Dollars on e bay.

    Another possible fix. I have some combination LG DVD / video combination machines. The remotes for these also operates an LG tv. For whatever reason one of the remotes is faulty and it doesn't work the dvd anymore but it still works with a tv....seems to indicate that these devices work at different frequencies? Don't know about dvd and blu ray frequesncies though.

    You could always use a small piece of lead shielding. Simply place it in front of the device you don't want to change ensuring it completely covers the IR receiver then sit back and use the remote control with no issues whatsoever

    Would you really need a piece of lead - a coffee cup in the wrong place seems enough to stop our remotes working...

    Oh and isn't that frustrating? :biglaugh:We (well me actually) sit there and keep pressing and pressing forgetting that once upon a time we actually had to get up to change channel and we can still do the same but we just keep pressing and pressing and pressing........:biglaugh::wink::arghh:

    We have a couple of Panasonic items and there is a way to assign each remote to a specific item, so you don't get that problem. Dont know if it is the same with the brands you have mentioned.

     

    Panasonic had this information in the manuals, but the manufacturers might be able to send you the info if they didn't put it inor yours?
