Re: IRLinc Transmitter - can it's IR sensor be a receiver
Turns out it was even easier than I thought.
Tivo supports learning and 2 separate DVR code sets so it was pretty easy to configure the system using the Tivo remote control.
In the interests of completeness on the off chance anyone should be interested in the details read on. For the rest of you, you can stop reading here.
System has a Panasonic TV with a Panasonic surround-sound system connected to HDMI port 2 of the TV.
HDMI port 1 is connected to an HDMI switch with with I use 2 inputs. Switch input 1 is Tivo and switch input 2 is Apple TV.
Use this link you configure the Tivo remote to control the TV and surround sound volumehttp://support.tivo.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/294
Use this link to configure the Tivo and remote to support 2 DVRs which you need to have the remote map DVR1 to Tivo and DVR2 to Apple TVhttp://support.tivo.com/app/answers/det ... /related/1
On Apple TV go to Settings->General->Remotes to set up and learn a new remote with the Tivo Remote set to DVR2.
That's all there is to it - total cost $0.
Now all I have to do is sell my stupid RedEye on Ebay
