Mid-ship and over the driver tv's

Does anyone have a mid-ship and over the driver TV set? My new coach has this set up and when I turn the mid-ship TV on, the TV in the over head over the driver comes on as well. Is this normal or am I doing something wrong? Is there some way of preventing both TV's from coming on when one is turned on?

Mine does the same thing. It is because they are both the same brand and use the same remote. If I turn it on manually with the button on the side of the TV then I can just have one on.

I have that same set up with the same "problem". I usually just leave both TVs on, it's my surround sound.

Same here. Both TV come on. I just turn off the overhead TV manually.

Had I ordered my coach I would not have included the overhead TV option. Only used it once, on purpose, in 2 years. In my case it's a waste of a good TV and cabinet space.

Maybe if I get motivated enough I'll remove and replace so I can unplug it.

Mine do the same. If I get within 3 feet of it and aim at the bottom left I can turn on just that one.

If you REALLY want to solve the problem, you may (since they are probably recent model sets) go with WIFI instead of infra-red (for the remote). Then you assign a different IP address to each TV.

Finally, you need to buy a cheap app for your smartphone and/or tablet and use THAT for your remote.

Involved I know, but will solve the issue assuming your new TV's are WIFI compatible. The other BIG advantage is that you can control EVERYTHING within the coach from a single smartphone or tablet and you don't even have to be in the same room (no line of sight required).

Just a thought...... I'm going with this system in the near future, as soon as my old Pronto Universal Remote craps out.
