      Two sky boxes - using the remote

      I have a sky+ box and a sky hd box beside each other, and to only control one box at a time I place a book in front of the box not being used.

      I was googling lat night wondering if there is an easy way of not having to block the signal on one box while controlling the other. I found some instructions and after following these I now canít control the sky+ box with the sky hd remote but I can still control both boxes with the sky+ remote, the instructions didnít work to isolate the hd box from the sky+ remote.

      Does anybody know of a straightforward way that to control both boxes with separate remotes without having to block off the front of one of the boxes, or even to have one remote that controls both boxes separately (Harmony all in one remote?)?
