      Different remotes for different boxes

      Is there a way of making a remote unique to box. I'm going to have two boxes in the same room for a while and don't want them doing the same thing, or more likely one deleting a program as a result of key presses for the other box

      I don't think it is possible. What you can do is set up your phone/tablet to act as a remote for one of the boxes and use the remote for the other. Details here for Apple and Andriod -
