26 October 2011 Question by: Jeremy | Product code: 73-4404
Q. Can this receiver be positioned near a second so that they both will see the IR signal but be programmed to work with 4 different remote control buttons. Regards Jeremy
A. Hi Jeremy, thanks for your question. This seems do-able in principle in that they can be physically located close together. But each one will only operate on two channels (lets call them A & B), it is not clear if these will be the same channels for both ie when they operate remote control one – channel A on both units will operate. There may not be 4 different channel options such as A,B C & D, it is however possible to have a multitude of remotes all of which operate the one unit – ie they are all set to channel A
