old tivo remote keeps turning v6 box on?

we just had a new v6 box installed but also have the old TiVo box until all programs have been watched and both boxes are used with the same tv via splitter (im guessing) but the old TiVo remote keeps turning on the v6 box and recording stuff on it we don't want but the v6 remote is fine and doesn't turn on the old TiVo box or anything.

how do I stop the old TiVo remote messing with the v6 box and keep it to controlling the old TiVo box only?

thank you Smiley Happy

You would have to cover the IR sensor on the V6 box to do this so it blocks old remotes
