V6 box - RF connection with 2 remotes

I have a multi room set up......one V6 box in loft, with HDMI cables feeding 3 TV's downstairs ...so remote with RF needed. Have only been able to get one remote control to work on RF. I read somewhere that two or more remote controls will not work on RF mode. Is this the case? Hope you can help.

Re: V6 box - RF connection with 2 remotes

On IR its generic codes. On RF it should pair with a specific box AFAIK ( @BenMcr can you confirm/ deny?)

Even if its not the case, using the phone app will work fine.

Re: V6 box - RF connection with 2 remotes

I'm pretty sure you can pair more than one remote to the same box, although I can't remember what the upper limit is.

What you can't do is pair one remote to multiple boxes in RF mode for obvious reasons!

What instructions are being followed for the remote pairing?

Re: V6 box - RF connection with 2 remotes

LOL, I was reading "multiroom setup" as there was another V6 with another remote somewhere in the house. In addition to the unfortunate box banished to the loft. And OP was trying to pair one with one box and the other with the other.

I'm overthinking things....

@artmcclin  If you are trying to pair multiple remotes with one box, see Bens answer.

Re: V6 box - RF connection with 2 remotes

As an addition to what I said before, although the remotes have a decent RF range on them, they aren't magic 😉

Depending where some of the rooms are compared to the V6 box, there may just be too much in the way to work even in RF mode.

If that is the case, then the TV Control app is the way to go.
