Sony remote control conflict

Sorry if this is duplicate post but I don't think I did it right first time.
I have two Sony TV's in a cabinet one above the other. One is a new Sony 42V4100 LCD and the other is a conventional CRT model about 8 years old. The remote is on the same frequency for both, so when I turn on one, they both go on. The sensors are about 30 inches apart. Any ideas?

    Sorry about your rating. I thought this was a "help" site--I didn't realize it was a competition. My purpose in writing is that I wanted to make absolutely sure that there wasn't some 2nd frequency buried in the remote/tv/menu or some other remote "trick" that I was missing. I know I could build/buy a remote extender and put the sensor a few feet away at a different angle but I was hoping for a simpler solution. Also considered a three sided cover over over one TV sensor so the the IR would have to be bounced in via a mirror or even off the ceiling, but I don't have that much free time to experiment. I think my worst case situation now is that if I cover the sensor, I can use a digital converter (which I'll need next year anyhow) of a differnet brand to change channels, although I will have to turn the set on and off manually.

As Sony has same remote frequency for its TVs so option is left to unplug that tv which you don't want to power up or put piece of paper tape on front of remote sensor in tv and make it blind for IR waves.
No way to set both tv on different remote frequencies.

    Thanks for understanding.

    Its help site and have sort of competition among experts, that is ranking.

    There is nothing hidden in remote tricks like second frequency etc. Sony have option remote-1 and 2 in VHS VCRs only.

Remote not working

I have rebooted several times during the reinstallation of the software. I also tried different USB, but no luck! Could it be something with the USB driver anyway? The system says the drivers are ok though.. Does anybody know the life expectancy of the batteries to this remote? I don't think it is the batteries though, because the red light on the remote is bright.

Check this remote control for its infrared emission. Visit the site named 'Electro-help' for more details. Check this link and select the site named above. View it in 'Flip card' option, which can be selected from the drop down box menu by the [Sidebar] tag, at the left top left corner of the display window. It will make search easy. Some times, the ads attached with each posts both at the right and bottom, might help you to find the availability of spare parts. There are more than 640 posts to different brand TVs now. Will be updated daily.

Whats the code for a Sony t.v


Codes for the Innovage Jumbo for Sony TVs are: 002, 006, 071, 128

Manual code entry instructions:

1. Switch on the TV
2. Point the remote at the TV and hold the "CODE SEARCH" button until the small red light illuminates and stays lit.
3. Press the "TV" button the remote
4. Use the number keys on the remote to enter the first code from the list above 0 0 2

The red light will flash each time you press a number key and will switch off after you enter the final number.

5. Press the ON/OFF button on the remote. If the TV switches off, switch it back on and test some of the other buttons to make sure they work and contol the correct functions.

If the device does not switch off or many of the buttons don't work (or control the wrong function), repeat the above process from step 2.

Please note: not all universal remotes will work with all TVs

If you have tried all of the above codes and still cannot get your remote to work with your TV, please post back for further assistance.

Replacement Sony RM ED009 remote not working

Remote sensor on the tv may not be working. Try using a camera by aiming the remote IR sensor of the remote control at the camera lens then press and hole any button and check if you see a flicker of light. If you do, the remote control is transmitting, if not, the remote control is not working. This will tell you if the remote sensor on the tv is not getting the signal from the remote control
