Remote control conflict with two Zinwell converter boxes?

I own a Zinwell ZAT-970A digital to analog TV converter box. I use it successfully with a VCR that I own, and would now like to get a second, probably a Zinwell ZAT-950A this time, to use with a second VCR that I own.  My concern is that they will not be far from each other, and I fear that everytime I use either remote to control its box, that it will change both boxes.  I've tried calling Zinwell, can't reach anyone, and I've emailed them with no reply.  
Any opinions?

Be sure that your TV is set to channel 3 or 4 if you are using the RF cable or Video 1, etc if using the Audio/Video cable.  The Installation  Guide should appear.  The "improved" picture that you are seeing is simply the analog throughput, not the digital conversion.

RCA's site list codes 25 and 006 for Magnavox cable boxes. Maybe one of these will work for the converter. The RCA site has a link so you can look up codes. Click on "find your remote control codes here" and pick your model number, then the type of device you want to control. If the codes I gave don't work, maybe try some of the other brands of cable box codes. You might find one that will work.

I have a zinwell converter box but no remote so volume is stuck low. I have a one for all universal remote how do I program it to my converter box. Like would it be satellite aux or cable


Volume is not controlled by the STB, but by the TV to which connected. Use the code search feature of your One For All remote to find a Zinwell code. If a search through all codes stored in your OFA remote fails, you may have to try a different universal remote. All universal remotes, even OFA, do not store all possible codes.

I need a code to progam this remote to control a zinwell zat857 dtv converter box! please


OK, I have a Zinwell box that was working perfectly until a friend tried it in his new apartment. Two problems (a) he misplaced the remote over there, and (b) he reprogrammed it so it now only gets four crappy channels instead of the previous fifteen.
Will try to get him to search for remote. Meanwhile ar 4am:
I have two universal remotes, old Magnavox and newish Ptimesat. Primesat looks good but doesn't seem to have search fubction -- does it> Tried to get Zinwell to work on Aux wth code 591 but no luck, Search on Magnavox got one partial result but failed again. Help?
(b) Is there any way to reprogram the box manually, without a remote? I want my channels!
