Question about LG Televison & Video
Here's a suggestion though...if there's one tv on the right and one on the left, make a small cardboard "divider". bend a thin piece of cardboard into an L shape so that one side lays flat on the tv panel, and and the other points right at you. Put the divider on the right hand side of the IR receiver of the TV on the left, and vice/versa for the TV on the right.
In a worst case scenario, you may hove to practically build a small tube around the IR receiver on the TV so that you practically have to be in front of it to use the remote (the smaller the tube, the less sensative it will be to the other remote. the deeper it is affects this too)
Experiment with what works best for your specific layout.
There used to be a time where you could get ultraviolet emitter/detector pairs, and I'd tell you to go ultraviolet on one set, but at the moment, this is the best I can suggest.
Something that MAY work (although I have less faith in this) is to experiment with different shades of red gels (light filters) matching up the same shade of red to each remote and TV. IE - cut a tiny strip of the shade-1 and place it over the transmitting LED of one transmitter, and likewise on the corresponding TV. This may limit the amount of light that gets through from each remote to each TV enough that only the remote for it's corresponding TV works.
And finally, this one can take some experimenting but it works like the building of a tube.
IF there is a way (without breaking boards etc) to move the IR receiver deeper into the TV, you will eventually find that ideal depth where it only responds to a remote directly in front of it, or at least stops responding to the other remote.
I have in the past suggested the tube method on the remote but inevitably people kept breaking off whatever was attached to the remote...but if you can move the transmitter diode back into the casing (again without breaking anything) the remote will be much more directional and less likely to control anything that it's not being pointed right at.
