Anyone know if I can change TV2 to use IR versus UHF? I am trying to hook up my Slingbox to TV2 and I do not believe it supports UHF.

Sorry, the slingbox does not support UHF Pro, only IR; and the 622 only supports UHF Pro for TV2.

Greater Los Angeles area.
it's sad, there are multiple inputs with the slingbox and often that second tuner is only used to record stuff, it'd be nice to be able to *switch* to that input while someone at home is using tv1 to watch stuff! I'm sure there is some kind of IR -> UHF hack... at least i remember I had some device years ago which would take IR and extend it using UHF... probably not but it'd be nice!

OR
E* enable some kind of TV1/TV2 control over Ethernet!
OR
Allow us to choose which TV can be controlled by UHF and IR!

It seems that it would be very easy for E* to implement TV2 control by IR using a different IR address.
