Are both remotes on the 922 RF? I believe that tv1 is not and tv 2 is. If this is the case can you use the tv2 remote on tv1? I don't plan on using tv2 and I'd hate to have to go back to infrared.

I'm taking you mean 622, tv1 is IR, tv2 is UHF, tv2 romote will work tv1 but only when in single mode.

I was also having problems with my UHF remote while watching TV2 in the bedroom. I fixed my problem by attaching a 18" piece of coax to the RF antenna port, attaching a barrel connector to the other end and screwing on the antenna to that. This allowed me to place the antenna to the side of the 622 and gave me a lot of range. I don't know if I was experiencing interference with the antenna before but now it works fine in my bedroom that's about 50 feet away. This was a simple solution and it might help. Give it a try and report back with your results.
