I'd like to connect two TVs to my DVR (the AVR I'm considering has 2 HDMI outputs). The TVs are on back to back walls. I want to control the DVR from either room.

Any thoughts on how I can do this?

I'm thinking some sort of IR blaster extender, but I would need to find one with 2 IR receivers so I can send inputs to the DVR from either room.

Your input would be greatly appreciated.

Easiest thing to do is buy an RF remote.

Or make the existing AVR remote RF by buying a Next Generation.

What DVR do you have? If you're interested in upgrading / changing, Tivo Roamio comes with an RF remote.
