Using multiple Boxee Boxes in the same location

So you have experienced the ease of accessing all your multimedia files via your TV utilising the Boxee Box by D-Link and you now want to add more units around your home. You will come into one major issue on your way to multimedia freedom… the Boxee Box remote controls all the units in your home. Argh!!

Not to worry there is a really simple and easy fix for this.

Step 1:

Go and unplug the power from all of the Boxee Boxes except for one (physically remove the power cable or switch off at the wall otherwise you will find that the other Boxee Boxes will start up and interfere with the process). This will be the one we want to configure with the remote first. Basicaly what we will be doing is pairing the Boxee Box remote with the Boxee Box.

Step 2:

Boxee Box Pairing

Power up the Boxee Box and when it has loaded to the main menu hold the Boxee Box remote within 5cm of the glowing Boxee logo on the front of the Boxee Box. While it is in the location press and hold the “Enter/OK” button on the navigation side of the remote for 10 seconds. You will not see any notification or hear any notification but this will pair this remote to the Boxee Box.

Step 3:

Test to make sure this has been successful you should be able to navigate the main menu and control the Boxee Box. Enjoy watching your movies without someone else controlling your Boxee Box from the other room.

You can proceed to do this to all other devices in your house, just make sure to unplug all other Boxee Boxes before pairing the remote. If you have been unsuccessful just repeat step 2 until successful.

Well there you go nice and easy way to get all your Boxee Boxes running at the same time!!
