It seems like you want something more sophisticated than simply covering the
IR receiver window or making the remote directional.
If so, I would suggest making one of those remote control extending devices
(just an integrated IR receiver a 555 and an IR LED + couple of other
passive elements) Except, instead of one LED you use 20 (if that's the
number of the vcr s). Now, place each LED in front of the individual IR
receiver window (and cover it) and use series of switches to control, which
LED (or group of LEDs) will be powered.
Use your remote controller as usual.
