If this were a permanent set up, I think I would make a new remote
transmitter that included an address code for each vcr, then make a small
reciver for each vcr. The receibver would be glued to the ir window of the
vcr and would relay the command only if that unit were addressed. This way
you wouldn't have to hack the vcrs.
