can I use one remote to operate Directv DVR and Tivo in one room

I have Directv HR10-250 and standalone Tivo if I use directv remote set to 1 and tivo remote set to 2 it does not work. It changes directv remote set to 2 automatically. I tried even shutdowwn one reciever and then set remote address.

Anybody know solution to this. Either I can use two different remotes (if they not changing cannel to each other) or if it possible by one remote that will be great.

Any help i can get on this.............

Put the standalone in standby

Put the standalone in standby mode and cover the IR sensor.  Then put the dtivo on the system information screen and hit tivo/directv button and pause for 5 seconds and choose a code other than 0. Make sure you are covering the remote totally so that it doesn't bring the standalone out of standby mode. I think that may be the problem you are running into.

You can also get the directivo remote that has a 1/2 on the bottom instead of sat/tv and that will allow you to control both units with one remote.
