Something to try. If your remote relies on wi-fi setup. Modem/routers often have a guest wifi network. Try setting one up on the guest network. This might allow the use of one network for one remote and the other network on the other remote.

Another thing to try. Turn off one tv and remove the batteries from the remote. Pair the working tv and its remote. Now turn off that tv and remove the batteries on that remote and turn on the other tv, insert the batteries on the second remote and pair them. Now turn on both tvs and add batteries. Test.

It's the IR blaster, it usually needs line of sight to the TV.
I have the same issue with TV and Monitor.

What was your solution? I have a smart TV and an m8 smart monitor in the same room and the controls interfere with each other its annoying. Lmk if you found a solution. Contemplating on buying a 3rd party control for the TV only.

The smartthings app switches each tv on or off individually.
