How to control 3 identical Philips TVs separately with one remote control

I have 3 Philips TV 32 PFL 4508 in a monitors panel. Usually I use them in tandem but sometimes I need to access them individually. Each remote control is identical, so when I send a command all the TV receptors answer at the same time. Is there a way that I can link each TV with only one remote control ?

There is no really practical way to do this.
You would have to have some way of physically blocking individual IR receptors on the TVs.

However, you could purchase Powermid IR remote controllers and place them strategically around the room.

The transmitters are quite big so use these IR extenders at the TVs as they are small and neat.

This is an expensive & awkward solution, so buying 2 new different brand TVs might make more sense.

After further consideration, I realise that you will have customise the setup by adding 3  toggle switches to enable/disable transmitters as required.

So going for the second option above, you would have one transmitter under the desk with a switched
wire going to a receiver near each monitor. This setup will work.
