One xmitter/two receivers with Sennheiser 100ENG?

I have two Sennheiser EW100 ENG wireless setups, and I want to use a single transimitter and two receivers (each on a different camera). Will this work? If so, should the "pilot" be turned off for such a setup? Thanks

The transmitter emits a signal regardless of what's out there to receive it. There is no feedback to the transmitters from any receivers. Each reciever interacts with whatever signal is out there that it's tuned to. Neither receiver knows that another one is out there.

So any number of receivers can be used. As always, the pilot tone is optional. The transmitter includes it, and the receiver uses it to help it avoid responding to other transmissions on nearby frequencies.

Thanks. I was pretty sure it would work, and when I tried it all seemed OK, but I was slightly concerned that a conflict could arise from both receivers having pilot on.
