two different types of object

mu'tlheghvam vImughnIS: 
"You (pl.) honor me and my family"

1. qorDu'wIj jIH je tuquvmoH 
only jIH is object
"you honor me; and my family"

2. qorDu'wIj jIH je boquvmoH
only qorDu' is object, jIH could also be the object, but only if it were a noun.
"you honor <my family and I>"
"you honor my family and the viewing screen"

A solution could be two sentences:
qorDu'wIj boquvmoH 'ej jIH tuquvmoH.
"you honor my family and you honor me."
   (but this looks so long)
