A few nights ago I was watching TV in my bedroom (TV2 output of a 722) and my channel changed. Then the guide appeared on the TV, scrolled up and down, then canceled. Then I saw a channel number being entered. I guess a neighbor just got a new 722. I changed my remote's address and problem stopped. I was surprised of the range of the remote. My closest neighbor does not have dish so it has to be someone at least 300' away. I have my remote antenna in the attic because I was having trouble getting my remote to work with it on the back of the receiver.

It might be that when you changed your remote address that you also chnaged your neighbor's. :grin:
