Strange remote issue
Posted 14 December 2008 - 11:53 AM
This sounds like a stupid question, but I cannot figure it out.
I have 811 receiver, hooked to an old SDTV via composite, working great. A few days ago I hooked up a new HD LCD to it. The only thing I changed was to remove the composite cable and connect component and digital audio out to HDTV.
There is now a huge lag navigating the DISH menu. TV works fine with the same remote. The remote works with receiver as well, but I have to press the keys multiple times to get any response. Tried to change batteries, reset receiver to factory specs, plug out for 24 hrs, to no avail. Programmed several other remotes, including another dedicated DISH remote with the same results.
Now, my TV remote has a very fast response with the receiver, but when I try to navigate with it, remote keys trigger random functions. It is interesting that this is the only remote that works fast with 811, but it does not work properly.
Any bright ideas are appreciated.

There are several remotes that are used with the 811 receiver. Our specifications show that IR and UHF can be used with this receiver. You may need to readdress the remote to your receiver giving the remote a different address.
How close is the new TV to the receiver? It sounds like you are getting IR interference since the remote is working but is slow to respond. Try moving the receiver away from the TV to see if that will resolve the issue. Please let me know what happens. Thanks.
