There are various ways to shield/block the stray IR from getting to the IR sensors in your equipment. You can relocate the equipment, put something in between to block the light, or partially cover the IR sensors (electrical tape with a tiny pin-hole often works), which reduces IR sensitivity. Other solutions are reducing the TV's brightness or using RF remotes.

Less productive suggestions:
Cover the TV with a quilt to test during the 10 minute startup period. You can at least verify the IR interference is coming from the TV.
Use a cardboard tube in front of the IR Sensor or 35 mm film negative to try to block it out so only remote IR directly at the receiver is "seen".
Always turn the TV on 10 minutes in advance.
Look to Sony to have a fix for the excess IR generated. Several Samsung models have updates available for IR interference, but it may involve changing internals. Sony might have something similar for your model - dunno.
Move furniture that the TV signal may be bouncing off of to be seen by the receiver's sensor.
UHF control of TV1 (also possible in dual mode, but you only have one UHF Pro remote) is the most direct solution.

PS: Bravia is LCD not plaz
I know. It's just as common a problem with LCDs, due to the flourescent backlight.

I meant for you to mention receiver MODE. If Single mode, just cover the IR sensors and use the 21.0 remote. If Dual, you'd need a 6.2, 6.3, 6.4, or 21.0 to control TV1 via UHF with IR sensor covered.
