HDVR2 remote confuses Zenith TV
Posted 24 October 2003 - 07:24 PM
Alas, I have run into one very irritating problem.
Sometimes when I'm just casually using the remote, my TV switches inputs from the video input (DirecTV) to the RF input (antenna). Then I have to hit the TV Input button to switch back to DirecTV.
I have a 1996-era Zenith TV, code 0070. It was doing this before I programmed the remote with the code for my TV, so I think the problem is some of the signals for the HDVR2 are very similar to the signals for my TV.
Usually it happens when I press the Down arrow. Sometimes it happens with other keys though too.
Has anyone else seen this behavior?
Covering the TV IR receiver isn't possible, as I do need to control the TV volume, power, etc.
Buying a new TV isn't the best solution..

You may want to check page 115 of your manual and change the HDVR2 remote address.
"In an effort to increase your cable and satellite bills beyond the point of affordability and to further pad the pockets of our executives..."
Check out my list of links.

It doesn't seem to be related to any particular button on the HDVR2 remote that does it either. Sometimes it's the Down button, sometimes the Guide button, sometimes other buttons.

I have the same problem with my Cambridge Soundworks reciver and tried 1 and 2 (the only options mentioned in the manual) with no luck. I didn't know you could go up to 9!
I will try this as soon as I get home.

They all screw with the volume on my Cambridge Soundworks receiver. This is very annoying.
