I have a neighbor approximately 200 hundred feet away. We both have 722K receivers. Most every evening his receiver spontaneous changes channels and opens the guide, scrolls, etc. It always happens between 9 and 10pm. We thought it might my remote affecting his receiver, we did a test with negative results, so it does not appear we are interfering with the neighbor. We live in a highly electronic usage area (Hospital, EMT's, Police and Fire). My receiver works normally, no weirdness.
My other neighbor thinks the place is haunted....so we already been there. :lol:
Any fixes, ideas or opinions would be great.
Thank you and
Best of luck

Nope, the procedure is listed in scooper's link. Might have to try a couple different channels to find one not being used.
