722k changing channels on it's own

So, no takers on this topic yet? Here's some more info that might attract interest. Last night I changed all three remotes to frequency 15, being sure to select system info from the front of the receiver and not from the remote so as to not be resetting my ghost neighbor's receiver at the same time. I also did a system reset to reboot the receiver. I chose 15 to go from an even frequency band to an odd frequency band and to get as far away from the previous setting as practical. This morning the channels start changing themselves again. Now tell me, how in the world can I all of a sudden have three different neighbors driving my receiver with their remotes on three different frequencies? I just don't think this is the issue. Have remotes ever gone wacky and done this on their own or can my 722K have developed some kind of internal problem? Is there some other UHF device, police scanner or something like that in the neighborhood that could be affecting my system? One other consideration, for what it's worth, I have a coaxial cable extending my receivers remote antenna from the reciever's location near a corner of by basement's cement foundation wall running it up to the basement ceiling in the center of the house for better remote reception. I've used this set up for years so my bedroom remote would work. However, this location puts the remote antenna within 3 feet from my wi-fi router, which I can't see as being a problem but who knows.

I remembered one very important ingredient that I had totally left out of this equation and hopefully found my solution. I’ve been running my system in shared mode for a very long time. My TV2 remote was set at Frequency 14 and I just didn’t think to try changing that. I dug out my old TV2 remote and sure enough, it changes all the channels on TV1 as well while in shared mode, duh. So, my new mystery neighbor must be operating their remote at that setting. I switched that TV2 remote setting to address 5 and we’ll see what happens now. Hopefully this will fix my problem.
