I have been hearing IR problems ever since I got on the Forums.
DirecTV has so much problems with IR interference I would think they would put a better filter in the front of the box to filter is out.
You never hear of the TV volume, etc. or my Yamaha, etc. having a problem responding, it seems to always be the receiver for DirecTV.
I had turned it off this morning after I posted and I just turned the system on again. Works instantly now as soon as there is a picture on the TV so that you can see what it did.
Edit / Add: 3 times in a row with instant response to the remote on a cold fresh start up. I am certain that the 2" wide shield of cardboard over the front of the receiver is doing the job of blocking the IR that is coming from the TV and thru the glass surface between the TV and the DirecTV receiver..
