I have brand new batteries installed in the remote. When I press the SAT button the SAT, TV, and the AUX buttons flash off and on like 11 times.

Is there a fix for this?

This could mean that your "new" batteries aren't as new as you think. The remotes will exhibit all sorts of strange behavior when the batteries are low.

You might try removing the batteries for a few minutes and re-installing them.

What does that do that makes the remote controller work again by removing the batteries then reinstalling after this timeframe?
It gives the electronics a chance to drain any damaging voltages before it gets re-powered. Think of a quick swap kind of like a brown-out where the voltage drops to levels that makes the remote unstable enough to lose its mind.
