A couple details on my setup first...
I have one of these fancy Harmony remotes that I love. I'm using a Leapfrog IR extender to get into the cabinet I have the HR-20 installed in.
So here's the issue... I've noticed that when I set the Harmony to leave the HR-20 on at all time, I OFTEN power everything else up and the HR-20 appears to be locked up, It does not respond to IR. I try using the Harmony, even the original remote and nothing. However if I use the buttons on the front of the unit it's not actually locked up.
So what the heck is this? The box appears to still be up but totally unresponsive to my remote(s). Red button reset fixes the problem. This only seems to happen when the unit is left on over night. I thought this was a possible HDMI issue but I disconnected HDMI last week and I'm now using component. I tried opening the door of the cabinet to bypass using the Leapfrog to get the IR into the cabinet, but the unit doesn't seem to accept IR from the sensor on the front of it either.
I'm trying not to jump on the bandwagon and blame the HR-20 but I'm having a hard time nailing it down. Anyone else have a this problem or a similar problem?
Last week, I had the Harmony setup to shut off everything (when the off button was pressed) and I seemed to have less or none of these. I've heard many on here that leave this thing on all the time... How can that be?
