I broke this out of the at the movies forum because it really is off topic.

I had a pairing issue that occurred after the last firmware update.

I replaced the batteries, then went into the accessories, BD Remote, and I relearned the remote. You must activate the pairing mode in the PS3 the hold the enter and PS button. I had to do this for much longer than in the past. It took me well over a minute. But it did learn my remote again.
ok thanks....it has new batteries but maybe
i didn't hold the buttons down long enough..
no...i went to the playstation forums & see where this is
a hit or miss issue with some boxes....i have held the 2 buttons
down for up to 5 mins right next to it & nothing....so if the next
firmware doesn't fix it i will get one of the 3rd party ir remotes
for it.....thanks
Did you try turning the PS3 off & on then trying to pair the remote ?
yes, unplugged it for several minutes...off & on a bunch...
formatted & restored to factory settings...the whole
9 yards & nothing....thats ok...the game controller works
well enough until there is a fix or i get a different one..
Sorry I couldn't be of help.

Perhaps if you contact Sony, maybe they'll send you a new remote to try.
no problem....i don't think there is any help
until sony fixes the software...others have bought
new remotes & get the same results....so it is
something messed up in the box.....or my remote
has died....
