TiVo remote brings up TV Setup Menu

Does anyone else have a problem with Philips TVs and the TiVo remote? Every time I select Channel Up/Down on the TiVo remote the TV changes channel too. Also the OK button brings up the TV Setup menu, and the power button instantly turns the TV on/off (without the 5 seconds delay). This happens whether the TiVo remote has been paired with the TV to operate the volume/power or now.

It's very annoying, and the only way to stop it is to block up the receiver on the TV, which means I can't change volume, etc.

I'd love to know how I can fix this.

I fixed this on a LG TV by restoring it to factory settings

Re: TiVo remote brings up TV Setup Menu

Thanks jb66. Tried this but factory reset just seems to do picture and sound settings. Sadly I'm still getting random menus popping up on the TV when I hit TiVo remote buttons. Looks like a short term fix will be to tape up the TV receive sensor and send the wife up to change the volume :-)

Have you tried changing the batteries in the remote. Ive seen a customer who put in poundland batteries and it made the TV change to channel 7

Re: TiVo remote brings up TV Setup Menu

Ok, that's bizarre but at this stage I'm willing to try anything. Sadly no difference, and I can also confirm that the TiVo remote from my main box (from which I robbed the replacement batteries) downstairs also invokes exactly the same behavior in the TV.
