Tivo box not responding, is interfering with TV remote

About 20 minutes ago the tivo box simply stopped accepting inputs from the remote, and likewise the TV stopped accepting inputs from its own, separate remote. The buttons on the box itself also stopped working, but after a reboot all seemed to be fine until we tried to start a recorded programme, then back to square one. The programme doesn't play and the current channel is still being displayed in the top right as if nothing is wrong.

 

We've never had the tivo remote linked to the TV for volume control etc. and I can only assume the box itself is malfunctioning and sending out odd signals that are disrupting the TV remote too.

 

Help!

 

 

Edit: All seems to be well for now... but any ideas as to why this happened in the first place are still welcome of course Smiley Happy

Re: Tivo box not responding, is interfering with TV remote

Do you have a camera on your phone? If so you can check the remote(s) is/are working by looking at them through it whilst pressing buttons. You will see the infra-red pulses if it is sending a signal. If you dont see anything try new batteries. If it still doesn't work a forum moderator will pick up on this post soon. Hope this helps ...B 

A re-boot wouldn't hurt either : )

Re: Tivo box not responding, is interfering with TV remote

Both remotes have new batteries and are definitely working, checked with my camera (nice tip!) and the problem has just come back again.

 

Rebooting doesn't seem to make a difference as the problem seems to be random. It first happened when trying to play a recorded programme and happened just now during a show when we tried to pause it. We left it for 20-something minutes and it started responding again.

Possibly a button stuck on one of the remotes, thus permanently sending a signal and blocking both remotes?

 

Nice to be able to post again, after their mistake (removed by the Censorship team).

If the box buttons dont work either it could well be the box has developed a fault. Watch your recordings if you can : (

Today so far so good. Maybe it was just a one off. Will keep an eye on it for a while.

 

Thanks for the help all.
