V6 remote control intermittently unresponsive for minutes at a time
Got a V6 box in Tues this week and use the remote in paired mode (which took several attempts but eventually it paired), and it suffers from not working for a couple of minutes randomly then seems to spring back into life for anywhere between several minutes to several hours without fault. It is really frustrating as nothing should be interfering and when it works it's fine but when it doesn't it is the most frustrating thing to encounter! It seems that when it isn't working you still get the light on the remote acknowledging that a button has been pressed but the light on the V6 box doesn't flicker to register receipt of a command.
Haven't tried using in IR mode as that's not how I intend to use it and I don't want to have the pot luck approach to it pairing back up again. I have replaced the batteries in case they caused the problem but it made no difference.

Re: V6 remote control intermittently unresponsive for minutes at a time
The issue seems to be getting worse for me but I'm thinking it could be a wiring issue (or similar). I put in new batteries, just to be sure I'd covered all bases and noticed that if I pushed up against them the remote worked, popped the cover back on, remote stopped working, so trial an error finds that when the remote isn't working either pushing against the batteries or squeezing the remote at the sides of the keypad provides a temporary fix
