    Hi all-

    has anyone else experienced this one? While using the DOWN arrows on my HDVR2 remote, the IR signal is often "confused" with one for my Zenith TV. So, my tv will switch to SOURCE mode or change channels from 3 to 2. This happens 1 out of lets say 25 presses on the button. Anyone know a solution for this?
    thanks

    It's a well known problem with Zenith tv's, change the remote address of your tivo.

    Thanks for the information! I had been contemplating getting a different TV because of this...Before I go digging through the manual, is this something thats fairly easy to do through the setup screens?
    Thanks again!

    1. MENU> MESSAGES & SETUP> SYSTEM INFO

    2. scroll down to REMOTE ADDRESS

    3. point the remote away from the receiver, press and hold PAUSE & TIVO(or DIRECTV key) until the red light remains on

    4. press one of the #'s on the remote between 1-9( or if a Sony 1-3), that changes the remote to a new address.

    5. now point the remote towards the receiver, press the right directional button, this changes the receiver.

    Never leave one tivo on any part of the INFO screen, when using remote for another, it will change to that remotes address.

    Apache...
    Does this work on the blue DirecTV universal remote? Mine doesn't have a
    tivo button or a red lite, other than the deevice selection buttons, such as TV, SAT, VCR, and AUX. Is there a button that means TIVO but is labeled differently?

    Sorry, but no, the blue remote from DTV only has the default address "0", which is what causing the conflict with the zenith. You'll need a true peanut remote to change addesses.

    Would a moderator please put this thread permanently at the top or at least near to it. Maybe add "erroneous remote signals" to the title if it can be done. I too experienced TV input and channel changes while attempting to 'scroll' down lists. Even after changing the code once thanks to the information on this post after rapid pressing of the down arrow I'd change the channel; I had to change it again to clear up all problems and now it works wonderfully.

    I say Thank You to this forum!

    Anything special about the new Pioneer DVR-810H? Still any # 1-9?

    Edmund,

    Many thanks for pointing me to this thread. I shall try the advice after work tonight. Too bad the tech people at Samsung don't seem to know any of this!!! They might be able to help users instead of just saying "too bad, it's just a glitch!"

    Oh oh, I may not have solved the problem after all. I reread the instructions you offered for reprogramming the remote address, also another post about DirectTV tivo (which is what I have) and realised there is no TIVO button on my remote (only the blue DirectTV button that takes you into the menu system). Any work arounds to this?

    Thanks!

    Tivo button is the same as the Directv button, you do have the peanut shaped remote?
