Series 2 stopped changing channels- not the IR blaster

I was able to test the IR blaster with a second Tivo (and tried its blaster on the first Tivo) and they work- just not with the first Tivo. I also rebooted and went through channel changing settings (auto and manual) without any change.
What else could cause this issue? How fixable is it?

I am having a similar problem with my series 2--remote control stopped responding a few minutes ago--I can only turn off the power, none of the other buttons work.

You don't say if you also switched STB's to see if the IR eye in it is bad, either do that or look at blaster thru digital camera while attempting to change channel on affected tivo. Then you will know for sure if the IR out is bad on tivo.

It's not the stb (a Dish Joey in this case) as I've been using the second Tivo with it since this started. Assuming the IR receiver is the red light to the right of the front buttons then they work.
I hooked Tivo #1 back up to test some things and it's back to working again- at least for now.
