    These may be unrelated and just symptoms of different issues. But since we enabled parental controls, we seem to lose the remote code that controls the TV functions. This is a Samsung TV and the first code was the one that have been working for the last 4+ months. We have tried others and even when going back to the original, everything works well for a couple of hours and then it stops working.

    Our last resort would be to remove parental controls, but that kind of defeats the purpose.

    Try replacing the batteries, I found that when the batteries start getting low commands to the tv start to fail.

    The remote sends a signal to the TiVo for every remote command entered, even when you send a tv on or volume command. When the batteries get low the remote sends a command first to the TiVo then attempts to send a command to the tv but doesn't have enough reserve power to send the tv command.

    I found that when the battery gets down to 30% or less I have problems controlling the tv.

    Thank you. That seems to have solved the problem
