Advertisements As the title said, the remote on one of my DirecTivo's (Philips) doesn't work between the hours of 8-10pm. This is a rough estimate of the times, I haven't actually sat down and waited for it to stop and start working. About a month ago, I went to watch TV in bed and the remote didn't work. When I woke up, it worked again. Over the next few weeks I slowly worked out the times that it didn't work, and that rebooting fixed the problem, but only for a few days. I tried using one of the other remotes in the house and they didn't work either. Has anyone else seen this?
