    This happened sometime over the weekend. When in any screen where scrolling is possible, a single press of the down button will scroll to the very bottom of the screen. Up acts the same way During this time, the yellow "remote activity" LED stays on solid. I have rebooted, remocved the power for 10 minutes and still the same. Box is 2 years old. Only "mod" is a 1TB HD installed 2 years ago

    Tivo HD with cable card

    Thanks for any suggestions

    Is the remote down button getting stuck on?

    Have you tried putting your hand in front of the remote after pressing down?

    Remove the batteries from the remote see if the Yellow activity led goes out.
    You may have another device sending commands anything new in the room or did you change any light bulbs some mercury and florescent lights can interfere with remotes

    Yes, I have covered the end of the remote.

    Nothing but regular light bulbs in the room

    The yellow LED goes out after 5 seconds

    Fixed!!

    The kids had crap piled on top of the TV and BluRay remotes. One of them has been transmitting since Saturday

    Thanks for the replies
