how I have been having inexplicable problems with my DirecTivos the last two days, and I find this. I'm having a very strange remote problem. Suddenly, the last two days, none of my remotes control tivos properly(peanuts or one-for-all universal). New batteries don't help. Remotes, including universals work fine for other devices but they are extremely sluggish/nonreponsive for my tivos (series 1 and HD in same room). There's no IR interferences. This makes no sense. Suddenly both Tivos stopped taking signals properly at the exact same time. How is this possible? Anyone else having this problem??? I've tried everything, new TIVO codes, other remotes, new batteries, rebooting. Nothing helps. I'm totally clueless right now.
