I was lead instructor and the Navy's point man for Electromagnetic Compatibility and everything in my mind is screaming THIS CAN'T HAPPEN! But it did.
We changed out the remotes, the satellite receiver, and then put in a whole new system. Dish technicians, engineers and I were all pulling our hair out. And the culprit was - in fact - the Blu-ray player above it. We relocated the satellite remote antenna with a makeshift extension cable and all is fine.
Just goes to show that electronics is NOT an exact science: trons are going to do what trons are going to do.
Hope everyone's Labor Day weekend is going swell!
Ha! Been there done that too. Even though our satellite remote was set to UHF, the actual receiver apparently would still accept IR signals. Shouldn't work like that! Did you cover up the "eye"? Maddening, right?
If everything seems to be going well, you have obviously overlooked something.
Give a person a fish and you feed them for a day. Teach a person to use the Internet and they won't bother you for weeks, months, maybe years.
