Our remote just very recently starting to act up...

The Channel Up/Down button doesn't work any more!

I have reset and re-program the darn thing (what a pain it was!), but that didn't fix the problem...

Any suggestion would be greatly appreciated!

New batteries?

DO you have young kids that like to chew on the remote?

I had a similar prob with my remote and it was a signal sender I had next to the TIVO box that made the remote work in the bedroom. If you have one of those(signal sender) unplug it and see if that fixes it. Or any other sort of infra red device.

Here's a quick update...

Someone at home played with the channel listings setting on the remote... That screwed up the up/down button...
