Sounds weird.



TiVo remote works to turn tv on and off, and tv volume.



Worked fine till half an hour ago



Now, it won't work on TiVo at all. So I turned off the tv and noticed when I pushed buttons the light on the TiVo lit up. So I turned on tv and could see the channel changed, or guide opened.



Then it doesn't work again when the tv is on.



Did a power cycle, still the same. No lights on TiVo when I push buttons, but it still works on tv.



Any ideas?



Cheers

3. Do you have a plasma or LCD TV?

Yes: Go to Possible Causes
No: Please contact TiVo Customer Support for assistance.
Possible Causes

Plasma TVs placed too close to the IR Receiver of the DVR can cause issues which prevent the IR commands from being properly received by the DVR. Move the DVR away from the TV and try again.

Certain LCD TV backlights can cause IR interference which prevents IR commands from reaching the DVR. Some televisions have features or settings that modify the backlight levels and can create IR interference. Examples include: Energy Saving settings or auto dimming features which adjusts the backlight settings based on ambient light. Check your TV settings to see if any of these settings are active. If so, disable it or try modifying the backlight setting manually to a higher or lower level until the DVR is able to respond.

Crazy!

Haven't tried if it works yet, but that sucks big time
