 Hi All - Happy tobe here and I wish everyone a stressfree New Year But not started very well for me When using the Sky remote in the family room to move up or down a channel, or to scroll through the programme listings, it will sometimes just continue. e.g. If I am on channel 50 and press the button to change the channel up one to 51, it will just keep incrementing the channel number. The same with the programme listing. If I use the right arrow to see the next programme, it just keeps going until it reaches the last programme. I have tried two Sky remotes, both with new batteries, and they exhibit the same problem. But it is not all the time, just sometimes. I have even tried pressing the button once and then covering the sensor in case the button was sticking. The Sky volume control also has the same problem when used.

Whatever this interference is it is also affecting our DVD remote whichis just switching off on pressing any button.

Help please urgently required

Welcome to Geekzone... This sounds like light interference. Any source of light pointing to your devices?

Nothing obvious any suggestions as to what sort of light we are talking about

Does this still happen at night, when the lights are not on in the room? Thats the best way to rule out lighting issues.
Also, are any of the boxes behind a glass door?

Christmas lights may cause interference. Do you have them on - mine make my IR Headphones almost unlistenable with noise until I turn them off. - Never had an issue with remotes tho.


Oh, and welcome too.
