I recently switched over to FIOS and an having issues with my remote control. I have a QIP 7200 series HD DVR. I have an HDMI cable coming out of the box and connected to my JVC receiver. I have a HDMI cable coming out of the receiver and it is connected to my Panasonic Plasma HDTV. I use a Harmony 659 remote. This is the exact set up I had with my old Cablevision HD box pre-switch. Anyway, when I use the remote after flipping channels a couple of times, the box will just stop responding. Then a couple of minutes later, everything is normal. Then the cycle repeats itself. I tried just using the FIOS supplied remote and the same thing happens. Then I tried connecting my other 6200 series box (which i have connected to a different TV and also uses a Harmony 659 remote with no issues) into this setup and the same thing happens.
Is ti the recevier, the remote, the wiring? Any ideas or help will be most appreciated.
Solved! Go to Solution.
It's possibly an HDMI handshake issue. If you plug the STB directly into your TV does the problem still occur? This would tell if it is the receiver or the TV. You could also try using component cables to eliminate the problem.
Other forums have reported many issues with various HDMI setups and the Moto boxes. Don't take these as solutions (band aids at best) and ultimately the issues with HDMI need to be resolved if they are the problem.
