Re: Remote does not seem to be communicating with TV.
I presume you have replaced the batteries in the remote control and had it checked to confirm it is working if so the most likely cause of faliure to come out of stand by is a currupted eprom (memory chip) within the TV and will require a technician to replace or reprogram
a 6ya Technician can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

Recently first thing in the morning I've found my tv power on / standby LED is flashing red and blue. The tv does not seem to respond to the remote...but after pressing remote on key the tv will eventually come on about 3 to 5 minutes afterwards. It would seem that the tv does an auto update during the early hours and then on next switch on it completes the update...during which time it seems that it has not turned on. To prevent this annoying behaviour you can disable the automatic software updates in the settings menu... see pdf user manual at https//estadoc.hitachi.eu/servlet/FileViewer?DocumentName=22%20IB.pdf see page 23 about software upgrade. In the settings options you can disable the auto upgrade. Occasoinally I expect it would be advisable to either enable the auto update for a day or two or do manual update.
Is this a newly installed system? If both tv's are responding to the same remote setting (red in case), it means both tv's are set to the same channel. The tv that is connected to the decoder directly (via AV cables, I presume) is supposed to respond to if the remote is set to red. In order for the second tv to respond when the remote is set to blue, you need to tune the second tv until you find the picture of tv2 (the decoder transmits both tv1 and tv2 on the RF/coaxial output and it seems that your remote tv is tuned to tv1 instead of tv2).
Even though your TV s remote control emits infrared light, it might have not sufficiant frequency as it supposed to be. The fault with its resonator crystal inside the circuit board need replacement. It will look like this. Replace it with exact frequency marked on it.
If new batteries did not fix the problem, then it means the problem is either from the remote or the TV.
Remote: Check the remote battery terminal, see if its not rust. Also, disassemble the remote, can check the connection between the terminal and the remote board, see if there is no disconnection of any kind.
If after checking and all seems well, then it means the remote is defective. To confirm, borrow a remote, test it with the TV. If it works, then it means you need to replace your remote. But if the remote you borrowed does not work, then it means the problem is from the TV and not the remote.
TV: There is a sensor in the TV that communicates with the remote. If this sensor is defective, the remote won't communicate with the TV.
The TV sensor might have loosed contact from inside of the TV or it maybe defective and need to be replaced.
So do the above troubleshooting and let me know if the problem is from the TV or remote. If problem is from the remote, you need to do a replacement. But if otherwise, let me knows as well.
