Try the command code switch. I recently had a similar problem when my remote suddenly stopped working. It worked fine one time but nothing the next time I tried it.
I checked the emitter with a digital camera and found it was not working. I did the remote reset (remove batteries and push all the buttons twice, reinsert batteries) and the emitter was now working. However, the remote would still not control the base unit. I did the remote base code reset (push power, volume and TV/DVD buttons together) but this did not help. I then checked the command code switch. This is a small three position slide switch located in the battery compartment on the remote. I slid the switch back and forth several times returning to the default number one setting where it was before. I did not change anything on the base unit but the remote now worked.
Hope this helps.

The receiver more than likely received a software update or reset itself and reset the codes to the receiver and tv. We will need to set the remote address again and run a power scan to control the tv. Using the front panel buttons on the receiver press the menu button twice. This will put you at the system info screen. You will see the remote addresses for tv 1 and 2. They will probably both be set to 1 if the receiver reset. Press and hold the SAT button on the TV1 remote until all lights across the top light up and release. Now key in a two digit number between 1 and 16 (for 1-9 precede that numeric with a zero) now press the pound key at the bottom right of the remote numeric keypad. The SAT button will flash three times and press the record button until the remote address on the screen displays the one you entered. The receiver should now be able to be controlled by the remote. Now we need to do a power scan - press and hold the upper left TV button until all buttons across the top light up and release. Press the red TV button and release, The TV button should be lit constantly. Now press the channel up button slowly until the TV turns off. Once it does press the channel down once and then cannel up to see if the TV turns back on. If it does press the pound sign. Now press the record button and you are back in business. If you have further issues let me know. Thanks for using Fix Ya.
