I have 2 remotes and the box will not respond to either if them. They were working fine, and all of a sudden quit. I have tried cleaning the sensor , disconnecting the tivo, and switching all the remote batteries.

The first thing you should do is unplug the tv from the electrical outlet for 2-3 minutes, then plug it back in. Hopefully it will "recycle". If that fails, check the connections and settings on your TiVo/cable box. Chances are that the remote is fine, but the tv is simply not responding to the infra red signal. As for it turning off by itself, get out the original tv remote, go to menu, then try to search out a place where there is a timer setting. Could be that it got activated accidentally. You also may want to try the "recycle" thing on the cable box itself. Good luck!
Check the remote control for its infrared emission. Check it with fresh batteries. If you wish to get more details about how to check a remote control, please visit this site. One among the posts has details about it. Surf the site with patience. http://electronicshelponline.blogspot.com/
If remote control is working OK, check and replace the remote sensor inside the TV. Contact any service technician.
Oh boy. here is the problem. i have also a 106240 IR/UHF receiver/transmitter that changes the channels in the satellite box from another room so i can watch them in a second tv at channel 4. the original remote for the 106240 is broken and i bought another UHF remote #153638. So i need to program the new remote to work and link with the 106240 receiver, NOT the satellite box or the tv. Is there any expert here to enlighten us how can be done ? Very simple question :how to program the remote 153638 to link with the 106240. Thank you in advance
There are different codes depending on whether the Tivo was set to respond as a specific device (1 or 2) on the remote or by standard default (device 0). Also, typically each universal remote has its own code for each device, which is specific to the remote, not the device you wish to control. For the $20.00, it might not be a bad thing to simply buy a new universal remote that is capable of controlling a PVR (There are many good ones out there).
Sense you do not know the make of the receiver I would do a code search. This is how you do it.
With automatic programming, the remote control tests all the codes available
on the Code List and assigns the correct code for the selected device.
Although this method can be more time-consuming, it eliminates the need to
look up codes and enter them manually.
1. T urn off the device with which you want to use the remote control.
2. Press and hold the corresponding button on the remote control
(TV, VCR, SAT, DVD, CAB or AUD) until POWER INDICATOR illuminates. The
remote control is in programming mode.
3. Press and release . The POWER INDICATOR flashes once and stays on
indicating the unit is in Power Scan mode.
4. Press CHANNEL + or CHANNEL - repeatedly until the device turns on.
5. When the device turns on, press OK to store the code.
• To exit without storing the code, press BACK.
• The unit will search for the next code or the previous code if you press
CHANNEL + or CHANNEL - after the device turns on.
6. Press any other button. If the device responds, the remote control has been
programmed. If the device does not respond, repeat steps 2-5.
Set up your infrared blasters connected from your IR port on the Tivo and by placing the two lead lights in front of your cable box so it (the cable box) can read the signal. Then go to Channel settings accessed through Tivo Central and follow the questions. It will ask you to change channels until the remote is working correctly. This all worked on a different "input" on my Mitsubishi TV (it has multiple inputs. I have the cable input on a different "input" to make it work.
Hope this helps. Call TIVO tech assistance because they are the ones who talked me through this.
