Question about Audio Players & Recorders
I have my home theater system setup with a 880 Harmony Universal Remote. For about three weeks now when I turn on to watch tv I have to most of the time go to the help feature on the remote to get my receiver to come on. When I'm done watching tv and I tune off my system I have to go to the help feature to turn off the receiver but sometimes it won't turn off remotely. This doesn't happen all the time but this happens very often enough to know that something isn't right. Also while viewing a program, sometimes the volume and the mute won't work. Sometimes it does sometime it doesn't. I turn on the system everything works fine and then after turn off system for a while and I come back and turn it on this happens.
Wondering could this be in my receiver or the remote. I've reprogrammed the remote twice but it still acts up. I've talk with a tech at FIREDOG at my local Circuit City Store and at the Home Theater Store that programmed the remote and they are telling me perhaps it could be in the receiver being it's not doing it everytime and that it's nothing wrong the the remote.
Your help would be appreciated on this matter.
I would agree that the receiver is at fault. The signal receiver for the remote is faulting and a good tech should replace it at minimal cost.

Try cleaning the little window where the
IR detector is on the receiver, and clean
the transmitter led on the remote also
If that does't work then it may
be a defective IR circuut problem
IR led or resistor or possibly IC
