Question about Sharp Aquos LC-42D62U 42 in. LCD HDTV
I have a scientific atlanta explorer 8300hdc set top box that comes standard with the universal electronics remote control 1056b01. the set top box will not respond to the remote control. the box is good because i can select guide and change channels. please help. OK, I thought I was losing my mind until I read this. I hooked up my SA Explorer 8300HDC and could not get the remote to work when the TV was on. Come to find out it doesn't have to do with power to the TV, but the screen, when the screen is on, the remote will not function on the cable box. I also found that turned the cable box to angle away from the TV, while the TV is on will allow the remote to work. There must be some type of interference between the LCD screen being on and the remote. Please help.
My remote wasn't working until I programmed it to work with itself ... (how odd it wasn't done already).
"CBL" button and ""OK/SEL" held down simulataneously for 3 seconds ... then "001" for the Scientific Atlanta. If the unit turns off, you're in business.

The piece of electrical tape over the cable box worked - genius!!! (I have the 46" aquos from 2007, and the SA 8300HD). Thanks again

My DISH DVR unit has a UHF antenna to work with the 2nd TV in another room. When I asked DISH tech support if this could be used to also support the remote of the primary tv (the LCD), they said they have a UHF kit for $19. I bought the kit, and now both my remotes (TV1 and TV2) are UHF and work perfectly.

The best thing to do is to move the receivers or TVs to a location that separates them with a greater distance.
