I just used the following instructions from this site on my 'totally dead' Ilo remote and it worked like a charm! I did step 2 twice on each key and put the batteries back in and it worked great! Hope this helps you too. "Dead" Remotes Can Be Saved How to Re-Start Your "Dead" Remote Control This only takes about a minute and will restart 1 in 3 "Dead" Original Remote Controls. Good Luck! Step 1- Pull the batteries out of the remote and leave them out until Step 4. Step 2- Press and release each and every button one at a time on the remote control until every button has been pressed and released at least once! Step 3- If your remote has slide switches, you must move the switch to each position then repeat the button pushing in Step 2. (When you're done, be sure to put the slide switch in the correct position to operate the unit the remote came with!) Step 4- Put the batteries back into the remote, being very careful to install them correctly. New batteries should be used if you're not sure about the old ones. Step 5- Try the remote. If it works, Great! If not, it's time to call 1-800-Remotes or use this website to order a new remote.

SOURCE: TV CHANGES CHANNELS (BY ITSELF)
is this tv the same model/brand? far be it from me to claim poltergeists are at work, but who knows... the very first thing i would do in diagnosing this issue is to grab some electrical tape and aluminum foil, tape a patch over the ir receiver for the remote, this should be a shiny piece of black plastic somewhere on the front of the tv, some are marked, some are not.. if you have it, aluminum duct tape works great for this purpose.
to me, it seems like someone is messing with you using a remote, tv-b-gone, or similar product like a keychain universal remote.. if the tape over the ir sensor fixes the issue, i would look at roommates, kids, neighbors, or possible interference from other ir or light sources..
possible culprits would be:
dirty remotes that keep sending a signal with nobody using it
laptops or cellphones with an irda port
palm devices such as palm, clie, etc that have irda
intermittent strobes (emergency vehicles, bad ballast in a light fixture, etc)
i can't guarantee this is your problem, but it seems like it since this is your second tv with the same or similar problem... as a sidenote, the sony clie came with a universal remote program, i caused much chaos in my local video stores by shutting down their video wall while browsing.

I assume the control panel on the tv still works correctly?
If so i would think you have a remote problem.
If thats the case let me know I will send you a link to instructions to repair your remote.
