I watched a Disclosure (band name) concert via the youtube app on a Roku 3. A few minutes in and the concerts light show shuts my LG plasma off. The first time it happened i assumed it was a power issue or someone pressed a button on the remote...then it happened again a week later. I tested it a couple of times and each time the TV shuts off at the same point.

Anyone else experience something like this? The closest i have come is with some TVs i installed 10 years ago that i had to paint the IR receiver out because the sun would interfere with the IR commands.

If you have an LG plasma try it out. It happens somewhere between the 1 and 2 minute mark.

Iíve had plasma sets interfere with IR extenders. Typically, high brightness scenes would block IR commands. I donít recall observing any spurious commands, but I would not be shocked if this happened. Itís a variation on the ďAn infinite number of monkeys typing, would ...Ē

I would solve my issue by mounting the IR receiver in the shadows. You might have some success with a sun filter.

You guys crack me up.

The first thing to consider is letting your musical tastes mature.

As a matter of fact this is classic plasma behavior, and it settles down to nothing in a minute or so.

An issue of crucial importance about the infinite number of monkeys typing is that the example does not consider monkeys at all. It is a total hoax!

See, someone
has attempted to put the theory to the test. Admittedly the British academics involved in this unusual project did not have an infinite number of typewriters, nor monkeys, nor time, but they did have six Sulawesi crested macaque monkeys, and one computer, and four weeks for them to get creative.

The results of this trial at Paignton zoo in Devon were more Mothercare than Macbeth. The macaques - Elmo, Gum, Heather, Holly, Mistletoe and Rowan - produced just five pages of text between them, primarily filled with the letter S.

There were greater signs of creativity towards the end, with the letters A, J, L and M making fleeting appearances, but they wrote nothing even close to a word of human language.

"It was a hopeless failure in terms of science but that's not really the point," said Geoff Cox, of Plymouth University's MediaLab, who designed the test. So what were the academics trying to achieve? "It wasn't actually an experiment as such, it was more like a little performance," said Mr Cox.

The project - which was paid for with £2,000 of Arts Council money - was intended to emphasise differences between animals and machines, he went on. "The monkeys aren't reducible to a random process. They get bored and they shit on the keyboard rather than type." The computer was protected with a perspex box, with holes for the monkeys to poke fingers through to hit the keys.

Yes, sir, they get bored and they shit on the keyboard rather than type. And what did you think might be my comment?

I was about to suggest that he should be sure he's got a plasma-proof sensor when I realized that the TV turned off its own damn self! How do you cure that?

Cover the IR port and use IP control.
A good answer is easier with a clear question giving the make and model of everything.

Cover the IR port and use IP control.

If the Plasma set supports IP control and there is a control system on the project. If there is no control system, the IP controller App becomes another remote to juggle.

It's Mac's TV. Either he's got the bitchenest setup going, or it's a case of the cobbler's children having no shoes.

I think IP control and all these suggestions are great but probably overkill since it only happens when watching one YouTube video.

I heard a story once where a guy tells his doctor "my arm hurts when I do this with it". The doctor responds with "don't do that with your arm".

As we get deeper and deeper into voice control, we will have interesting dramas with unintended commands.

Technology can bite you in the @ss. My first iPhone...girlfriend sends me a nude photo...the image pops up on my phone while im sitting with a client explaining how to use a remote. That awesome new feature got turned off immediately. Or what about Nextel? How many of you worked with an idiot who would just start talking inappropriately while you are at a job site.

Oh, hell yes! We had the big rugged Motorolaís (the lovely yellow ones) and worked with a guy that had THE WORST trucker mouth Iíve ever experienced. Man, I forgot all about that period of life!
