Hi all,

I have something strange that happens with remotes that doesn't make sense to me. I have a Sony LCD TV and a Panasonic Front Projector. When the Sony TV is on, the remote for the Panny FP will not work. As soon as I turn the Sony TV off, all works fine with the Panny FP remote.

Anyone know why?

Thanks in advance.

Typically this sort of thing is caused by the TV emitting IR radiation that overwhelms the IR sensor in the projector.  See if you can shield the projector IR sensor from directly seeing the TV screen.  Sometimes people have success just covering the sensor with cloth or masking tape.
