All was fine with old TV. Just got a new one and cannot get digital box to respond to Shaw remote despite working through problem solving suggestions on this website. Stuck on channel 3- cannot view guide, change channel, volume etc Hellp!!
Check your new TV for a light-sensor setting, ambient light sensor, or something similar, that dims and brightens the TV brightness to 'match' the room conditions.
This works using IR which interferes with the remote's IR.
Hopefully you have been able to get this working!
As kevinds mentioned, make sure there is an indicator light flashing at least when you press any of the buttons, if this is so, and you have power cycled the box,.
Check out this thread for a similar sounding issue it may help you out: Re: Why does my 3400 PVR take more than 3 minutes to become functional every time I turn it on?.
Let me know how it goes and perhaps include Brand/Model of your TV and whether you are using the IR Tether in your reply to us?
