I have a question:

I currently have a 5.3 IR remote for TV1 and a 6.3 UHF remote for TV 2. Lately, the 5.3 IR remote for TV1 has been acting up (I have to go right up to the receiver to get it to flip channels). After about 20 mins of turning on the receiver, the IR 5.3 remote starts working normally (where I do not have to go right up to the receiver).

Could this be a IR remote address problem?

I was thinking about calling up Dish and asking them to swap out the IR remote with another UHF remote (since my UHF remote is working fine). Does Dish do free remote replacements even if you own the receiver?

Has anyone else experienced this problem?
