This is just info for anyone having troubles with UHF remotes not working sometimes.

In the process of finding out why my UHF remote would not work sometimes, I discovered that it will not work if it is within about 2 ft of a wireless PC. This may depend on several variables, such as the router, the wireless card, the PC, etc. With my setup, if I move the remote 4 to 5 ft away from the wireless PC, all works fine.

My UHF would not work at all when my PS3 was turned on. The PS3 sat about 3 feet from the 722K that has the issue. I used a coax and moved the antenna up into the ceinig since it was in the basement where there was a drop ceiling. Moved it about 10 feet total and never have had another problem. Crazy part was there was absolutly no issue when the PS3 was off.

I had some UHF interferrence when I had my 722k from my xbox360. There are lots of electronics that can cause interferrence, but I haven't had any issues since I switched over to the Hopper.
