Receiver changing channels on it's own every 20 minutes

HR44 0x11b2 changes the channel every 20 minutes during certain periods of the day. Only on the TV attached to the HR44.

Have reset the Genie 2 times and problem continues.  Almost always changes to channel 5, but once went to a 500 level channel that requires a subscription.  Have verified that the remote(IR) was removed from the room to verify that it was not the problem. Nothing set to record anywhere when channel changes

solved the problem.  Somewhere is settings is a HDMI Control option/setting. I turned it off and the problem stopped happening.
