My Genie remote keeps turning on my AV equipment and it isn't even paired.
This issue just recently started up after using the same equipment (DirecTv receiver & Vizio TV) as well as the Genie remote for several years with no problems. However, now any button I push on the Genie remote (with exception of the Volume button) turns on my Sony AV Receiver. Let me be very clear that I don't want the Genie remote to control anything but the DirecTv and the TV.
So I followed the steps to re-program the Genie remote and then I paired it with my TV only...I did not pair it with anything else, yet nearly every button turns on my Sony AV equipment. It doesn't matter if its set on IR or RF, the remote somehow still controls the AV equipment. So I had another Genie remote from another room. I re-program that Genie remote to work with the main DirecTv receiver, then paired it to the Vizio TV and that's all. This remote does the same thing as the other one - any button I push other than Volume turns on my AV receiver. I'm not sure why this started happening all of the sudden, but I certainly would like it to stop so I don't have to unplug my AV receiver whenever it isn't in use.
