Hi All - I’m having an issue with my Playbar & TV remote. The TV remote worked when I first set up the Playbar. Then it stopped working in an odd way - the TV shows that it’s registering the volume button on the remote being pressed, but the actual volume coming out of the Playbar doesn’t change. I disconnected & reconnected the playbar from the TV and the TV remote started working again. Fast forward to the next day, it’s back to not working. Any possible solutions other than disconnecting and reconnecting every time?

I've had trouble with plasma TV's interfering with IR control of various devices, not just PLAYBAR. The level of interference depended on the picture being displayed and there was usually less interference immediately after the TV was started. "Eyelid" can be effective, but ugly. Another approach is to use a piece of black tape and experiment with the size of a hole in the tape to pass the IR. You'll need to tinker with the size of the hole because this obviously decreases the amount of IR that the sensor receives. One must make a compromise between sensitivity and interference reduction. Rather than a single piece of tape, one can use two pieces and adjust the size of the open area between the tape segments.
