To make a long story short, I got AT&T U-Verse recently and the DVR was connected to my Samsung LN46A850 via component when the guy came out and hooked it all up. After a couple of days, I dug out a spare HDMI cable I had and swapped out the component cable for this. It wasn't too long after this I noticed that the DVR remote was only working intermittently and if I wanted it to work every time, I had to get within about 5 inches of the receiver. My first thought was the batteries, but in the end, I found the problem to appear to be the HDMI port I was using on my TV. When I plugged it into another, everything went back to working fine. The port I was using is the one I've always had my Xbox 360 hooked up to and never had a problem. Needless to say, I'm leaving the DVR hooked up in this 'new' port, but I'm just wondering if anyone here has ever heard or seen anything like this? No other problems were present with the new TV service...just the remote issue.
