Panasonic TV remote control

  Peter J 12:01 18 Apr 09

We have two Panasonic TV's, in separate rooms divided by a glass door.
However the remote control IR signal from one RC sometimes strays, and changes channel etc. on the other TV.
Is there a way to change the remote control frequency on one set, so that it does not interfere with the other one.
Thanks so much for any advice.

Dont think so but you should be able to shield the receptor on either or both sets bit fiddly I'm afraid

The remotes are interchangable so since they work by infra red and the sets may be physically fairly close, you need to stop IR signals bouncing off light walls and other reflecting surfaces.

One crude way would be to find out where the recepter is on the front of each set.
Partialy mask it with a taped-on card tube like a shortish piece of bog roll or something smaller and more elegant!
This would shield it from all but a directly pointed signal

Have the same problem, except that the stray signals operate my wife's stairlift!

Luckily there is a built in movement delay on it and the remote is rarely pressed for long enough to actually move it.
