-- Problems with IR Controller in my DirecTivo (http://archive.tivocommunity.com/tivo-vb/showthread.php?threadid=182098)

The usual cause of this problem is interference from another remote ("stuck under the couch" is a popular choice) or from compact flourescent lamps, many of which will interfere with IR remotes.

I doubt that it is a hardware problem. Can you shield the IR sensor from other light in the room and see if the remote works well with it?

Another thing to try is power-cycling the TiVo (though if you called DirecTV, that's the standard thing they tell you to try no matter WHAT the symptom is.)
