Remote Functionality Problems

OK, so what's the deal? I have a couple Direct TV receivers and just bought a new Sony flat panel to go with the other Sony flat panel. After 2 weeks the sensor on the new Sony TV stopped working. No, it isn't the remote, since the old Sony remote doesn't work with the new TV and the new TV remote works the old Sony...batts are good. So a day later the DTV remote sensor stops working and none of the other 3 DTV remotes work with it either. Tonight I lost the other DTV receiver sensor, so now that's TWO receivers and a TV that have no I-R functionality. All this happened within the past week.

When on park power I keep my modified sine wave inverters turned on, so that any park outages will keep my power going.

Does any of this make sense? Could the inverters be the cause of this issue? No fluorescent lights on in the area either. One remote operates on I-R and the other is on RF.

That really is strange. I also leave my inverter on like you, but mostly so that when I use the generator the satellite receiver doesn't go on and off. The most logical reason would be IR interference. I assume you are trying the remotes directly with the TV and receiver and not thru the remote IR eye in the bedroom.
