When changing channels on the front overhead TV the back bedroom TV changes channel

Hello!! I need your advice! I'm having issues when changing channels from my front overhead TV the rear bedroom TV also changes channel, real issue with wife! I think that the Infra Red sensor must not be working correctly has anyone else have this issue?? Do I need to change the sensor?? Thank You in advance. Grandcanyon!

You must have a really good remote control. It's sending such a strong infrared light beam that it's reflecting off something to the other TV. Maybe there's some glass that it's reflecting off. It may be reflecting off the face of the TV. Can you turn the TV to one side? Is there something in the bedroom that is giving a second reflection, that could be moved or covered? I've had remotes that would change the TV when pointed at a wall or the ceiling.

Maybe you could cover the IR emitter on the remote with some transparent tape to cut down on the amount of IR light it's emitting. Try several layers. Closing a door should stop the problem, if that's an option. You might try a universal replacement controller. It may have a weaker beam, or may be more focused.

PS I am assuming it's an infrared remote. Could it be a radio frequency remote like a garage door opener? If so, can you change the code for one TV/remote pair? If try the remote when covered up, or in a closed room ,and it changes the TV anyway, it's not an IR remote.

I have a somewhat similar problem, between my main mid-coach TV and the front TV. If I stand in between the two TV's, no problem.

I resorted to putting a small piece of paper to partially block the front tV sensor, so that a direct reflective shot from the mid TV doesn't change the front TV.

Is this a new system for you or one that has always worked fine?

What kind of TV signal are you using? Is it Off Air? Direct cable to TV? Cable box? Satellite receiver?

If you are using a cable or satellite receiver, that is hooked to both TV's, it is able to run 2 different channels? I know in my house I have a single receiver so all my TV's have to show the same thing.

Hello and thank you for your suggestions. The TV itself cannot be turned or moved since it's installed above the driver and passer seat, I have tried closing the bedroom door but this makes no difference, also this happens when I'm using my direct TV, I'm using two different satellite boxes one for the two TV's in the front of the coach and just one satellite box for the bedroom TV. I will keep on playing with it and see if I can get it corrected. again thanks for the help! Grandcanyon
