The first issue was the remote would stop working all together. I would have to unplug the unit for about five minutes to get it to work again.
Now my receiver has also stopped responding to the remote when I watch DVD's. For example, no matter when I press the main menu button it says "you can't perform this function at this time." Also whenever I press the FF/RW/Stop/Pause buttons when I resume play it takes me to one of the bonus features and won't let me go back to the movie or main menu. I have to turn the receiver off, start over, and use the scene selection option to restart the movie. This is very frustrating to say the least. Any ideas on why this is happening and/or how to stop it would be greatly appreciated.
