    GigaBlue Quad+ remote control stopped working.

    Model - GigaBlue Quad Plus
    Chipset - BCM7356
    CPU - Mipsel 1.3Ghz Dual core
    Image - 5.0.032 (Release)

    I flashed to image 5.0.032 about a week or so ago. Everything was running smooth until 2 days ago my GigaBlue remote control just stopped working. The remote control seems to be working as i have pointed into a digital camera and can see the infra red beam on the camera when i press a button on the remote control. I didn't change any settings, or drop the remote control. I have changed the batteries on the remote. I have restored a backup image i created when the remote control was working but still the remote control will not work. The led on the front of the receiver does not blink when a button is pressed anymore.

    Has anybody else experienced this?

    Is there a way to 'reset' the remote control?

    thanks

    On mine there is a giga button which enables it as a controller for the receiver - have you something similar?

    Nothing is simple unless you have been there and solved it

    Har! Har! That button on the giga remote caught me out several times when I had it first. I haven't used the remote in about two years now, though. I bought a Harmony remote (model 300) and it has all the functions I need and is much better quality.

    I use a software app to control my setups, but when my in laws stay here I have to provide the remotes - unfortunately always a period of destructive learning
