I am having an intermittent problem changing channels. Sometimes the channel change works fine (using the remote) other times not. I can't pinpoint a pattern - just some days it works fine then other days it doesn't. I don't move the Tivo or digibox nor change the config - so it's a bit mysterious.
Okay - it's annoying when I am physically changing the channel - but of course when I have set something up to record while I am away - and it records something else completely different (usually a "in order to subscribe to this channel" screen).
This is usually a 'stray IR' problem from another device. Check that any other remotes you might have to see if there's a problem. Maybe a button got stuck down or the cat's sat on it? (That has happened, if I recall correctly )
The positioning of the little IR wand thing can be very fiddly with some STBs. When I had Sky I got bored trying to find a position that worked satisfactorily, so got a little device that plugged into a socket on the back of the Sky box to change channels instead of using the wands - that worked fine.
My Freeview boxes, however, have all worked fine.

I'm not using any of the wands. I have tried it without for a few years and never had problems so... What I really don't understand is that if it is this - then why for days it works fine without these wands - and then for a crazy x minutes it doesn't.....
Have you moved the room around recently, re-arranged the equipment, put a plant in anything daft like that.
The IR Blaster relies on bounced signals coming back at the digibox, hell it could even be something daft like you've moved a chair or sofa and the signals work best when you sat in front of the kit :-)
I'm having exactly the same problem. Changed my Sky box today (no change), and I'm using the Pacelink (thingy in the back of the Sky box). Front IR blaster definately off. Thing is, I get the odd digit sent, sometimes it's ok, then all of a sudden, nothing.
I've tried power cycles, and sometimes that works and other times not. Getting boring now......and just before the Xmas TV rush too..
