    I don't know if anyone else has had this problem, but ever since I bought a LCD TV (Samsung LE32R41BDX) my Pace NTL box keeps changing channel/going into the EPG etc. on it's own. I called out an NTL engineer and he told my missus that the TV was causing the problem, and to try moving the box back a bit. He said that he had seen quite a few cases like this. Does anyone know how my TV could effect the box in this manner? It's not the remote controls, because it does it when I'm not using them.

    If the NTL cable is connected by scart lead try putting it in the other scart socket on the TV.

    Its IR interference from the LCD backlight. Try hiding the box from the TV, or adjusting the backlight
