I recently switched to RCN digital cable in the Boston, and the DVR cannot be controlled via the Remote (works for one or two button pushes, then nothing). RCN tech says that this is an issue with Motorola boxes and Panasonic TVs (I've got a Panny 50" industrial plasma 9 series). Anyone else heard of this?

Yes, some plasma TVs put out interference in the IR spectrum that tends to have weird interactions with IR remotes. I've heard putting a piece of sticky-note paper (yes, really) over the IR sensor on the neighboring equipment will actually block out the interference; might be worth a try...
