I pick up a 46" Sharp LC46D64U LCD and when the TV is on my MCE receiver is not working well and constantly flashing from IR being generated from the TV. I am confused why this is happening I know plasma TVs will make this happen but this is an LCD. What can I do?

I too suffer from this exact same issue. The interference with the IR receivers I got with the standard MCE remote running on Windows XP Media Center Edition 2005 RU2 is definitely coming from the TV (goes away when TV is turned off, resumes when TV is turned on).

Does anyone out there know what capability of the LC46D64U causes the infrared interference and if it is possible to turn it off? Many thanks in advance - Joe

I've owned a Sharp 32-inch LCD for about two years now. It plays havoc with my D* H-20 receiver, so I simply covered the IR sensor on the D* receiver with a small cloth used for wiping eyeglasses. Problem solved.

Thanks for the reply Maccur, but I do need the IR receiver to work as it is the control mechanism for a media center PC.

I have seen a few posts related to the Aquos OPC and / or backlight being the culprit. Given mine does not have backlight I will try to turn off the OPC capability and see if it fixes the problem this evening. Will update tomorrow if all goes according to plan.

I should have clarified that covering the IR sensor on my D* receiver doesn't affect the remote control commands at all. It functions perfectly.
