There has never been a good explanation of why this is happening. Fortunately, it doesn't happen that often, and restoring the desired configuration on the Darblet is simple and quick.
Jerry-Overall this is a minor thing, put it in the annoyance category. Logo pops up, I have to get the little plastic remote and dig thru the menus to re-set.
Some software bug is there, hopefully be raising visibility to Dr Darbee it will be fixed.

Hmm, I understand your thinking.
My Darblet is on top of my projector at the rear of the room, not pointing any IR at it.
When I need to tweak it I need to grap the little plastic remote and specifically point at it from my 2nd row seat.
It's a wonder there is not total chaos in the IR command set among all devices, obviously there is a master set of IR freq codes assigned to manuf. or what you say would be a huge issue in daily life.
For now, I'll just re-post in here when it randomly pops up as data gathering/reporting.
