Other than poltergeists, it is difficult for me work out why my portable remote control TV is turning itself on intermittently....
Does anybody have any rational explanation for this new occurrence.
I am sure it is not the nearby TETRA mast!

I had a problem once with a CD player where the batteries in the remote were low which caused the remote to transmit codes all the time that stopped the CD player working properly, even with manual finger poking. New batteries and problem was solved! This was the action recommended by the shop that sold the player. Maybe your problem is related. Try taking the batteries out of your remote for a while and see if it makes any difference.

Or there a neighbour has a remote that operates on a similar signal, hence you can work each others TV's!

This could be a total red-herring, but I found that a low energy light bulb interfered with my infrared remote CD player.

Well, its not the batteries in the remote. Curiously it may well be related to daylight wavelength light being on in the room, but can happen many minutes after it has been turned on rather than immediately.

Sometimes my TV inexplicably veers between old fashioned analog channels and freeview, then back again.
Personally I blame Linda Barker
