You would think it would be consistant if it were the tv, wouldn't you?
No, it appears some TVs create interference as they are warming up; some create it when an automatic brightness control is active. Other CCF bulbs can create the problem. But basically there is another direct or reflected source of IR in the room that is being picked up by the box and confusing it.
Try changing the backlight or brightness settings on the TV and turn off the Advanced C.E. setting if it is on.
Try putting a few layers of masking tape over the remote sensor on the box to make it less sensitive. Change the location of the box a bit.
