Used to have a TV like that...
Believe it had to do with someone's burglar alarm system that triggered a sensitive remote. Remember when the old auto speed radar detectors could be activated by a remote garage door opener, burglar alarm systems, or microwave ovens.
Also, when I bought my Dish Network Satellite TV system some years ago, there are two types of remotes..forget the names ..like infra red & ?, but one you point at the receiver and one you don't have to. Anyway, they caution that you can activate a neighbors satellite system with one of the remotes under certain conditions.
Read some years back that there is/was a worm or spyware with telephone dialup that can trigger your computer to turn on and the hard drive/system can then be used to do work for others. You might post in the Virus and Security Alerts forum to see what the experts there have to say.
