Satellite Pro + Remote Issue

I recently bought a Satellite Pro Plus and I think I may have a glitchy remote control. We set it up on the tank, followed the directions to set the clock, and the on/off times. It came on, and did ramp down the lights at the set off time. But after that, at random moments, the light setting would change and the unit would go out of timer mode. We could set it back in timer mode with the resume button, but a few minutes later, it would change again. First thought was something was sending random IR signals, but we couldn't find anything else that might be the culprit. We now think it may be the remote itself. If we set the on/off times and put the remote in a drawer where it can't see the controller, everything works perfectly. Is this remote just glitchy or are we missing something else?

Possibly. My remote sucks. I have to hold it a certain way and push several times to get it to (randomly) work or not. I could see the opposite happening with yours if something isn't quite right. Keep meaning to call again and try to get a replacement.

Sounds like the remote is mulfunctioning.

Thanks for the replies. I will contact Current and see what they say. Other than the remote problem, I like the light!
