Xbox360 Universal Media Remote - out of sync?

I have the Universal Media Remote from Microsoft, which was included with my HD-DVD package. I've been using it for over a year to watch videos/DVDs on my Xbox360 and it saved me the hassle of navigating with the game controller (which turns itself off every 5 minutes).

"I found this post describing similar issues. Press the Xbox 360 Guide button, go to Settings. Select System Settings, Console Settings, then Remote Control. I think those names should be correct (or close), and the last thing should be to select Xbox 360 Media Remote.

I'm not at home so I'm not able to verify this right now, but it's worth a shot."

Mine just did the same thing and I just realized that it was upside down (hadn't turned it on in a very long time and just hooked it up how I had sat it on the shelf last). When I turned it right side up, the remotes started working again. Try using the remote with the xbox in the upright and flat down positions. The sensors may have a problem augmenting based on the way that the xbox it sitting. It worked for me.
