OK, so I've been having a problem lately with the PS3IR-500 losing it's sync with the PS3 while using it. This was never a problem in the past, it would only lose its sync once a week or so, probably because I would power off the PS3 manually. Now, however, it simply doesn't sync. I go to the register BD remote Control section on the PS3, I unplug the PS3IR-500, plug it back in, and nothing happens... It used to blink the little red light when first plugged in until it got a sync, and it no longer does this. I tried updating the firmware, which went just fine, and that did not help either. Any thoughts???
BTW, I have it plugged into a constant usb power source, which is on a surge protector. I have also tried other usb power sources (my stereo, the PS3, etc...) to no avail.
