PS3 Randomly Turning On and Going into Remote Play

    Hey Guys,

    A strange one for you. Just tonight while I've been watching TV the P3 has turned itself on twice and gone into Remote Play mode. Now I do have it set to allow Remote Play but the only registered device is my PSP.

    Has anyone had this issue happen to them? I'm a little reluctant to leave the PS3 in standby mode if it's likely to repeatedly turn itself on. Has anyone heard of this happening, what's the solution?

    EDIT: It's just done it again.

    Hmnn I did some more googling and found the following:

    You need to set up the PS3 to turn on remotely (via the internet) for this to work (it's in the options for remote play). My router interferes with the process, so my PS3 ends up turning itself on at random intervals... This is apparently common for some (wireless) routers.

    So it seems it's a router issue. I don't have the foggiest how I might sort it out. Does anyone have any directions they can point me in?

    The psp can also switch istself on and off, which may be causing the ps3 to turn on... The PSP will turn itself off though so you may not notice it as the cause.

    But yeah, It happens me too.. I havent tried it on latest firmwares though.
