box no longer receives remote signal

box no longer receives remote signal

My Comcast box use to permit my remote to work even if it was not in line of sight (box is in a cabinet in adjoining room).  But this has stopped working.  The remote now only works if I point it directly at the box.  Is it likely the receiver in the box is defective, or could it be a different issue?  Batteries in remote are good.

Try re-pairing the remote to the box
