TV not responding to the remote

Started happening yesterday.  I replaced the batteries, rebooted the box, was working again.  Today I am having the same issue.  The box turns on with the remote so it is not the batteries.  I rebooted the box, could change channels, but now I can't.  When I press guide nothing happens, when I press the xfinity button nothing happens.

Now it is somewhat working again, I was able to change channels.  But I still get nothing when pressing the guide or xfinity button.

Have you "Re-paired" the remote after changing batteries?

How do I do that?  Hubby was the technical expert but he is no longer here.

Well...it just magically started working again.  Very weird.  I would still like to know how to "re" pair the remote.
