XR15 remote gives error sound when pressing Voice button

When using the Voice button on my XR15 remote, if the remote hasn't been touched for 10 minutes or so, I receive the error beep indication and the Try Again message. I must then wait 5 seconds before pressing the Voice button a second time, and then it works correctly. I just had *all* my equipment replaced today, and was hoping that with the new equipment, this problem would be gone. But alas, the new equipment behaves exactly the same as the old equipment. There are two details that I can add. First, I confirmed that when the Voice button triggers the error beep, the blue light on the remote lights up normally.  Second, I have configured my remote to control an AV receiver for volume control instead of the TV. My TV is a Samsung; my AV receiver is a Yamaha. Any help would be appreciated.

I should add that this issue only occurs with the main set top box. I've never had this issue on the satellite box.

Er, jsf, this occurs when the remote battery is almost gone -- error beep once and then often works on the second try. Voice input seems to require more voltage than button presses.
