Have you tried removing the batteries from your remote? Perhaps your remote is sending signals to the box. Or perhaps another device is in your house is sending signals that mimic the pause button being pushed on your remote. Do you live near an airport? Do these problems occur only when your next door neighbor is home? Did you recently add a new piece of furniture that may reflect or refract light differently in the room that has the box that controls the pausing? Did you recently move the box (even just a few centimeters) that controls the pausing? Does your system use IR or RF for remote control? Did you buy a new cordless phone system recently? Is that a nickel on the floor over there in the corner? Do you sometimes where clothing that contains RFID chips in them?
I know these ideas are way outside the box, but every now and then thats where you'll find your solution. Oh yeah, finders keepers on that nickel if it is one.
