Brownout A drop in voltage in an electrical power supply, so named because it typically causes lights to dim. Systems supplied with three-phase electric power also suffer brownouts if one or more phases are absent, at reduced voltage, or incorrectly phased. Such malfunctions are particularly damaging to electric motors. Some brownouts, called voltage reductions, are made intentionally to prevent a full power outage.

Huh? What is a brown out?
I did check the remotes again this morning and they all worked fine, so it wasnt the batteries.

A lot of times after a while it will sort itself out, however there are times it will require a hard re-boot of the equipment if you will. I have seen electronic equipment do very strange things due to brown outs. Many times you wont even notice when a brownout happens as it can happen in an instant.
