Yes, please get more beer.  Most people could actually use a few more beers.

Your remotes all fail at the same time because one remote is failing and spamming the area around your house with white noise, blocking all of the channels on your receivers. If one remote is jammed and just sending out the same signal constantly, none of the others will work. Most likely, its one of your garage remotes. Open those suckers and see if there's a button that's easy to jam. If I'm right, this would also mean that car remotes would also become intermittent at this point.

When it happens again, shut down everything else in your house and take out the batteries on the remotes. One by one, test them out to see which one is failing.
