I have a multimeter. Is that check something I could do?

Gas Logs Issues

Normally yes, but since you seem to have more than one fault going on, the interpretation of the results would be questionable. You could try disconnecting just the two wires from the receiver to the manual switch to see if the manual part of the fire place will turn it on & off. If it works OK..measure the dcmv of the power pile leads at the gas valve with the manual switch off, and then on. It should be over 100 and 250 dcmv respectively.

Gas Logs Issues

Differrent brand than mine so maybe not applicable but my receiver is actually built into the 3-position manual switch (off-on-remote), and that is where the receiver batteries live. If you haven't looked there you might want to pull the cover plate off and have a peek.
Live long and prosper.

Don't know what to think. I turned on the logs for the season and it's now working fine.Left scratching my head.
