I think my remote hit the ground one too many times so now a few select buttons won't work. I took apart the remote and cleaned with alcohol but no luck. I've been toying with the idea of upgrading to the Premiere but I'm not sure if I should or not. I'm not on a lifetime, so I am paying $12 a month but I have upgraded the HDD. Looks like I can get service for $14 but I am leaning towards lifetime because I've kept my HD box for 4 years. Should I just cough up the cash for a remote, or is now a good time to just make the plunge into Premiere? I can't decide.
