View Full Version : Tivo Remote Control Suggestion
03-17-2006, 12:11 PM
The peanut shaped remote makes it difficult to know if I'm pointing the front or back of the remote at the tv (by feel). I couldn't tell you how many times I've gone to FF through a commercial - only have it reverse or do nothing because I'm pointing it the wrong way. I usually watch tv with the lights dimmed, so I can't see it and would rather be able to do it without having to see it anyway. If the remote were not the same shape in the front as the back, I would know by feel.

The Series3 remote is backlit, weighted differently, and has a ribbed texture on the bottom of one end.

I've always been able to tell with a quick thumb check - one end has the directional pad. Though the battery end always feels heavier to me anyway.
As filburt1 said though, the new remote makes it very obvious.

Get the Logitech Harmony 880, and throw all your other remotes in a drawer and forget about them! :p
