Balky Slide Remote

Anyone have a problem like this? When I fast forward through commercials, I find the unit is not responsive to commands to resume normal play speed. Both hitting the play button and hitting the 4th FF blink the blue light, but either aren't received or aren't recognized. I will hit it 5-10 times before it will catch. And then, of course, I need to use the 8 second back button many times to get back to the beginning of the segment. Very frustrating.

I've tried replacing the battery and holding the remote high in the air.

Suggestions?

What happens if you're in FF and hit pause?

Like the other buttons, sometimes it takes, often it doesn't.

Here's what I'm noticing. If I let it sit in triple FF more than a few seconds, the remote is balky in interrupting. I can interrupt it right after getting to ffx3. I can get several minutes ahead of where I want to resume before it will respond to the keys I am viscously hitting.

Perhaps if you hit them viciously instead...

I get that behavior on mine. I just gave up and pulled the RF receiver for now. (I really need to try a replacement remote)

It's almost acting like if you don't press a button for a moment that the bluetooth loses sync. So next time you press a button (for example to exit FF) there's a delay while it reestablishes the connection before sending the command. (Obviously I don't know it that's the case, but it seems like a possible explanation)

Same problem here. I just assumed it was because the nicad batteries I am using are getting old or that the buttons were wearing out.

I seems like more than just a moment of delay. Perhaps, I'm being too impatient and flooding the remote/system with key presses.

I replaced my batteries.
