I need a new TiVo remote. I had just the standard peanut remote. I always thought the glo feature was a good idea. Is the glo feature just as robust on the slide remote as the standard glo remote? Is there a reason not to get the slide other than the extra expense.
And the back story . . .
Four nights ago I was watching TV. I know I was using the TiVo remote. My wife asked me to check Facebook for any news about the daughter of a close friend who was in labor. (Was there a baby yet?)
(Thank you TiVo for letting us pause live TV. Remember when that was a novel idea? but I digress.)
I went upstairs to tell her no and went back down stairs to continue watching TV. No remote. In the span of probably less than 10 minutes the remote disappeared. I was very conscious of where I was during this time. We have searched high and low. No %@)#$%*)#$( Tivo Remote.
Fortunately I had the Droid app and a Logitech remote so we can watch TV. But after four days of no remote, I have decided to indulge and buy one of the glo remotes that I have been eyeing for a long time.
