    Wife said she put in new batteries in the morning when the remote didn't respond. It worked for a while. Then in the afternoon it is dead again. Tried another set of batteries and still dead. Any incantations for the remote control to try? Can use the remote in the Tivo app for now so not sweating it. But I also don't mind cracking open the case and using a soldering iron if anyone has any voltages and where to measure them.

    Can you find the System Information display on the Bolt? One of the screens has the battery level.

    Standard. I ended up getting a new remote same day off Amazon and the family is happy again not having to use 3 remotes.

    Hadn't thought of that. I'll give them a call and see what they say. Would be nice to have a spare.
