I can't find it now, but someone was complaining about the remote with their Bolt purchase not working and it turned out to be bad batteries. As recently as a few days ago my remote was at 90%. This morning the remote wouldn't turn on the TV or cause the TiVo amber light to flash. I figured the remote was dead as I have never seen a TiVo remote behave like that. Usually if the batteries start to get low, it will first not be able to turn on my receiver, with everything else okay. However, when I put new batteries in, it worked fine. I got to think the Changhong (Spelling?) batteries shipped with the remote are crap.
