My batteries have lasted 8 months, but I disabled the backlight. I never look at my remote since I'm a "feel" guy.ThreeSoFar'sBro said:You can buy a whole new remote for $49.99...I've never heard of buying just the cover.
YES, my remote's buttons are wearing off with bright white underneath. The batteries still go dead quickly (and I do not want to disable the backlight, I like that), and it's the only remote I've ever owned where it seems the buttons don't always work.
Louie, The $8.99 replacement remotes on ebay from eklectricsystems work fine.louiemanno said:Speaking about TiVo remotes do they sell them separately in retail shops?
And why can't you get a TiVo code with the cheep universal remote controls?
If you loose your remote and have to order via the TiVo website you are out of luck for 3 days. One time I convinced the guy at Radio Shack to give me a loaner.
I have the same problem. The "Input" button that is programmed for my TV only seems to fire every 4th or 5th time you press it. I tried using the codes given during the setup and I also tried just using the remote learning feature and they all came out the same.ThreeSoFar'sBro said:... it's the only remote I've ever owned where it seems the buttons don't always work.
+1 Why is that? Every remote I have programmed for my TV's input works fine, including Comcraps remote for my DCT-700. You'd think a high end S3 remote would function properly!litkaj said:I have the same problem. The "Input" button that is programmed for my TV only seems to fire every 4th or 5th time you press it.
