Same problem and so annoyed. Mostly because I like the remote for the Stream since it turns my tv on and off, switches inputs, and controls volume of the sound bar.
I sold my T4K on offerup for $25. You could use that money for ammo...if you can find it. LOLit does, and that's exactly what i'm doing. replacing the ts4k with a chromecast google tv, and using the tivo remote with it. taking the actual ts4k out for target practice before i set it on fire and then blow it up. actually going to purchase two more remotes for other TVs w/ CCGTV devices, the remotes are on tivo's site for $20.
