Remote Died

Well, it only took 6 weeks and the remote died.  Tried 4 different sets of batteries...same result.  Comcast will swap them out, says it happens all the time.  Makes me wonder how long before the DVR craps out.

Re: Remote Died

Infant mortality?  Both my remote and DVR have been fine for 13 months.

Re: Remote Died

My remote is slowly dying, starting with the Down navigation button.  I have to call comcast soon to swap it out.  We almost had a full year together, though.  (My remote outlasted all of my romantic relationships.  Sad, eh?)

Bummer.  At least if it were a cell phone you could put it in vibrate mode.  sad

Is it wrong that I laughed about this one for a good long time?  And here I thought subtle double entendre was a lost art.

Well, yeah, obviously I did.
I ended up having to stand in line at the comcast store for an hour to get it exchanged for a new one which is working fine... so far.
