    Ive had the 942 for about a year. Normally the batterys in the remote #2 lasted i dunno maybe 2 months or so.

    Now i only get a week or two out of them. What could be wrong?

    You might need a new remote #2. It might have something that is shorted inside using batteries faster. Call dish see what they say, otherwise ebay has them for fairly cheap.

    I thought it might be shorted, thanks for the reply.

    I am having exactly the same problem with my remote #2. Batteries last a couple of weeks whereas the remote #1 batteries last for several months.
