I know there's been lots of discussion about slowness in the guide and the overall HR-2X performance. To that I would like to offer 'unresponsive remote'. At first, several weeks ago when my wife noticed it, I thought it was operator error. :lol: Then we got the latest software update. No improvement. Last night I tried to change the channel to 362. Pressed 3....nothing...tried again...nothing...then it started to change me to channel 3, not giving me the chance to complete the full channel number. :nono: I know in the past when your batteries were low you would get a message on the screen they advised you to change them. Is that still the case? Although I don't think this problem has anything to do with low batteries. Slow guide operation is one thing, but unresponsive remote is a death sentence!:eek2: Note: The remote is 18 months old.
