    Today when I turned my tv on and tried to change channels. This Message popped up at the bottom of my screen. "Change batteries in your DIRECTV remote soon" and then went away after I pressed "Exit" on my DIRECTV Remote. That message I have NEVER seen since being with DIRECTV all these years since 1997. My Receivers are all H25/500’s.

    I've seen it on several of the 24's and 25's. Just a little reminder.

    It means you should change your batteries.

    Yup, but we don't see it as often as we should. Never have that problem with the ATV remotes.

    The annoying thing about it it's not accurate, when I get that message and check the batteries with a meter they are just fine.

    Not only the DirecTV remotes, but even got it on a Fire TV box once.

    What kind of meter did you use?

    I get a similar notice on my ATVs and when I get it the remotes always need to be charged. Apple does things correctly.
