    :) fluffybear ~ You have a point about the C.C. company. Thanks for pointing that out. I hadn't thought about that. Glad I posted in here. I just ordered a Cowboys one for hubby. Decided not to order a Vikings one for myself, though.

    I ordered a Viking one for my parents and they just love it. They are the envy of all the neighbors. My uncle is a big Viking fan (but to cheap to buy one) and is so jealous of their remote.

    Enjoy you remote (you will probably see it on Saturday)

    Say it did come DOA, you open it up and pop in the innards from any other white remote, IR OR RF, you now have a working NFL remote. How many have changed their cell phone cases, same thing.

    The way I read the disclaimer posted above that if it was broken at some point, they send a "white, normal' replacement.

    "If the remote control needs to be replaced, you will need to order a new remote control. These items are a special edition, so if you require a special edition remote control it will be replaced with a standard remote. "

    And, I think the swapping covers would work fine. From there pov, they only have so many in stock and can't guarantee 2 months from now they'd have another of your team in stock.

    I would get one but the Chiefs one is generic and certainly not worth $30. The bengals and chargers ones are nice.

    I just wanted to let anyone know that is in question, that the protection plan does not cover these remotes. I seen some questions regarding that, so I just wanted to let everyone know. Thanks!

    I have to doubt that they are exactly the same due to the backlight function and button.

    You're right you can't just use any remotes circuit board, if you want to keep the backlighting you would need to use the board out either rc32rf or the rc64rb. And because of the larger key spread, remotes like the rc23, rc24, and older are out of the question.

    But you didn't care for the backlighting, or even RF, then other remote models can be used like the rc32, rc34, rc64, and rc64r.

    The biggest problem with switching cases is getting the bezel off that surrounds the transport and cursor keys, without messing up the paint job, there are 4 screws under there that has come out.

    I've got to wonder why anyone would even bother, these remotes are dirt cheap. :)

    I can not get my new Browns one to work with my HR20-700 DVR. I went to the bedroom and did the directv code and it works fine for a sd box but it does nothing with the DVR... Help
