I had the same problem only a few weeks ago. I have been a customer for about 18 months. First remote's batteries lasted about 6 months, then it went to about 3, and then they would go dead in less than a week. Call dish or go online to their chat. If you have the DHPP, they will send you a remote for no charge, no shipping at all. You will not even have to send the old one back. Sounds like other people have had this problem as well.puckwithahalo said:call dish and get the remote replaced, its a known issue and is faulty.
