Please excuse my dumb.

Don't you love when you have a flash of brilliance that merely points out how stupid you've been?

We've been having issues with our remote for months. It's like it has a mind of its own. It will only work about half of the time, especially if you're trying to fastforward and then press play on the DVR. Well, I was watching House last night and I started to fastforward through the commercials and it wouldn't stop. I shook the remote, I begged it to work, nothing. Then I realized that the buttons weren't lighting up. Could the answer really be that simple? Uh...yeah. It just needed new batteries. We were still using the originals that are at least 2 years old now. *smacks forehead* We are technically savvy people, I swear...it just hadn't occurred to either of us that the batteries might be dying. *sheepish grin*

  1. Glad you found the solution! (Hmm, I have a remote that's being difficult, too . . . should look into the battery situation.)
