    Poor Ben. The technological age hasn’t been too kind to you has it, fella?

    My garage door remote HATES me. It never closes when I hit the button. It works for my husband, though.

    Our Tivo remote has the words worn off most of the buttons. I have pushed the wrong button and the TV goes nuts and I have NO idea what I did. I have to Google what the remote looks like to see how to undo what I did. Comcast isn’t great, but they were happy to swap out remotes when that happens. I know, first world problems…

    Some garage door remotes have buttons to control the lights, and to lock the garage door.

    I had a remote for my Surround-Sound Capable Receiver which suddenly stopped responding to over half of the button-presses. I actually bought a replacement online and had been using it for a number of months when it started doing the same thing. I almost ordered another replacement, but after reading through the downloaded PDF manual for the Receiver, I discovered that I had hit a button that put things into a different “Mode”. Yes, the original remote was absolutely fine, just in the wrong mode…

    He’s got a point… and what really irks me is when the remote MUST be used because there are no controls on the device (TV, Receiver, etc. etc.) that will perform the function.

    When I recently changed my wireless plan with my carrier they supplied me with the simplest remote I’ve had in a long time. It does everything the others did with just a few buttons. Finally someone’s listening to the consumer!

    Those other buttons are ‘just in case’ buttons, in case you need them some time.

    If we had only known, we would have been much more appreciative back in the days when all we had to do was get up, walk across the room, and turn one knob to change the channel.
