I dont care about the UI. Please I want a IRD that responds. Is there a HD-DVR that responds after 30 commands?
I should be able to shoot the remote at the ceiling and it works. Not have to point it directly at the DVR, i mean get under my table and struggle to get it to turn channels.
I put fresh batteries in it, used another remote etc. I just wanna not have to fight to change the channel.
Are there RF remotes available?
you hit it on the head, %99 of remotes now use infrared, not like the old RF broadcast remotes. the trade off was longer range and less power consumption but now you have to point it at the receiver.
