Hello, I’m Nathan, and I’ll be assisting you today. My livelihood depends on your positive feedback, so your satisfaction is my highest priority.

Sorry to hear you’re having trouble.

Note - it is likely that this issue will not be able to be resolved without having the appropriate remote, which means you will probably have to buy a replacement remote to proceed with further steps.
