Customer Question
My question involves the remote...
My question involves the remote control.
It has been working well until yesterday.
Then it would not turn on the TV or the set top box.
I replaced the batteries with new ones and things were normal until this evening.
I can turn on the television but the set top box does not respond to the remote.
and Ideas ?
