That was a weird incident in TWC's DVR & its RC.

I was fast forwarding to skip last night's KTLA's interruption on Penn & Teller: Can't Fool Us episode and then the RC122 stopped working (no red lights and other responses), so Arris/Motorola DCX3510M DVR was stuck at 2X. I had to power off the DVR in its front to make it stop.

After replacing the RC's original batteries (first attempt failed with rechargeable types), RC was working again. I powered on, resumed what I was doing earlier, and FFed but the DVR froze and decided to autoreboot!

Sheesh! That was weird! Did any of you had that happened?

Thank you in advance. Smiley Happy

remotes and cordless mikes need 1.5 v batteries and don't work well if at all with 1.25v nicad/ NiMh batteries.

Is that what rechargeable batteries used? I had to use non-rechargeable batteries to make the RC work again.

rechargeable alkalines are higher voltage, but in any case rechargeables aren't cost evffective in remotes....

Also, shouldn't the TWC's cable boxes tell me that the RC's batteries are low on HDTVs?

That would require the remote be able to send such a signal to the box, and the box having software included to display that information. Our remotes are not as sophisticated as an Xbox or Playstation or Wii controller lol

 

Now if you were to go and purchase lets say a Harmony remote by Logitech, that has a nice littel display screen on the remote, I believe that will give you a battery indicator.

Thanks. It would be nice to have that feature. I thought my RC was broken last night. Haha.
