Remote Batteries & Wrong Rovi Data
A couple of things are too annoying not to mention:
1. The DVR keeps scheduling unwanted programs to record because, apparently, the intended show has aired in that slot before and been scheduled as a series. Maybe Rovi is changing some metadata and ignoring others? (I'm pretending to know of what I speak.)
2. I finally decided to replace my remote's batteries. Got tired of shaking and whacking it to persuade it to work again. Is it too much to ask for a remote that uses ordinary AAA cells? In addition to the DVR+'s remote being ridiculously tricky to open (more damage is done to it each time, with a screwdriver or closest approximation), the 2032 button cells' packaging was crazy-tough to get into. I needed scissors and a razor! (Whom would I sue if I had injured myself at any point in all of this?) And I'm guessing the new batteries won't last as long as remote batteries typically do. Some strange logic is at work here, methinks.
