Well simply no issues as I don't let the batteries run low. My Universal UR50 which gets used the most has a battery indicater, so if they are running low I recharge it and the other remotes.

So this is what the HW remote does any button I press they work as a up and down key, except that only the up button works on every button. Get what I mean?

Cool Thanks JH. I'm gonna order that usb for the Ematic. While watching a show the picture froze once while I watched a show maybe this will help.
I've learned to avoid using rechargeable batteries in remote controls. They have a lower voltage than alkaline batteries and sometimes that causes problems. So you might try alkaline batteries in your HW remote just to see if it makes a difference.

It depends on the remote though; some remotes work just fine with rechargeable batteries. I just got tired of trying to keep track of which remotes would work with them and which ones wouldn't.

You might try the powered USB hub with your HW too! Plug it in and see if it goes longer before the remote stops working. If it does, that's a good indication the HW is overheating.

BTW, you've mentioned a couple of intermittent problems with your new eMatic. I hope it's not defective.

Actually I had alkaline on the remote when it stopped working and put fresh ones and same thing. I've read on amazon that the Ematic freezes, so I was not surprised. I bet it's the USB thing like you said. I have the Ematic standing up so air circulate better on top and underneath. I'm gonna order that USB today. What do you think of the remote only working as the down button only JH. What would cause that?

The batteries.

In A/V reproduction accuracy, there is no concept of "accounting for taste". We don't "pick" the level of bass, etc., any more than we pick the ending of a play. High fidelity means an unmodified, neutral, exact copy (or "reproduction") of the original artist's tonal balance, timing, dynamics, etc..
